While the cost is a bit less than Gordon Ramsey it is still a bit much for what you get. The service was pretty good, as was the food and portion sizes. The single most remarkable element was the end of the dinner. We waited for 35 minutes from the clearing of the last course until I finally went to collect the check. Our waiter was busy with a very large table, but there were other people who could have assisted him. I saw people seated in the other half of the restaurant who received their dessert, finished it, chatted for a bit, got their check and left while we waited with an empty table and empty glasses. The "bed" of spinach upon which rested the fish was a Hugh Hefner sized bed. I guess that helped to offset the very small portion?

The restaurant is formal yet somehow relaxed. The staff are really helpful and friendly. The vodka martinis were possibly the best/strongest I have encountered. The lamb for sharing was delicious and the waiter was only to happy to substitute the beans for potatoes. A thoroughly enjoyable dinner. Thank you

I was staying at the Hotel. We opted for the formula hors d'oeuvres and main for 59.€. We had marinated tuna (very good) and foie gras, then jarret de veau and crevettes. Food was okay but not mouth watering. Had a very good and reasonably priced bio dynamic Riesling. On the down side the room acoustics are appalling; we couldn't hear the waiter or each other. I also disliked the absence of proper table linen. This is not a restaurant you feel like you should return

Promptly seated at a very comfortable table. Started by ordering a nice bottle of wine. My wife's starter, burrata & garden fresh tomatoes. Mine, chilled tomato soup. Both excellent choices. Our main dish was Scottish salmon on a bed of spinach sitting in a sauce so flavorful I soaked it up with bread. Ended our meal with the lovely complementary macaroons. Oh wow!

Excellent service! Friendly wait staff. We'll be back.

Thank JoeNH

Wanted to celebrate the anniversary of my daughter, which was nicely and discretely done at the end of the dinner.
Prefer to book before dawn time so you could enjoy the sunset over the Versailles palace grounds
