Tonight was the second tone we've been to St Germain and this time was even better than the last! We purchased a grab one voucher for the six course degustation menu, and were not disappointed by a single course. We will most definitely be back!

One of the best meals I have ever had, my entree of the wild rabbit was delicious, and the ​Traditional Cassoulet main was amazing. My husband had the beef eye fillet, which was cooked to perfection.
