The decor is simple but elegant, soothing light wood with no tablecloths or place mats but with interesting and effective lighting, and the tables are not densely packed. We had a lovely round table for six and were completely comfortable, ready and able to relax and enjoy the six-course menu.
The food was creative, sophisticated and beautiful. Portions were small enough that you could eat everything without feeling stuffed but large enough to get a substantial experience of each course.
We started with a mini "croque-monsieur" with a layer of puréed basil . . .
|Beef and langoustine carpaccio|
|Mixed vegetable salad|
