Emmanuel Renaut is simply the best. His creativity and presentations are outstanding. The first time we were there, we were suprised he only had 2 Michelin stars - within 2 weeks he was awarded his 3rd - and so well deserved. Our return visit proved to be equally outstanding. Il vous fait rever et voyager à travers ses plats.
I certainly look forward to my next visit. Thank you so very much !

We drove from Lyon for lunch on the recommendation of friends who had raved about how wonderful the restaurant is. The whole experience was worth the 3 hour drive and we loved the environment, service and the heavenly food. Everything was so well thought out and connected to the beautiful nature surrounding the restaurant. We opted for the 10 course degustation and every course was delicious and presented beautifully. The staff were friendly and were able to describe the food in English which was much appreciated. The mushrooms, slice of frozen springwater, lamb and desserts were highlights and the petit fours were the best I have every had. We had several matched wines - not the full suite as I was driving - but the sommeliers certainly knew their stuff! This was our first Michelin star experience and we were thrilled with it! The cheese trolley also deserves a mention - exquisite! Thanks for such a memorable lunch experience.

A calm and almost serene atmosphere in the restaurant belied the quality of the food that emerged from the kitchen. Everything tasted superb, and was presented by exceptionally knowledgable but friendly staff. The style and quality is undeniable. Well worth a visit.

As an experienced gourmet traveller, I have high expectations when it come to a 3 Michelin-star restaurant, and can say that Emmanuel Renaut is up there with the very best world class chefs.
I booked an "Immersion" for two, which involves spending the morning in the kitchen with the brigade so as to have a backstage experience, before enjoying a wonderful lunch menu.
The atmosphere in the kitchen is friendly and everyone is very concentrated on his/her duty. The brigade (around 20 persons) is international and young.
They were happy to explain what they were preparing (some of them really enjoyed showing their skills), and when the "coup de feu" started, we were amazed at how calm it was in the kitchen. Emmanuel Renaut gives precise orders, without raising his voice, a rare quality in this trade.
The meal afterwards was heavenly and surprising, my tastebuds were spoilt. It's also great to eat what you've seen prepared, and even helped to prepare.
We left at 1600, so if you chose the "Immersion" (250 euros), you have to count the whole day in this wonderful place.
I will definitely return.

We were looking so forward to our dinner here. Overall, it was a big disappointment -- particularly compared to previous times we had eaten here.

Are they getting too comfortable with their Michelin rating? Or are standards more relaxed during low season? Surely a better effort could be made on both the food and services fronts...

We had a few questions about ordering and the junior waiter was not at all knowledgeable. His explanation was to re articulate what the menu said. We kept waiting for the senior waiter to come over but no such luck...

Once seated at the table we ordered 2 plates to share as starters from the a la carte menu -- 3 types of mushrooms and the truffle, potato roblechon--and a main course each. The waiter tried to explain that it was not possible to share the mushroom and suggested an egg and mushroom dish instead. As such in the end both appetizers shared-- egg champignon and roblechon dish-- had a similar cream base, and so did my main course-- les ecrevisses!

So not only could the waiters not properly explain much about the ingredients and general preparation of dishes, but they could not even guide guests on appropriate dish complementarity.
