A very small place that is a hard to get reservation as they save many tables for guests of the hotel. The tables are close together and you’ll hear lots of English spoken. It is a tasting menu that offers some supplement charges if you want to change some of the courses. The menu varies every night but has basic similarities over the course of a week. We have eaten here a number of times and it is always good but sometimes more to the average.
They started with a couple amuse, the first being a crispy cracker with sausage – very nice. The second was a hot cheese gougère and it was consumed before photographed.
A lovely bread awaits you at the table.
The first course was a pickled herring and head cheese pate. It was too vinegary and fishy for me but I could appreciate it for the what it was; it just wasn’t to my taste.
We chose to do the supplement for the fish course and it was well worth the extra 30 euros for a wonderful lobster and pineapple. An odd combination that really worked.
The main course of hare with foie gras was a flavor explosion and very yummy. There was a slight liver taste component and it wasn’t a pretty dish but it was really tasty.
The cheese course is a large tray of a lot of soft and hard cheeses as well as fruit, honey and quince. It is usually place bridging between your table and your neighbor’s. It makes a fun chance to chat and is without a doubt my favorite part of the meal.
We finished with a lovely dessert with sweet, tart and crispy components. It was light but satisfied my sweet urge.
They have a nice but not huge selection of apéritifs and digestifs to go with dessert and present you with orange caramels to finish the meal.
