The hotel location, ambience and rooms have a great reputation and promised much. They certainly didn't let us down. More disappointing was the famed restraunt. We had planned a special meal with friends flying in from the UK. Despite 3 months notice that we had a vegetarian in our party, and 3 separate reminders to the concierge, meat based appetizers were served. Main course for our friend was boiled vegetables. The sommelier lacked a basic understanding of his own wine list and was unable to couple the service of the white wine with entree. Bottles listed on the wine list were not available in the cellar. Service marginally improved after a complaint to the hotel management, but was generally met with gallic indifference.
In the past one would certainly take a vegetarian option as difficult in the south of France, but not at an expensive high class restaurant , and in particular for a cheese/egg eating vegetarian.
Much was also made of their status as a leading small hotel of the world. This does not include the manager sending a reply to an email request. I'm extremely glad that I didn't bring clients to this famed dining establishment and I certainly wouldn't recommend it.More
