The next stop on last year’s alpine tour was dinner and a room at ⭐️⭐️⭐️ La Bouitte in Saint Martin de Belleville. Perfectly nice food, in beautiful surroundings. The room they gave me was apparently the chef René Meilleur’s bedroom as a boy, but I suspect they tell that to every guest in every room.
The food was nice, although I thought that maybe the more traditional style of René’s was perhaps fighting a little with the more modern desires of son Maxime. That’s just my opinion though. I also felt that the service was lacking a little both in warmth (compared with some of our recent meals at this level) and in actual competence, with the sommelier falling behind twice and needing prompting also. Wines were introduced with the briefest of descriptions so that he could go to spend more time with tables of locals. At least that is how it appeared from my perspective. Not somewhere that I would rush back to which is a shame as I very much enjoyed my first visit here a few years ago. Although that was for a Vega Sicilia wine event so wasn’t a typical experience.
