    Exceptionally good tasting dishes, later on the evening the restaurant was full and waiters had a bit of a struggle keeping up. This did not bother, it was still a great experience. Beautiful open kitchen.

    Christmas day lunch with my son - fabulous and exceeded our expectations. The food is fusion French and South East Asian, with just the right balance. Subtle, an enticing blend of flavours and importantly .... surprising. The service was outstanding. Delightful. Thankyou L'Essentiel for a memorable Xmas day lunch. We'll be talking about this one for a while!

    The restaurant was very accommodating, we arrived 30 minutes late due to terrible traffic. Nevertheless they waited for us and kept our table. The food was everything we hoped it would be and we were able to enjoy a delicious lunch. The service was impeccable and the waiter’s recommendation for wine was perfect. One of our favorite places in France.

About the restaurant

FESTIVAL ET GASTRONOMIE – Venir à Deauville, arpenter ses longues plages, croiser une ou deux stars de cinéma… et puis manger ! Mais attention, bien manger ! Direction l’Essentiel, un restaurant qui sous ses airs de bistrot, cache une cuisine haute voltige, un festival de saveurs dans ses assiettes.

ÉVEIL DES SENS – Dans Essentiel, il y a « sens ». Cela tombe bien ! L’énoncé de la carte éveille à lui seul une foultitude de sens : des produits pointus, des accords subtils aux accents résolument asiatiques, tout ici n’est que plaisir, fraîcheur, délicatesse et invention.

DUO DE CHOC – Derrière les fourneaux, ce sont quatre mains qui égrainent les notes salées et sucrées d’une symphonie gustative polyglotte. Charles et Mira qui ont fait leur classes dans de grandes maisons maîtrisent la partition à la perfection.
