The missus took me for my birthday as she was looking for a fine dining restaurant knowing that we had already been to the Fat Duck, the Waterside Inn, Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons, etc.
She found this restaurant here on Tripadvisor but was told by a friend of hers that she'd heard it was overrated and probably over-the-top. You know, the kind of pretentious place that would overcharge for a drop of sauce and a blade of grass.
I don't know where this is coming from as we were very far from it.
We went for the tasting menu with the matching wine selection.
We could talk about these little imperfections (sorry but the English red wine wasn't the best match for the main course) but that would be focusing on tiny details compared to what was a very good surprise and a wonderful experience. We'll definitely bring the in-laws who are experienced foodies as I'm sure they'll love it.
I'm not so much into white wines but I must say each of them were amazing and the perfect combination with the corresponding dish. Do go for it, you won't regret it !
If you want to rediscover the proper taste of ingredients (such a concentrate of flavours in that chicken is simply unbelievable, those strawberries
I'd like to highlight the work of our Maître D who was very accommodating, and offered the best advice: listen to her she does know about wines and whiskies.
I definitely recommend them (and I'm so happy that they're just 15 min from home!!!)
