It was our first night in Dijon and we found this restaurant using the guide that was given to us at the tourism office. It was close to our hotel and it had a michelin star, so we thought it was a safe choice. We couldn't be more wrong.
We went there on a tuesday evening without reservations, but we got a table anyway. There were only three tables for the whole night. I should've sensed that something was wrong, but i stayed positive and looked forward to our dinner. We chose the most expensive degustation menu (it was about 110EUR if i remember correctly) and ordered another two bottles of wine. It was our first fine dining experience in Dijon and we had high expectations.
Our dinner started with some uninteresting amuse bouche, followed by a fois gras in consomme. The previous reviewer was right: it tasted like a bucket of salt had been poured into the dish! I tried to be polite and finished the dish the best i could, but when our server asked us about the food, i told him that it was a bit too salty for my taste. The next dish was even worse: sea urchin in mushroom soup, with a raw egg at the bottom of the bowl. Again, another bucket of salt. i was only able to take two spoonfuls before i had to down another glass of water. This time, the server rather offended, asked if there was a problem with the dish. I tried to be polite and told them that it was too salty for my taste, and straight away he blamed it on the sea urchin! I've eaten many different types of sea urchin and my palate is experienced enough to know that the little piece of sea urchin could not have caused all that saltiness in the dish! The thing is, if you feel so strongly about your dishes, then don't bother asking how i feel about it.
Our meal ended up being well over 300EUR and it was way overpriced and wasn't worth it. For that price i expect a lot more from their food and service. Needless to say, i will never return to this restaurant and i don't recommend it to anyone.
