the setting of the room is very intimate and romantic. The service is excellent and not to mention the menu! The cuisine is creative and at the same time, the portion are well served (not always the case in high end restaurants). We are going there whenver we get a chance. For Sancerre lovers, they have an excellent one!

We had to try this one, as we were staying in the hotel. We ate quite early and felt rather too much attention from the staff, albeit well-intentioned! The food was fussy and very expensive, but fun to try just once. The wine mark-up was outrageous.

Just got back from an amazing experience at L'Etrier. We hadn't booked, but off season fortunately got a table. We were not dressed for the occasion having left half of our clothes at home but staff didn't bat an eyelid which in all fairness they could have done. We were mostly looked after by a very tall, attractive waiter, I... More

We had 2 seafood platters (30 and 50eur each), and it was fresh and really abundant (too much..) Service is high level (not like french standards...) Atmosphere is really nice and refined - nearly classical - there is also a sort of veranda where you can eat Prices are high but in line for what you get
