The restaurant Bord Eau at the Shangri La hotel is a very nice location if you can sit outside. Good service and good products. Although I'm not convinced the the "wild tarbot" was correct.

An excellent place for a romantic dinner if you are staying at the Shangri-La Hotel or just visiting. We had a very tasty foie gras starter and a good beef main course. The restaurant is beautiful and looks old school, opulent French.
