We go twice a year to Regis & Jacques Marcon and from all the top French restaurants we have visited this is standing out by far for the fantastic setting, extremely creative food (that changes according to the season and every year-on-year), one of the best service in Europe and a fantastic wine list. I see it well-ahead of other places in the west such as Pic, G. Blanc or Chabran. We usually stay in the hotel "les Clos des Cimes" where the hotel is organizing a babysitter for our two kids and a limousine service to the restaurant which is 5 minutes away. This time the spring menu (go for the big one!) was starting with a great lobster, followed by fois gras and the most outstanding combination of asparagus and morels. Main cause was a great "cochon de lait" - you then have the choice between different cheese options and desserts - go for the mushrooms with banana - this is the most amazing taste possible. The wine list is extensive and offers good options with reasonable prices for such a restaurant. The sommelier is helpful and adapts to you. We have already book the table in October and look forward to the next experience!

One hears great reviews of this 'mecca to food'. We booked our stay & our meal & hoped that we would not be disappointed. We were not ! Our aperitifs were served with a selection of very tasty canapés.

My lobster with risotto, & lobster claws in a bouillon were delightful. The saddle of lamb has been cooked in a bread crust which enclosed the herbs. The crust and herbs were removed at the table & the lamb tender & very tasty.

This meal was pure art, theatre & a great experience. Our waiter made the experience even better by being very relaxed. We stayed overnight & even had room for a delicious breakfast.

Very very nice restaurant - amazing location, we recommend that you book a table next to the window to appreciate the view of the mountains (if you go there at lunch time especially). This time we went there for lunch (we've been there once before for dinner.. ) - staff is very nice and helpfull, explaining each dishes carefully. Unbelievable food, very pretty to see and delicious to eat. Haute cuisine at it is best ! - Regis Marcon the chef came to the room and spoke to the guests - he was very nice and friendly.
Yes - it is expensive but it is an experience for all your senses! Highly recommended as a special treat... a special moment to share. We are looking forward to go back!

Beautiful setting with plate glass windows affording great views of the pine forests as the sun sets. The menu is inventive and based on ingredients of the local area, including flowers, mushrooms and more. Great to see Regis doing a tour of the restaurant to welcome guests at the beginning of the evening and to say goodbye at the end. The food was copious and, in general, perfectly executed. The only let down was the Zander with Bulgur and Mussels which was surprisingly bland. Everything else was beautifully presented and flavourful. Service is what you'd expect at a 3* restaurant -formal but friendly.

In do not have the words to express what a great experience dining at this restaurant is. The food, the wine, and the surroundings are exceptional. The service is impeccable, but is welcoming and very human.

This restaurant captures the spirit of surrouding countryside.
