Petit Futé's opinion on L'ESSENTIEL
After having worked in prestigious palaces in Geneva and Monaco, and for a few years in Fontevraud, Chef Anthony Vaillant took over this establishment and transformed it in his own image. In a refined and warm setting, you will be surprised by a highly bistronomic cuisine, simple and refined, such as this perfect egg and crushed tomatoes or this filet of wild lean meat and seasonal vegetables. The service is impeccable and meticulous; the presentations are well done, the cooking mastered and the desserts are as many promises of good food.
