I took my fiancée here for valentine's day just because we liked the look of it when we'd walked past a few times. I was expecting it to be a nice place based on the reviews, but I didn't expect it to be as amazing as it was.
To start with the staff were really nice. They were very welcoming and smiley and helpful with explaining wine. Their wine menu was quite novel and nice, it was called a living menu which was actually a wall full of wine bottles that you walk up to and browse rather than looking at a piece of paper.
They had a special valentines day menu which was really cool because some dishes had been designed around sharing and a lot came decorated with flowers. A really nice touch.
The meal started with an oyster amuse bouche. Now, personally I am not a fan of oysters but this took me completely by surprise. It was actually chopped oysters that they'd added small amounts of herbs, lemon, rocket and fruit to. It was literally the first time I've enjoyed oysters. I was going to try it and then leave the rest to my fiancée but it was too good!
My main was a filet de boeuf, and it was probably the best steak I've had in my life. I don't know if they put a sauce on it that I couldn't see or if it was cooked on charcoals, but it had a smokey flavour I've never tasted before that was amazing, and it was so tender and warm the whole way through that they must have steak cooking down to a fine science. My fiancée had swordfish, and although I've never tried it before I suspect that this was also top of its game because it was just lightly seared, very tender with a great sauce and reminded me a bit of scallops.
The desert was a choice of either chocolate mousse cake or rose mousse. The chocolate cake was really good but the rose mousse was something special. Not too sugary, it had a light rose flavour and a mild sweetness. It was another thing that took me by surprise because I'm used to most deserts being too sweet.
Overall, I would say this was easily my best dining experience in France, and in the top few of my life.
