We visited the Denis Martin restaurant on the occasion of my husband's birthday celebration. We had the "Show + Evolution dinner" option in Switzerland's only molecular gastronomy restaurant. The demonstration and presentation by the chef himself before the dinner was very interesting and informative and set the right tone for the food afterwards. The Evolution dinner was 20 courses and... More

We had a really great experience which started with a show explaining how the food is prepared followed by a 20 course meal. Its very interesting and I would definitely recommend this experience (more so for adults).

It was the first time I experienced the molecular gastronomy and we took the full menu "Evolution". It was an interesting evening with a variety of plates and flavours and the service staff is excellent. However and concluding the evening, I think it is overpriced and I didn't leave the restaurant saying that I will return there.

If you like starting your fireplace with 100 euro notes, you'll love this place. It is entertaining but the food prepared is gimmicky and I was hungry by the time we returned to our hotel in Evian, France. I guess you could look at it as a bucket list item. It would've been more fun to enjoy a great steak... More

We are not speaking about high gastronomy, it is different, this restaurant is simply a unique culinary experience! Surely it does not fit for the lovers of traditional "cousine", but if you like trying what fantasy can do in "culinary art", it is the place for you! PS In restaurants of this level, that would be a pity to talk... More

This is my third visit at Denis Martin's restaurant, and he blew my mind once again. Every entree is a delight to the eye and then an explosion of tastes and textures for the tastebuds. I did the 1.5 hours demo in the lab before the meal, and it was highly interesting. There is a whole philosophy behind D. Martin's... More

I have the impression this is a shrine to Mr Martin and if you're keen to worship his creative imagination without worrying about the expense, then go for it. As soon as service and value enter the equation I recommend you think twice. There are some fabulous options within a few km most of whom will cost you no more... More

We enjoyed the set meal of nine courses and the experience was definitely of a mixed nature. On the one hand, this cuisine is definitely an art requiring a lot of research and trials. It is also fun to find a pigeon in a real air mail envelope, although it seems that this dish has been on the menu for... More

If you want to try something new, something different, you should definitely go. It's original, it's fun, it's food that you can talk about. You enjoy guessing what you are eating. If your main interest is simply in the taste of food, you might be somewhat disappointed. In my view, half of the plate were good, the other half: so-so.... More
