My wife and I enjoyed a beautiful dinner at the restaurant. Reception was low key, no fuss and kind, and we we seated at a nice table in the large room with good light and a view into the open garden. The service was good, with well trained and polite staff. We were more than pleasantly surprised by the food. We opted for the 7 course surprise menu with wine, and the kitchen put out 9 dishes plus amuses that were all very well done and enjoyable. The ingredients are classic (foie gras, lobster, rabbit) but the preparation and presentation were not stuffy but rather playful and inspired. An Asian fusion clam soup, lobster three ways, rabbit 4 ways, and a beautifully light chèvre with warm yogurt soup were very nice. I am not much of a desert eater, but the two deserts were light and with very fresh ingredients. The mint sorbet was so fresh it still tasted like the mint came straight from the garden (which it in fact did). Overall, we left very satisfied - with the food, ambience, service and price quality balance.
