Service and food were excellent. Well-priced for the quality of food and service--go for the prix fixe menus. Lovely dining room, set in a beautiful chateau hotel.

Hotel is beautiful but restaurant does not meet expectations in service and quality Service failed to provide additional water & bread to our 3 tables. Orders mixed up and one table left after 3 & 1/2 hours waiting for food.

My wife took me here as a treat. Thank you sweetheart. Beautiful place and lovely gardens. The quaint way that the person they think will be paying gets a menu with the prices in and the others at the table do not! They assumed I...More

A great experience: top food quality, a comprehensive wine list and attentive staff, all contributed to a dinner to remember. The red mullet and the pigeon were absolutely amazing. Thank you for the great experience!

From the cocktails to each dish. And the view over the park is just unique. Could it be any better ?!

Unless I lost count, the 55 Euro menu is 8 courses. Each is special; tastes that thrill, presentations that are beautiful, but not contrived. Fresh-from-the-garden-and-the-countryside. And the camembert soaked in 10 year old Calvados!! We loved all three of our dinners.

Business casual seemed to be the norm. No specific dress code though. Jeans and causal shirts were worn by several diners. Enjoy!
