The L'Excelsior is an enormous art nouveau restaurant near the railway station. We ate here a couple of years ago on a rainy mid-week evening in January and just managed to get a seat thanks to the efficiency of the Maitre d' who had complete control of the restaurant despite it being absolutely packed out. This time we booked via the website - again the restaurant was very busy with all the tables having reserved labels on them. We were seated by a pleasant efficient waitress and given the menus to browse over. One of the reasons for returning was that my wife wanted the lobster again as it was so good on our first visit, I ordered the fillet steak. The food arrived and it was as fantastically good as before - wonderful. We followed the mains with dessert, both having the millefeuille and finished off with coffee which came with a variety of sweet nibbles. The service was very good and it was wonderful to watch the way the Maitre d' set a table and topped up your wine glasses.
The L'Exclesior is not just a restaurant, it's an experience in itself - not cheap but well worth it!
