Dolce by Ferrero; the new multi-layered dining experience by Ferrero Rocher. Guests will be treated to, in essence, a delicately deconstructed Ferrero Rocher, a culinary ode to the mosaic of textures and tastes, encompassed in a Ferrero.

This luxurious brilliance will only be here until the 11th of December so make sure you head down! Tickets are now sold out, but walk-up’s are available.
