Everything our group tried was outstanding. Truly fine dining, with delicious flavor combinations. Portions were small, but fairly filling - typical of gourmet dining. Beautiful presentation. Great spot for a formal dinner or a celebration.More

The restaurant is part of the Sofitel Hotel which has its own car park. When you arrive at the hotel main entrance, they will park the car for you.

Description
Named in retrospect and translated as the "Beautiful Era", our inspiration for this restaurant emerged from the period in European social history during the late 19th century that lasted until World War,It became recognised as the "golden age" - a time when new technologies and medical discoveries were found and when politics, art and literature underwent radical transformation. In Paris, restaurants achieved a new splendour and cachet for one to parade and where fashion began to move in seasonal cycles.In the culinary sense this period is enormously relevant to our philosophy of progression, optimism and very modern.We would like to think this beautiful era is strongly characterised by our cooking which is rarely serious yet rooted in classical French cuisine and have extended our repertoire to embrace some exciting 'outward looking' far eastern variations.
