Testimony from Jean-Pierre G. : "This evening was, for my partner and myself, quite unexpected. We dined beautifully, and since we were at "la table du chef ", we discovered the "behind the scenes" and enjoyed the work of the employees in both the cooking and the service. Congratulations to all the staff for their precision, the thoroughness and the mastery in the preparation of the dishes and the organization of the service. All our compliments also to Chef Julien Poisot, not only for the high quality of his cooking and his friendliness, but also for his talents as a conductor. "
