I have been lucky enough to eat in a number of Michelin Star restaurants and The Cheval Blanc is utterly wonderful and one of the best. The service and ambiance were perfect and the food is almost indescribable! I had the beef followed by the veal and as you would expect they were both perfection. The cheese board has a... More

I had a wonderful lunch. The splendid food was only equaled by the sincere and elegant service. Received a recommendation of an excellent bottle of Swiss wine. The room had an abundance of natural light and allowed for easy conversation. I only have superlatives for the entire experience-- well worth the price.
