    Best food we had ever. Each plate was a masterpiece by itself. Of course, the prices could not be expected to be as much as an ordinary restaurant. But it was worth every penny. Service was exceptional. Thanks for this amazing night.

    Wonderful experience on our second annual pilgrimage from Singapore. We loved the new bar area for great cocktails and noted the new uniforms which were immaculate. Staff knowledgeable, gracious and serious. We had the à la carte - the amuse bouche perfectly balanced, asparagus delightful even at end of the season. (Another detail imparted by the team.) delicious duck and our friends loved the fish. The wild strawberries are now part of the tradition of the pilgrimage! Despite just arriving at the restaurant for the evening we had the pleasure of a short conversation with Clare Smyth. We dined at the chef’s table with it stunning flower arrangement. Thank you for the glorious experience again

    Food was sub par and definitely not worth the money I spent. Every item in the tasting menu (we tried two tasting menu - classic and seasonal) and both felt flat. 800 dollars for this kind of food is simply put a rip off.

    Savoureuse expérience: nous avons partagé les menus Classic, et Season, nous conseillons aussi bien l’un que l’autre. Les mets sont finement cuisinés, aussi bien le poisson que les viandes (lamb , duck , excellents) les légumes sont bien mis en valeur (savoureuses morilles), la présentation est extrêmement soignée, c’est un plaisir des yeux. Que dire des desserts (on a adoré le carrot cake revisité). On est reçus dans un petit hôtel particulier composé de différents salons très cosy. Le service est chaleureux. On recommande vivement!

    We thought nothing would surprised us since we have lunch there before, but the food, the staff, the wine pairing always surpass our expectations every time! Thank you so much for the superb service!
