Worth the 35 minute drive from Dijon.
From the aperitifs to the pet-it fours, each dish is a masterpiece. The chef comes out and personally welcomes you and invites you for a tour of his kitchen before the staff take you into a spacious and light dining room which overlooks the pool and gardens. We chose the option of allowing the chef to choose our meals, which meant each dish was a surprise. Starting with a passionfruit and apricot chutney covered foie gras,which was superb, we then had a carpaccio of languostine which had the most stunning flavours and the finely diced ginger and carrot on top gave it a lovely 'tang'. Our next dish was lobster in a capuccino - served in a see through bowl for effect. Amazing!
Then we moved onto the mains. A local fish dish was next to arrive, which was also superb. The chicken and mushroom dish, is unlike any other chicken and mushroom dish I have ever had before. Painstakingly constructed, and the tastes did not disappoint.
Cheese! Local cheeses for you to choose from a large selection, although at this point I had very little room.
Desert was possibly one of the most amazing things I have ever seen, or tasted. A chocolate cricket ball is presented in a large bowl and I must confess to having a 'How am I going to eat this without it flying across the large table?' moment in my mind. Without giving away the surprise, this wasn't a problem.
Some of us at the table had coffee and others mint tea (local fresh mint) and there was even a surprise with the petit fours.
We chose our own wines to accompany the meal and whiled away around 4-5 hours. The staff were lovely and at no stage did we feel that we had overstayed our welcome. At the end of the meal the chef returned for an encore and joined us in the garden for some photos.
Truly one of the most enjoyable food experiences I have ever had.
