We went as a party of four and because of trouble on the Metro I arrived an hour late. This did not phase the team in the restaurant who were charming, welcoming and did everything to ease the stress I was feeling. After an aperitif, the menu was explained to us as a surprise menu based on fresh daily ingredients and a suggestion of an additional dish with Caviar de Sologne which we declined. At no stage were we pushed to having something extra or more pricey. The different dishes arrived at a pace which allowed us to savour each dish and not feel rushed but also not to have to wait 30 minutes between each course. We hardly were aware of the time passing! Each dish was announced and described without any pretension and all were perfectly cooked and pleasing to the eye. I did not count the number of courses but there were at least 5 + 2 dessert courses. The only one that did not convince me was the first - oysters with shavings of foie gras. But the rest were outstanding, with very original combinations of flavours and textures. My test of a good chef is their ability to cook fish and I was not disappointed - the turbot was succulent and flaked apart on the fork, as it should. Our guests were in heaven and we were very pleased with the evening. We will definitely go there again.
Just a point, unless you are very lucky on the day, you need to book weeks in advance for this tiny restaurant. It only seats about 20 people, so it is full all the time. Also it is in a fairly nondescript shopping passage and you could walk past and not notice it at all. I congratulate the wait staff who very deftly carry 4 plates at a time down the extremely narrow winding staircase, a real skill.
