This chef knows how to bring out the best in all his ingredients, including truffles. No superficial dazzle or contrived experimenting here--just mouth-watering excellence and finesse across the board. One of the best meals I've ever had!

We had an excellent dinner here a couple of months ago. Back again 21/01/2016 for bistro menu lunch which was excellent value. Lunched in dining room this time which was so cosy. Attentive staff. Bistro lunch menu of really high standard. Book well in advance for dinner- we have often failed to find availability in the past.

Had dinner here during our stay which was just perfect. We had the five course dinner with a selection of wines. Both the food and the wine was some of the best me and my husband has ever had! I would really recommend staying here as well as eating here. I do recommend also having the breakfast buffet which was... More

Excellent meal with an array of different dishes all well presented but not in a pretentious way like many one star Michelin restaurant tend to be! It was a real delight for the palate and the eyes. The dishes kept on coming, all distinct and all amazing. The service was impeccable and not overwhelming, just perfect. The chef came to... More

Part of the hotel chateaux group it lived up to the reputation of the other hotels of the group we have visited, superb. The garden is delightful, the service immaculate and the food delightful. The location could not be bettered and parking for the hotel... More

If you are staying at the hotel - or merely visiting or passing through Grignan - you really should try this restaurant. They serve a first class bistro-style lunch most days - but their dinners every night are gastronomique and to die for!

If you're in the area and want to enjoy a high quality French dinner, that's one of the the place to go. Friendly people and fantastic Mediterranean garden where you get serve. Not cheat though but in line with what you usually pay for this level of restaurant.

We went there with my wife and our four kids. The setting in the garden was fantastic under a tree, the service formal but friendly. Apart for our little one we all had the full degustation menu, declined around a summer theme, which was a delight. The tomato the old way, the lobster and the veal were just out of... More

Delicious food, lovely setting, superb service. The food was basically excellent, though the chef tended to add too much unnecessary flavour to each dish, losing the original. (The 'grilled sardines' did not taste of sardines). However, we found his Roquefort icecream great fun.

For a Michelin 1*, we expected more. [This observation based on more than a week of dining at 1 and 2 * restaurants. Not only were the servings miniscule, they simply did not taste right. There appeared to be too much emphasis of the display of the food, but not enough on the flavor. For example, the grilled sardines [of... More
