Fine dining restaurant, must book, predrinks in lounge. Service was slow as we were two women together with no man in our company. That situation often incurs poor service with other groups with men getting better more prompt attention. Just a little irritation. The meal ordered from the longe( waiter comes and asks for our selection from the menu with... More

Restaurant was over priced, full of very slow staff, another guest brought a dog into the restaurant and we had to argue ! with the waiting staff to get them to bring us something as simple as some butter to accompany the bread that they brought to our table and left for 20 minutes. The food when eventually it turned... More

There were three fish on the menu and we ordered one of them. They only had one order left although our reservation was early in the evening. They substituted Sea Bream which was good. The service was excellent and the room pleasant and quiet. However, the food was ordinary. The amuse bouche was again only pleasant, as was the fish.... More

The food was well presented and well cooked with subtle flavours and delicious wines on offer with the lunch menu. staff were very attentive and professional. This restaurant is worth the michelin star and a visit. The only thing I would say is that other restaurants in the area offer just as good food for a much more affordable price.

Having checked in to our hotel, we came away for lunch. Reservations were previously made and therefore we got a place in the garden. The setting was perfect. We chose from the set menu. We were surprised with the offering on the Child's menu which was excellent including Foie Gras. The menu offering for the adults was just as good.... More

Food was simply amazing, worthy Michelin star reputation. However, we were attached by bees, nothing unusual for summer. Surprising was staff reaction, as they were quietly observing our kids struggle with bees, without any intention to intervene. I would rather have my glass empty next time, if I can just quietly enjoy my food with family.

We were staying in the hotel which houses La barbacane (see separate review). The room is mock baronial in style which is slightly redolent of British country house hotels of 20 years ago but nonetheless is spacious with pleasant views of the hotel gardens\terrace. The food was good but would have benefited from less sophistication and greater clarity of intent.... More

We enjoyed the setting - the terrace really is superb. The food was very good, too, especially the pigeon and the veal main courses which were perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. The food service was also very good. The wine service was, however, very poor, which, considering the excessive mark-up on the wine prices, is unforgivable for a Michelin starred... More
