We booked this as part of a private tour and got excellent value of €50 per person for 4 courses and wine and champagne included. The food was delicious. Service was great and portion sizes were surprisingly big for what you might normally expect from a Michelin starred restaurant.

Spent my birthday meal here and I'm very glad I did. Very nice ambiance, service was excellent and the food was 'très délicieux'. My husband and I had the Menu dégustation, we enjoyed every bit of it most especially the scallops and the salmon dish. We have dined in quite a number of Michelin starred restaurants and this is the... More

The restaurant has just had a major refurbishment and the decor is absolutely stunning. It has a modern trend but still retains its traditional charm with flowered patterned plates. All tables are spacious and immaculately and beautifully laid. It overlooks the leafy garden giving wonderful views. We all chose the fish/seafood tasting menu and all 3 couples called the food...

The restaurant was recommended by a friend who had previously eaten there. He commented that the wine list was excellent with a wide selection of champagnes. That was true. However the service was lacking. We had to constantly ask the servers to refill our water glasses and our champagne glasses. There was no attention to detail by them. The food... More

Decor was perhaps supposed to be distressed French but came across as old and decrepit. The service was old French, which to me is somewhat snotty and very slow. As we were the only people there when we arrived, it took an effort to ignore us. Food was average. I would definitely not return as there was nothing memorable, barely... More

Highly recommend this restaurant. We celebrated my friend's 40th birthday with 23 guests including 4 kids, and food and service was excellent. All guests were delighted and happy by the menu. Chef did a special attention to one of the guest allergic to peanuts. Sommelier was really helpful, knows perfectly his wines and his selection for our menu was a... More

We did the set menu. Mostly seafood. The melon with lobster was outstanding. I tried pigeon for the first time. We had a white and a red Crozes-Hermitage, which we were surprised to find the blanc, that went well with the meal. The sommelier was friendly. I think a table looking towards the garden would be preferable.

Week-end in Champagne and a stop there for Easter lunch. We were seeking a traditional, old-fashioned 1 michelin star restaurant. This was a perfect option, or so it seemed. Overall mixed feelings. Very friendly staff, very knowledgable sommelier. The place is very 80s, needs a bit of refresh. But then, this is more a matter of tastes let's say... But... More

The food was good, but the service was lacking. We were seated quickly, but nobody came to serve us for atleast 15 minutes. The sommelier saved the day with his wine pairings, and the Champagne Rose was excellent. Decor is dated and we didn't feel special. Wouldn't rush back
