excellent in every respect.
Expensive - if you want.
Value for money? very subjective, but we think so.
Cuisine? - large and varied menus; large and varied wine list (majoring on France); fantastic ingredients expertly prepared.
Service? - expert, not fawning, not overbearing, on hand but unobtrusive: truly superb.
Atmosphere: - calm, quiet but not reverential
Location? - in the hotel (see other review), in woodland - note the front of the hotel is covered with Virginia creeper and hence with bees and some wasps. Bear it in mind :o)

Stayed hotel and had a dinner. Ordered set menu with was about 80 Euro. It was pricy for us but after all, it was worth it. From the appetizer to dessert, everything was so tasty and great presentation. Chef really does a great job here.

Had a lunch at HdL recently, before visiting Chaumont. I had extremely high expectations in light of the Michelin ranking (two stars + red forks), and they were exceeded. The food was simply superb; the four-course menu was imaginative, a true symphony of flavors -- there was not one wrong note in any single dish, not one flavor either missing or unnecessary. I was not alone in my praise -- it was the first time I could recall that my companion really enjoyed lamb (flavoring the second appetizer) and duck (in the first appetizer). The setting was lovely on the terrace. Two other families with well-behaved pre-teens were enjoying their time as well. The service is highly attentive. In all, the prices may be high, but IMO they reflect true value.
