The choice between two menues for 85 euros full table is difficult because all the items sounds intriguing. While not cheap at 85 the price is reasonable with regard to the quality of ingredients and the elaborate preparation. Clearly you feel the japanese chef in the quality and the love to detail and perfect presentation, ozkarazama! The only thing that... More

We dropped by on the off chance as we didn't have a booking and luckily they had a no show, it is in a place where you wouldn't expect it to be and it is a total hidden gem. We speak no French and they spoke some English but we managed to get by, we had the tasting menu which... More

Delicious food, artistically presented in a nice combination of shapes and colors, which explodes in mouth in a fantastic mix of flavors and tastes. Great wine list and great advice to make a choice.

In the evening, there is only the Menu Surprise, which my wife is not keen on, but luckily everything suited her very well. The food is clearly very freshly cooked, with a slight Asian twist. The bits and pieces that came before and during the meal were particularly tasty. Sophisticated, beautiful food, that tasted really good.

Although only a family of four, we have four different eating preferences, one who eats anything, one vegetarian, one who doesn't eat fish and one who doesn't eat meat. Was this a problem. Not at all. We had a wonderful meal, sitting in the courtyard and served by Andrea the most charming of waitresses. The wine ladder served with meal... More

We went there on a Wednesday night in July and the restaurant was full. We manage to get a table for 9 and service was perfect. Food was fabulous and even the 3 children (from 11 to 15) were amazed. Nice wine list too. We were sitting in a lovely garden. Definitely worth a visit!

This was my 2nd visit in as many years with friends and family and the food and wine improved to even greater heights. The chef Massa is a genius. The wine list is perfect. You cannot go wrong. If you selected the tasting menu be prepared for at least 16 excellent courses. Bon appétit

Wonderful experience from start to finish. Chic modern decor and friendly but impeccable service. Five course tasting menu was a real tour de force in innovative high-end French cooking. Each course was beautifully plated and intelligently, innovatively prepared. A wonderful amuse bouche of briny watercress soup, lovely foie gras with figs, perfect fish and the most tender veal loin I've... More

This restaurant is just perfect. Every course, and there were a lot of them, was a taste sensation! Highly recommended if you're in Valence! 5 Stars.

This was the best meals we had in France while touring the country over the course of 1 month. I've been to 12 Michelin starred restaurants, including a 3 star, this was the best. The food is creative while not overly molecular, not trendy for the sake of cutting edge, it's delicate without being over done. The fish was amazingly... More
