I am embarrassed to say that it took 25 years to return here!! From stumbling upon a haven of gastronomy whilst camping in our teens (clad in T-shirts and shorts!) to our next return for my birthday just recently (now that we are all grown-up and live in France), none of the magic has faded. In fact, we actually walked around the stunning formal-but-randomly designed grounds post-lunch, whereas we were far too embarrassed in our teens to be seen outside so under-dressed!
The setting only but heightened our culinary enjoyment of the afternoon. We felt a wee bit guilty that the kitchen was working solely for our pleasure (a wet February Saturday lunchtime), but what pleasure. We both took the Balade Hivernale - a symphony of dishes executed to perfection, singing the praises of tête de veau, foie gras, scallops, rabbit, cheeses, pre and full dessert and coffee/petits fours. Our service was friendly and yet professionally restrained. There was NO pre-imposed service charge added to our bill - (normally obligatoire in most Michelin & similar establishments), and our delightfully memorable souvenir of the day was sharing the intimate salon afterwards with the snoozing proprietor! - the same man who asked us if we had enjoyed our evening - without batting an eyelid (when we had attempted to squirm under the tablecloth in our camping attire) - all those years ago!!
Bravo et on reviendra bientôt - ne changez rien!
