Probably the best lunch we have had on our trip in France this year. As a Michelin star restaurant we expected it to be great. We were not disappointed. Each dish was presented well and tasted divine. Also for 32 euros for three courses it was very cheap. This is a small restaurant around 7 to 8 tables so fills up quickly. You can order a menu with matching wines which would be excellent for dinner. Given the terrible selection of mediocre restaurants close by you must give this one a try.

We were very impressed with this restaurant. The quality/price ratio was outstanding. Their commitment to local and seasonal ingredients was apparent throughout the meal. The server was very friendly unlike many French restaurants. Their was a liitle too much foamy stuff for my liking, but having eaten at many restaurants throughout our trip (including a 3 michelin star restaurant), I can say unequivocally that the taste and presentation at this restaurant is right up there with the best.

Even though it was a pleasant visit, i found it way too mediocre for a Michelin star restaurant - food lacking excitement, service not really attentive..
Should have gone to Eugene(better place to visit by a country mile)

I have been wanting to go to this restaurant for many months now so I’m glad I finally got to go there. The menu is very small with only 3 choices per course. But at least you know they will all execute them very well. I liked all of the choices they had on the menu and it was not easy to choose only one. Before serving you your first course, you will get a few free appetizers. All courses were excellent, the plate well-presented and the quantities perfect. Prices are very correct for the type of food you get (31€ for 3 courses). The selection of wines was interesting. I did not put 5 stars because for me service was way too long. Over 2h30 in the restaurant was (for my taste) too long. It’s good food ok but we are not in a starred restaurant either. The restaurant was not full and we were the first one there (and they only have like 10 tables). So apart from waiting too long, the meal was very good and prices very correct. Bathroom was clean.

I would say everything in L'Hibiscus is perfect. Place itself is charming. Menu is excellent. Quality of food is amazing as well as presentation originality. Quality - price relation is outstanding (2 full menus and a bottle of great wine was about 110€). And service is warm and friendly, with a perfect timing (you won't have an empty dish for long...).

Ok, there is a tiny but: lights were too bright. But it is good to enjoy the view of the meals and your partner. Bon app!
