We stayed two nights in the (perfectly comfortable) hotel purely in order to be able to try as much of the food as possible in the short time we had. The first night we chose the 'gourmet' menu and we opted to have a glass of wine included with each course (not the cheapest way to drink wine but each wine they had picked was the perfect complement to the course it was chosen to go with). After 'nibbles' (buttered and peppered radishes, a beetroot foam in which was enclosed a cube of raw salmon and something heavenly based on foie gras - all conveniently speared on cocktail sticks) we embarked on the first of the five courses, seared foie gras which was served with a warm fig and a rich duck 'gravy' (the waiter thoughtfully left the jug on the table ...) The liver was meltingly tender beneath a crisply seared and salty outside layer. The second course of céleri rémoulade and a carpaccio of scallops didn't work quite so well as the delicate taste and soft texture of the oh-so-fresh scallops were completely overwhelmed by the strong and nutty celeriac. A case of the whole not being quite as good as the sum of its parts.
The second night we had the cheaper (but possibly even better) 'temptation' menu (again with wine) which I believe changes each day. Three courses, with two choices for each. Without going into too much detail, the main course of pork was possibly the best I have ever eaten. No. Make that definitely.
