I visited Le Foris yesterday, and was amazed.

We were in the gastronomic restaurant (2 etoiles, macarrons, or michelin stars), though there is the Terrace next door, which is a 1 etoile bistro of the same proprietors. We were told that in the winter time, the gastronomic restaurant moves into the Auberge (Inn) proper, which is on the other side of the building.

The setting is beautiful, the sun was setting over the Jura mountains in the distance, with lake Geneva / Leman below us.
The service was impeccable, our 3 servers were very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable about our food, and wine. I should also mention that I was impressed with their patience, as they were very courteous to some rich tourists who were sat at the table next to us, who were quite rude to the staff in the location of their table, and who drank "soda" with their gastronomic meal!!! To me this is a crime!
We were also visited by Mr Legras, who was very friendly, and who we think has a strong link to Noirmoutier / le Vendeé for some reason! ;)
Our meal (menu plaisir) was outstanding, with lots of surprises. Highlights were the Iberico Pork and the King Crab. If anything, a constructive criticism would be to use less gelatin in the sweet recipes, as it was noticeable. The presentation and style was exemplary.
Our server had recommended a different wine to accompany the different dishes, at my request, and she did a fine job. The Riesling from Neuchatel was a delight with the desserts.

Highly recommended, and can't wait to return. Thank you to our friends for giving us this experience to us as a thank you present.
