WHY GO? A classical purpose-built French restaurant overlooking the Ping River, this wood and glass venue is glittering with chandeliers, candles and silverware. A lovely place for romantic dining or an intimate celebration.
WHAT TO ORDER? Start with a perfectly-risen cheese souffle or the rich and aromatic black summer truffle soup served with oven-fresh warm buns. After cleasinsing your palate with a refreshing sorbet, move on to mains, which cover premium meats ranging from braised lamb shank and Japanese hida striploin to grilled kurobuta pork chops and roasted duck breast with strawberry wine sauce. For something lighter order pan-roasted snowfish served with tomato and butter sauce or the signature baked lobser with black spaghetti lobster sauce. Vibrant and full of colour and artistic flair, the focus is always on the hero of each dish, which is cooked to ordered perfection. Don't be shy about ending the meal on another souffle—choosing between chocolate, grand marnier or lime. For some real pomp though, try the famous crepe suzette, flambeed tableside and served with vanilla ice cream.
Drinks A great walk-in wine cellar with premium wines for those with deep pockets but also a solid selection of more affordable labels. There is a great post-prandial selection of cognacs as well as a charming list of old-fashioned cocktails.
