Christian Étienne Review

Stellar period decor in a renovated 12th-century mansion makes for an impressive backdrop to innovative and delicious cuisine. Try the pan-roasted medaillon of veal with dried porcini blinis and thinly sliced mushrooms with chervil, or splurge for the whole lobster sautéed in olive oil, muscat grapes, and beurre blanc with verjuice. The seasonal truffle menu may be too rich for some (€150), but a €35 lunch menu offers nice balance for budget-conscious travelers.

    Christian Etienne Review

    Our son had arranged to pay for a very special occasion dinner here, otherwise we wouldn't have gone near it because of the very high prices. The tasting menu ("autumn vegetable") was exquisite, every course a small gem of delectable tastes and textures. The setting is lovely as well, although the Mistral gales kept all inside. Only downside was a certain mild neglect and condescension toward us: obviously not going to be regulars, not the Beautiful-People VIPs we saw around us (I'd never before seen provision of small metal racks so women didn't have to put their Birkin bags directly on the floor). And we didn't order several bottles of the wine - as exquisite as it was.
