My partner and I come to this restaurant quite regularly as it is such a pleasure to dine here. Olivier Rollinger has a passion for combining interesting flavours, using local products. This time, we came here with friends and tried the 'Wind and the Moon' degustation menu.
It was magical. Lobster served with tonka bean, John Dory with a lightly-spiced sauce that complemented it perfectly. Our only disappointment was the sea bass, which was overpowered by the seasoning (I had a similar disappointment on an earlier visit when I ordered sea bass prepared with elderflower - they just didn't go together. I have come to the conclusion that Rollinger just can't help interfering with the delicate flavour of sea bass).
The cheeses were delicious. Each was served with its own accompaniment that enhanced its unique flavour.
And then there was the dessert trolley,.. the pièce de résistance, which was hard to resist at all! The exquisitely-arranged selection of sweets is a feast for the eyes. The pineapple salad with hibiscus sorbet was sublime. All of my party were most content with their choices.
The restaurant itself is situated in Chateau Richeux, a small chateau overlooking the Bay of Mont St Michel. The staff are friendly, professional and smartly-attired but never snooty. Overall, a true delight.
