I have an interesting story to tell ... my wife and I had just come into CDG after a long overnight flight from the United States and were driving to a wedding in the town on Detilly, not very far from La Giraudiere. After driving around lost for over an hour we ended up at La Giraudiere. It was the dinner hour and there were many diners seated in the courtyard which had been laid out in perfect french country fashion. The owner came out to greet us and assuming that we had come for dinner began to direct us to a table. We speak *no* French but fortunately the owner spoke excellent English. We explained our predicament and described the place we needed to go to for the wedding. He knew exactly where it was. Despite the busy dinner hour, he insisted that he drive in his car to our destination so that we could follow him. When we protested that we would be fine with some detailed written directions, he insisted that it would be impossible for us to navigate "the labrinthe" as he put it! So he told one of his staff to take over and pulled out his car from the garage and off he went with us in close chase through the labrinthe! Five minutes later we were at the wedding and, yes, it was a labrinthe.
Now in case you are wondering about food ... we had a quick look at some of the dishes that were being served (it was in the open courtyard after all, in clear view of all) and it all looked delicious and beautiful ... almost like a work of art, just what you would expect in France. The setting of the place is charming and delightful. And with an owner like the one we encountered, how can the food and service not be good ? Give them a try !
