Did the Chef Surprise tasting menu for our anniversary dinner. It was delicious and the dishes were beautiful to look at but the time between the courses was way too long. 20 minutes in some cases. It just got boring after a while. Over four hours is too long. I would have given it 5 stars if not for that... More

Pate de foie gras far too fatty, too many fatty and greasy dishes and desserts. Service (except wine steward) rather slow and inattentive. Birthday cake for me was served to my guest... And all that for €660 (almost a thousand bucks)??? They should learn from the Edvard at the Palais Hansen in Vienna, best food I had in 5 years..... More

We really enjoyed our meal--had the larger of the Prix Fixe dinners. One diner had a shellfish allergy and they were very accommodating. Wine pairings went well and the rose champagne to start worth the 40 euro price. Services was very good except we think they forgot about us at the end of the meal. we ordered an additional cheese...

This is hotel restaurant and it very well designed and great service. Food was just plain and not interesting at all. The restaurant was half empty but we had to wait for each dish for a long time. It seemed that all "testing menu" guests were serviced first. We were forced to get a glass of Champagne even after we... More

This is simply not just a meal but an entire experience. We had a lovely evening and was made extremely welcomed by Romain the general Manager. The food was beautifully presented and ceremoniously delivered to the table. A pricey evening, but what an experience! Just loved it. Smart dress is essential, sit back and enjoy!

Very nice place and a welcoming a 2 star worthy. But then the level dropped. We have been to several star restaurants this year including 2 3 star. This restaurant is prized as a 3 star , but doesn't serve food with enough excitement in the tast, and it takes way too long between the dishes. When they missed to... More

I went yesterday for a dinner and I was surprised with the food taste and the service. Actually it's a very pleasant place in which you can dress up and have an excellent food accompanied with the best service, their staff is one of a kind, very professional and very well trained. We tried their Ribeye with mushrooms as a... More

Our two families (4 adults, 4 teenagers) enjoyed the 7 course tasting menu (chef's choice). Solid gourmet experience with beautiful, very professional service and a lovely traditional, formal ambience. Not nearly as pretentious as other similar restaurants in the Côte D'Azur. Expertly crafted food. Disappointed that the main course was pork (no beef, no lamb, no foie gras). With four... More

I like fine dining and am often disappointed when visiting new venues but on this occasion I have to say it was better than expected. The menu's were comprehensive with good choice. We took the fixed price menu and everything was absolutely delicious. Well done Chef! The wine list needs improvement, too much terroir and heritage rather than nice wines... More

My husband and I have been disappointed with “Michelin Star” restaurants, particularly in France, so I was reluctant to give it another go at this, admittedly, pricey venue. We walked into a beautifully appointed dining salon, outfitted with lime green and fuscia pink velvet and pink table cloths. Our service began with the champagne trolley, which we happily accepted. Diners... More
