A quote, a poem, an advice, which follows you everywhere?

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.  

How do you feel at Le Phare?

I enjoy the working environment, it is friendly, relaxed, and productive thanks to Hanna and team. Also I love the café downstairs, the food is great.
