The exquisitely restored exterior houses a truly modern ambience. allow the smoky grey wood panelling to cocoon you in its smart interior, complemented with plush comfortable seating in gold velvet. The kitchen team is out to impress, offering a tasting menu or à la carte. ask the knowledgeable head waiter for wine pairing recommendations to accompany your choice.

Whet your appetite with a Gillardeau oyster served with elder flower and jalapeño or a pork sausage and jamon dashi tart from the canapés section. Fresh octopus topped with buffalo mozzarella, shiso and an umami Xo sauce will take you into the starters until you savour the cacio e pepe buckwheat tagliolini as a cheeky second. For mains enjoy the delicately prepared red snapper with coco de paimpol beans, courgettes and a clam sauce.
