“Awaiting a Michelin Star -- or Two”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

If this place hasn't already earned a Michelin Star, it should. Maybe even a second star. It really is that good. Absolutely.

The setting is lovely (almost a small medievel ballroom) and every morsel of food is pure magic. The foie gras was simply stunning, as was every course right through dessert and the clever and captivating collection of petit-fours that accompanied dessert.

If you speak English, be sure to ask for Nicolas to be your waiter. He speaks wonderful English, and is absolutely charming in every way.

Truly one of the best restaurants in France -- it easily surpasses most of the best restaurants in Paris, without question -- and one of the finest in the world. Go and enjoy -- and be prepared for it to keep drawing you back again and again.

“Horrible service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Took one hour for bread and water to arrive at table then another 2 for all courses. No service between courses, very expensive. We expect long meals at nice restaurants but to wait an hour for bread and water is not acceptable. Did not eat again at restaurant during our hotel stay at chateau.

Excellent wine list (pricey!!) and a varied, sumptuous menu - well worth the several bob outlay!

“Yumm!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

Food was lovely, the dessert was mouth watering. We ordered a steak and it was perfectly cooked, the restaurant has a vast wine list (although I feel a restaurant as such needs a sommelier) .
