The food here is exquisite, the choices offered in the table d' hote lunch menu interesting and varied. The colours, textures and tastes are well presented on the plate with ingredients juxtaposed to add to the delight. Of course it is. This is a Michelin star restaurant isn't it? So this is to be expected. But lunch is more than food. It has a purpose: to meet, to confide and converse, to propose, to laugh and to listen. Yet the Michelin regime dictates otherwise. Specifically tasked waiters constantly intercede and interrupt. Whilst requests given to the wrong level go unfulfilled. I have grown tired of these enforced stipulations of Michelin's heavy tread. Surely in todays egalitarian age we should all be more relaxed especially at lunch. Although on a midweek day the restaurant was busy with business men, families and tourists who perhaps welcome the tightly structure framework. I do not. Such success as this restaurant enjoys should at least mean a web site that is neither inadequate ( on site staff say they cannot access the booking system leading to wasteful emails and telephone calls ) nor inaccurate ( the wine list bears scant resemblance to the wine on offer).
So there you have it...confirmation; you'll be blown away by the food but it will mean submission to an inflexible overblown regime
