As a relatively new restaurant in the region, this is already getting some great feedback and reviews that might not appear here. The cuisine is some of the best in the region, but not quite the best. The chef is a very pleasant and approachable artisan who interacts with his diners frequently to ensure that they are enjoying their meal and getting what they want. On arrival to the restaurant we were greeted very pleasantly by a very professional staff. The ambiance of the restaurant is very modern within the setting of an old Chateau, maybe a little too modern, but that is up to each person's individual taste. Various options of degustation are available and we opted for the highest level one which included a 5 course dinner, wines, coffee. My wife had previously called when booking to notify the restaurant that she was vegetarian and was it possible to cook something for her in the restaurant without too much trouble. We were assured it was. However, whether it was the case or not, it did seem that the message was only being conveyed to the chef at the time we arrived and reconfirmed that my wife was vegetarian. It was nice of the chef to come out and discuss options with my wife, who would leave it up to him to design a menu for her. However, it really left the vegetarian option to be a mix of the vegetables that were provided with the main meat courses and not as imaginative as we would have hoped or have seen from other gastronomic restaurants. While my wife was not as impressed with the options she had, my meal was quite the opposite, but it definitely seems that this chef has a specialty with fish as I found the two fish dishes of exceptional quality, presentation and imagination in the mix of ingredients. The main meat course was very well done, but did not shine as much as the fish. Desert was well done as well. If I could give it a 4.5 then I would as the only reason it did not get a 5 is simply because of the vegetarian not being at the same level of imagination as the meat courses. We will return that is for sure when we have another opportunity.
