One of the best, if not the best dinner we ever had! The atmosphere inspiring, the service just perfect, not overdoing it, very attentive, with just the right touch of humor and friendliness. They even made some small changes in the menu just for me because I could not eat everything. I really appreciated it! What can I say about... More

This three hour dinner was delicious and the service impeccable, while not stiff and formal. The food was inventive and there were so many different tastes and textures, it was an adventure.

This is a very serious restaurant that has fun with the food and their hospitality. She had three courses, I had four, but between the appetizers served gratis with the aperitif, the ten variations of root vegetables and oysters in the innovative salad, the many tastes in the main plates, and the desserts upon desserts, I imagine we had 25...

Dear lyricskipper You detected well our culinary "weak spots", which we have been following for so many years with a great passion and devotion. Thank you for your excellent rating, which touches our very long way to a Michelin star. But after all, it still has to be fun to the guest. We are glad, that we could make you... More

I meant to write this quite some time ago! We were in Heidelberg in July of 2013. It was a wonderful town, and everything about it was delightful. This meal, though, was the most amazing thing I've ever enjoyed. From start to finish it was delightful. The flavors were fantastic, and the presentation lovely. The servers were gracious, witty, and... More

Superb service, ambience and food were what one expects at a Michelin-starred restaurant. Everything was choreographed by a wonderful French Maitre d' who was able to give each table his full attention. The food was innovative, tasty, well-presented and made full use of local produce. Le Gourmet did not disappoint.

Loved the maître who was knowledgeable and friendly too, a perfect complement to the fine food with obvious respect for seasons and terroir, well worth the recently awarded Michelin star. Would return again if in the area.

They earned their first Michelin star just recently, and still show the engagement and motivation they needed to get it. The food is very refined, showing lots of small details on each plate (example: as amouse bouche, they served a miniature club sandwich, as one mouthful, and besides the same, disassembled into the single ingredients). The atmosphere was remarkable, one... More

Dear dkbe, Thank you very much for the granted positive accolade, which speaks for itself. Regarding the ETA. Yes, you are right, at a first glance it might perhaps appear somehow petty. But half an hour of production time on a stove with limited space can influence the service timing of a whole evening - also for other tables -... More

Ate there a business dinner earlier this week. You don't really know what to expect from each dish, the menue is words that turn out into a wonder. The plates are a work of art, not everything is on the same level, but the experience is total. They surprise you with dishes OTH from the kitchen

Dear Scorpio12, Superstitious? It's Friday the 13th, and we obtain such a positive culinary compliment! Thank you for confirming the Michelin star from your very own perspective. "Words which turn into wonder" what a nice description. Well, we let the dishes speak and not only the words, that is much better for the guest... Hoping to see you soon in... More

Went there for a corporate dinner and was very impressed. The Niçoise salad interpretation was a real winner loved the flavours from the small deconstructed components. The steak marinated I think in Worcestershire sauce was the best I have Nd in 12 months. Te desert platter delightful. I wouldn't normally expect food of this quality for a 20 person corporate...

Dear dpe, Serving a gourmet menu for 2 persons is normally easy - but for a party of 20 - the whole team really has to be on their toes. Thank you for extending the highly appreciated seal of approval especially in this very difficult league. Hoping that the other corporate guests were equally impressed like you. Big contracts are...

I would recommend that you sit in the rustic restaurant … that is where the atmosphere is magic, where you will have a fabulous time to enjoy this delicious meal the chef creates…where the local wines taste best… Le Gourmet Restaurant itself we found too STIFF & DUSTY ….
