Took my wife there for a celebration. Food was alright but at most a Michelin 1 star standard. The saving grace was the sensory delights in terms of lights, sounds and smell. However, it fell fall when it came to taste! Call us traditional but...More

Take out a second mortgage. Just go. Amazing theatre of food. Expect an assault on all your senses. Book far far ahead — or call and see if you can be lucky in the day

No, they don't do anything special. The whole menu is special! You have absolutely no choice, it is a succession of more or less 12 plates of culinary art. When you pay one thousand dollar per person for a menu, you don't... More

Conceived by Paul Pairet since 1996 and opened in May 2012, Ultraviolet is the first restaurant of its kind uniting food with multi-sensorial technologies in order to create a fully immersive dining experience. A single table of ten seats only. A dining room of high-end technology. A 20-course "Avant-Garde" set menu. All guests sit together. The experience unfolds as a play. Food leads. Each course is enhanced with its own taste-tailored atmosphere: lights, sounds, music, scents, projection, images and imagination... And food.
