At the fine dining restaurant Le Botaniste, Head Chef Didier Robin and his culinary team prepare upscale dishes made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Vegetables, fruits and herbs all come from the hotel’s permaculture vegetable garden.

The hotel’s pastry chef also prepares seasonal yet creative desserts and always makes sure that there is at least one gluten free or vegan option on the menu. The restaurant is only open for dinner and serves a seasonal set menu with either 3 or 4 dishes. A vegetarian option is always on offer. A private dining-room is available for hire for group bookings and the restaurant can also be privatised for lunch for special events.

Wine-bar

Our Sommelier has more than 300 French wine and Champagne references in his wine cellar but also offers a selection of wine pairings by the glass to accompany your meal while you dine at the restaurant.

At the restaurant’s bar, our mixologist serves creative cocktails with local ingredients, including herbs from the garden and house-made syrups. Cocktails are served with appetizers and can either be enjoyed in our cosy bar or on our terrace, while admiring our garden.
