Fodor's Review

Suave and sleek, the William Katz–designed interior—which evokes this artist's acclaimed ballet scenery (thanks to all the silver ribbons and black-crystal chandeliers)—remains one of the best reasons to visit Christophe. Chef Jean-Joel Bonsens's French-tinged and ever-evolving menu—always with a few vegetarian options—may include entrées such as lobster and orange with saffron, tomato, basil, and vanilla, or roast suckling pig with braised carrots and honey

polenta gravy. You can preorder a "boat box" in case you want to take your meal on a canal cruise.

Magical

One of the most memorable meals I've ever experienced. Everything was sublime. The food was great, the service was perfect. I felt like a regular and not a tourist. Christophe even stopped buy our table to check on things. And to otp it off, there was a gorgeous sunset. When can I go back?!?

Some things in life are worth it

Extremely elegant restaurant with well spaced tables. Superb staff. Yes it's very expensive but you come away feeling you've had a taste experience and been pampered. The 4 course set menu is 51 euros and included a wonderful cheeseboard plus 2 "freebie" courses. The a la carte is very expensive - starters 20 euros mains 35 euros. Cheapest wine is 36 euros. But somehow it's all worth it.

A delight in all respects

Cheerful elegance complements a dining experience characterized by M. Royer's truly inventive cuisine. You may be astonished by the combinations he comes up with, but none of them have failed to impress me so far. Interesting wine list with many reasonably priced bottles (e.g. a Madiran recommended by the sommelière instead of a more expensive wine I would have chosen - a true sign of a fine restaurant!). I am sure you will enjoy your evening

if you have a bit of adventure in your spirit!

Forgetful service

This is a very pretty restaurant that is trying very hard to be a 5-star but has a way to go. The food was very good, but they had a group of 10 or 11 and sort of forgot us. My husband ordered a cheese course which was completely forgotten but after reminding the waiter, we didn't get charged for it. Nice place - would recommend it.
