We ate on Good Friday evening.
Firstly, theres only about 12 tables, so you must book well in advance.
Secondly, there was no real choice of menu, everything is set. 5 courses were £68euros per person, or you could have the tasting menu, which I think was 9 courses. This suited us, but there didnt seem to be any other choice. Not sure if the menu is more varied at other times, but it may not suit people who are particularly fussy about certain foods (as most of our friends are).
You must have an aperitif, in order to be served the 'nibbles' that go with it to start. The meringue straw was very unusual and worth a try.
We were then served an amuse bouche, which was like a very sweet yorkshire pudding. Very nice.
Then 2 different courses of fish. I have never tasted fish so perfectly cooked.
Then a course of beef, again perfectly cooked (dont go if you prefer charred remains !).
We asked for wine recommendations which were a bit different from the norm, and were pleased with what was provided.
The ingredients and flavours and service were all exceptional.
Our only concern, was that there was a baby of about 9 months on the table next to us. I know the French have a different approach, but when youre buying an expensive meal, I prefer not to have to enjoy other peoples children. However, I have to say that luckily the child was exceptionally well behaved throughout the meal.
We really enjoyed our visit, and although expensive, we thought we gained value for money. Would certainly love a return visit.
