My fourth visit to Emmanuel Renaut’s 3* restaurant in Megève. He always delivers on food and service. Although I was not as blown away by last nights meal as I have been on previous visits, I shall still keep coming back. The rooms and individual chalets at the property are well worth staying in for the complete experience with a very good breakfast the following morning.
I went for the Winter Flavours Randonnée menu at 236€ for 9 dishes representing the season, preceeded by a selection of savoury canapés in mountain flavours. I also had a prestige wine pairing at 125€ for 2 whites, 1 red and 1 sweet wine. The Somm had to be encouraged to be a bit more generous with his pourings and also I had to suggest a couple of glasses inbetween as I ran dry often. As someone who is comfortable ploughing through a 10 glass pairing, this felt a little scant and annoyed me a little that I was doing the somm’s job. There were also no explanations for the wines other than what it said on the label. I always enjoy the somm explaining why they have chosen a particular wine to pair with a dish and what to expect from the wine in terms of flavour and nose. At a 2* or 3* I expect this so was very disapointed with the wine action last night.
