I also find that the lighting was just the perfect amount of dim. It’s good for people like me who are very particular about it. Harsh lighting gives me pain in the eyes, especially at night. The table setting was minimalistic and there was the perfect overhead lighting right on top of the table to allow foodies like myself to take good pictures of the dishes, and post on social media.
We totally enjoyed the refreshing seafood. The Pic Saint Loup 2008 bottle of red wine went perfectly well with all the dishes, even the seafood.
If there is quail in the main course, I would most definitely go for it. In France, it was always at the top of my grocery shopping list because it’s always cheap and so easy to cook.
Whatever main dish you order, they will give you a side dish of mashed potatoes, which is apparently what Joël Robuchon is famous for. I’m not crazy about mashed potatoes but it was one of the best I’ve tried so far.
Hubby and I shared the huge cheese platter, which was even a lot for two people. We each had a dessert of the same kind. It was refreshing but not really my favorite.
