WOW! What an experience! I dined here for Christmas brunch with my family. Luckily, I didn't have to spend 30 minutes looking at the menu tossing and turning over what I wanted to choose as my appetizer and entree. I had a chance to try just about everything that they put on the cloth-covered tables. The dishes that teased my... More

We are generally not fond of prix fixe menus, but found this to be an exception. Top notch service, delicious food without flavours that are too fussy, and excellent presentation. Only downside was the volleyball tournament across the street which blocked the view of the lake and played loud music, which diminished the ambiance although not at the fault of... More

I had a really great meal at the Chat-Botte! They offer several menus, fish, truffle, winter and a nice a la carte selection. I had the winter menu, which started off with all kinds of little snacks and an amuse bouche. First course was one of the best foie gras dishes I've ever had, maybe even the best. The black... More

We had a 5 course seafood menu at Le Chat Botte on Boxing Day. I had first booked a table at Rasoi by Vineet but since they informed me one month later that they are closed at Christmas (supposedly news for them), we ended up on Le Chat Botte, which had uncomplicated and high-class booking process. We really did not... More

The setting and interior are classic but spacious and ""modern" at the same time. The service in reassuringly proper but not too stiff. The food was perfect, with an imaginary parade of dishes. We asked for accompanying wine for each course, which was not an "official" option, but they really seemed to enjoy trying to accommodate us. Great stuff and... More
