This restaurant offers French cuisine with an Asian twist in a relaxed atmosphere with unparalleled service. Many of the staff speak English and are willing to advise you on your selection. Should you have any dietary requirements they will be accommodated. Reservations are required.

Team adapted to vegetarian request along with assorted wines to go with the food. Both meat and veggie menus were excellent. We chose gastronome menu with the accompanying wines which was a very good deal. Only suggestion to team would be to ask if preference for red or white wines when selecting wines to go with menu. Definitely a place... More

This was a splurge on our trip - a Sunday lunch for a birthday celebration after a walk through the chateaux and gardens of Fontainebleau. Everything was perfect, and the food was glorious (still thinking about that cauliflower and mussels) but we particularly liked the friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient staff. When we confided mid-meal we were celebrating a birthday, desserts... More

The standard of food in France is superb so a Michelin star restaurant has a lot to live up to for me this was short of the mark. It was very good but I have had far better for far less money in France.

Liked the food and the ambience of this Michelin-starred restaurant in the middle of Fontainebleau. The prices are quite high, but are reasonable given the quality of food and service.

This was a splurge for us as it was very pricey. It was worth it. The speciality egg dish, my husband still dreams of it. From the stark white decor, to the staff, all is high quality. Beautiful and yummy. They do up sell a bit on the wines and champagnes, but hey. it was a splurge. The chef came... More
