Hôtel Le Toiny's dramatic, tasteful, cliff-side dining porch showcases gastronomic art. Less stuffy than in the past, the food is notable for its innovation and extraordinary presentation, and the warm but consummately professional service sets a high standard. The menu changes frequently, but rare ingredients and unique preparations always delight: spaghetti with black truffles, tamarind-glazed duck breast, lamb filet with eggplant caviar, and chocolate soufflé for dessert. Tuesday is Fish Market Night, when you choose your own fish to be grilled, and Sunday (11–2) there's a €43 buffet brunch.

Our group of six chose Le Gaiac to celebrate a 10th wedding anniversary. The atmosphere is elegant and the staff very accomodating. However, after the first bite of the entrees, we all agreed that the food was horrendous. I could not tell what I was eating and my first reaction was how to get rid of it. Needless to say that for $1200 we were extremely disappointed in the meal.

Best meal on STB. The service was very good and the food was amazing. And, on top of that, the artistic presentation of the food was unbelieveable. I really didn't want to take that first bite of any course because the presentation was so beautiful.
