Beautiful place! Sat on the stunning terrace with very attentive staff especially Isla she was fabulous and had perfect English which was great for me. It is definitely a fancy affair, which was nice for a one off during my trip. Each course was delicious,...the wines also. The fish main and the strawberry and b Lisa ck olive dessert were game changers. Highly recommend if you are feeling flush, the bill was €120 for one person on the lunch menu.More

We were a group on Chefs Table apprehensive about what to expect as our friends and their friends in Beziers had never heard of it.We were quickly reassured by meeting the maitre d’ who had spent 3 years in the Connaught and the chef who...worked in the Dorchester. I have to add that it is run by the family and Dad is a Michelin starred chef and Mum delightfully gave us all a lovely glass of champagne at the end of the meal We were not disappointed.Make sure if you are dining you have had a light lunch. There were so many highlights but the best dish I have ever had was a single oyster in oyster jelly and oyster carpaccio.More

L’Alter Native is the new second restaurant, fish-centric, of the great chef Gilles Goujon. Quality and experience worthy of his name. I share three memorable dishes: Carpaccio of mullet: fish sliced paper-thin, marinated in a sauce of tomato, lemon, nut oil, and miso, topped with...fish eggs. Galette estofinade: a little cake of potato, smoked cod, and trout, topped with caviar and surrounded by fish-stock foam. Pavé de maigre roti: a thick-cut steak of baked corvina fish, topped with a brown fish-bone reduction sauce. Oh, and dessert.More
