My son had wanted to visit Restaurant Sat Bains for some time, so for a 30th birthday surprise his girlfriend booked the Chef's table for lunch and I'm so glad she did. The whole experience was wonderful from start to finish. We were given a warm welcome by Laurent, and as three of our party were not red wine drinkers he selected some lovely fragrant whites to enjoy with our seven course lunch. Each course was an absolute treat for the taste buds and it was interesting to hear from each chef the techniques and ingredients used to achieve the amazing results. Sat himself came and chatted to us form time to time throughout the meal and, again, made us feel very welcome. My daughter had previously met Amanda, Sat's wife and business partner, and she took the time to come and have a word with her which was lovely. One of the young chefs showed us round the kitchens, gardens, greenhouses and the rest of the restaurant and it was interesting to see the team at work. All in all a great experience in every way. Not pretentious at all and very relaxing. Do yourself a favour and book a table at Restaurant Sat Bains.

This was our third visit to Restaurant Sat Bains. Yet again we were blown away by the food and service - sublime. We had lunch at the kitchen table where we were able to integrate with the very informative and enthusiastic chefs. Every element of our visit was perfect. A truly memorable experience.
Thanks to Sat and the team.

Having discussed the possibility of eating at this restaurant for some time, we at last decided to take my son there to celebrate his birthday.... It was an experience we will remember for some considerable time ! We chose the 11 course starter menu together with wines coupled to each course and for 3 hours we had fine dining with acceptable (but not fine) wines - we all enjoyed the food immensely. Things we would not normally eat were presented in a totally different form and were quickly digested ! The question to ask is would we go there again - the answer has to be No.. and the reason ? £666 for dinner for 3 in my book is somewhat over the top... I can eat Michelin in Paris for far less. But the fact was that the 'discretionary' tip (£74 !) was included automatically in the bill was, let me say, disappointing... If you have deep pockets then this is the place, but if you scour the brochures you may well get to Paris and have a meal and still come away with money in your pocket !

We visited here Friday night with close friends. We have been fortunate to have eaten in a number of Michelin starred restaurants, so were excited at what the evening would have install. We opted for the 7 course tester menu and each dish was divine with amazing flavours and real innovation. Some of the highlights, and these descriptions wont do them justice, were the Scallop, the Oxtail, the Anjou pigeon, Lenton Lane and the Green Thai Curry Candy floss.
At the end of the meal we were then invited into the kitchen to meet the great man himself. Thanks very much Sat, we had a fab evening!

We have over the years been to this restaurant many times and had some absolutely dazzling experiences.

Yes we had a great time and enjoyed our evening but a lot of that was due to the company and unfortunately not because of the food being mind blowing which is usually has been.
