Started our evening in the garden with Badinguet Coctail, after were escorted to our table inside the restaurant. We have opted for the Palais Enchante menu with 6 courses plus the amuse bouche and petit four.
Caviar, palace potato, half lobster, pigeon, beef, all prepared to perfection, plated beautifully. Remarkable cheese selection and souffle with berries and verbena ice cream to finish the evening off. We are really grateful that we had the chance to taste the food of this remarkable gentleman. No wine pairing is available but the sommelier is helpful with his suggestions to compliment each course.
