Wow, that was an experience. It was quite the drive to get there (!) but what a place! Very professional, and each course was such a culinary experience. Well worth the wait, and the drive, and the cost. Fun.

It is hard to describe how insanely great this restaurant is. It sits at the intersection of superb French Cooking and innovation across the appetisers, Mains, bread and desserts. This is simply one of the best restaurants in the world.

We have been luck enough to have eaten here several times over the years, and the standard is always unbelievable. To have retained three Michelin stars for 8 years speaks volumes for the chef and staff. Although a sophisticated establishment, service is not at all...More

everything is outstanding at l'Auberge du Vieux Puits. The food is always surprising, the wines are excellent including some excellent regional unexpensive bottles. Cheese is home-aged and deserves some stars by itself. On top of this - which is becoming an exception for Michelin 3-stars...More

Sorry I've just seen this! I don't think the menu differs but you have a choice of menus i.e. A la carte or tasting menus.
