My husband and I ate lunch here on our honeymoon and it was an absolutley unforgettable experience. The hotel and the restaurant are amazing, the decor is grand and luxurious and surroundings elegant.
The lunch menu was a great way for us to try out the restaurant (around 100 Euro/person), when we wouldn't usually be able to afford the dinner menu.
The set lunch menu consisted of 2 choices for each course, with 3 courses in total, it would be nicer if there was 3 choices as you are restricted if there is one choice that you don't like. I don't think the set lunch menu is displayed on the website but we emailed the restaurant and recieved confirmation that it was available. The food was excellently thought out and served immaculately. We had ordered the 3 course lunch menu howeve the meal consisted of amuse Bouche, Pre Starters, Bread, Starter, Main Course, Cheese Course (15 euro extra), dessert and then the sweet trolley and coffee!
The somellier helped us choose a reasonably priced bottle of wine to go with our meal, without any embarassment or fussing.
The waiters deserve an extra special mention, they were reserved and serious and proffessional without being stand-offish or stuck up, and even engaged in a little conversation at appropriate times. I even recieved a little stool for my handbag to sit on! Our waiter had an appreciation that we were not regulars to this type of restaurant and that the visit to Le Cinq was a special occasion visit and made us feel absolutly comfortable throughout the meal (some rather rich and arrogant diners on the next table troffed their way through a 3 michelin star meal whilst talking on their mobile phones throughout!!!)
When we mentioned we were on honeymoon we were presented with a small gift of a book with the best restaurants around the world and some sweets to take home with us 'for emergencies'!! We even got to meet the chef towards the end of the service!!
The bill at the end of the meal wasn't huge either and we were in the restaurant for over 3 hours in all. I would definatly book a meal like this again for a special occasion, a real memory maker place.
