Only came for dinner--chose the Simply Supper option (available between 6:30-7:30 PM), which was a very good value. While enjoying our cocktails in the lounge, we felt like we were visiting relatives at their country house. The chef sent a biteful of creamy chicken liver pate and a mushroom croquette. The l'amuse bouche was a thimbleful of soup that had very subtle flavorings--Thai/coconut milk based, perhaps. Started with an excellent mushroom risotto and smoked salmon. Being from the U.S., my daughter and I really appreciated the bread. Each type had a thin, crispy crust, not the dense too-chewy bread we encounter back home. I had the sea bream and daughter had smoked pork for our main dishes. For dessert, my Cointreau souffle with Triple Sec sorbet was heavenly and my daughter enjoyed the cheese trolley, which had many choices, all from artisinal farms in the UK and France. Our servers were young, and French or German. They were delightful. The sommelier was off the night we were there, but a young man made several recommendations and they were spot-on. We never would have chosen Portugese wine, but we were very pleased.
The dining room decor was quite dowdy. Maybe so the food would take the spotlight? It was the only disappointment.
