I was taken here while on business in Bordeaux, and enjoyed the experience. There is sometimes a view that French food is traditionally very French and because of the outstanding quality of French cuisine has not explored the flavours of the world as much as countries such as the UK, which have often needed to look overseas for inspiration.
This restaurant shows what happens when French food does begin to explore the world. The food was innovative and often excellent. Many dishes had some degree of Asian flavour to them, and there were some interesting dishes on the menu.
I had some superb foie gras, and some beautiful scallops - perfectly cooked with a warm spiced butternut squash puree. Everything was beautifully presented, and the flavouring was subtle - definitely French with a twist rather than a full-on embrace of world food. Wine was excellent and (of course) French.
My only question lies in the price. Fortunately my hosts were paying, but the bill would have been high considering what was served. The quality of cooking is very good - but if this place was in my home town of York in the UK, it would probably be the most expensive restaurant in town, and I'm not 100% sure it would be the best.
