There's a lot I love and hate about French cuisine and it's all here. Fabulous quality local ingredients cooked beautifully. Wild boar, local goats cheeses, fantastic wines and then on the down side, those tiny pre-starters and in-between course nibbles that are unnecessary, slimy and foaming. The whole La Gourmandine experience is fantastic but I can't give it five stars as it's just not entirely right for me. I don't understand why they take the wine away and keep it on a table across the room until the waiter (he's part-owner, Maitre'D, super-pro restauranteur and thoroughly good chap in reality) deems that you are ready for another dribble of France's finest. Monday nights are a bistro menu and very different from the rest of the week. It's quirky, they have fantastic ingredients, the full fine dining experience and the building is enchanting. My 4-stars is more like a 4.5 in reality - I'm being a very harsh reviewer giving a 4.
