    Excellent meal in a lovely setting. After dinner sweets arrived with a surprise discrete birthday candle which was a nice gesture. We were initially told on arrival that we could only have a la carte or 3 course menu, as final orders for the 5 course menu were at 21h while we arrived at 21h15. After insisting with the waiter to check again with the chef we were able to order. No problem if this is the case but it should have been specified when I reserved, especially since I received a confirmation call the day before and I confirmed 9pm booking, while 15 min delay in arrival is surely acceptable! All in all a very pleasurable evening.

    Menu surprise du chef en 5 plat, surprenant, original, excellent ! Petit bémol : pas mal d'attente en début de repas. Mais on reviendra avec grand plaisir !

    Food is good, however this restaurant did not honor the fourchette offer. Hospitality was not up to par for a Michelin star restaurant. Could use improvement, value for price not great.

    Amazing food, wonderful service, a delightful experience! Atmosphere at Chateau de Pray is very nice, and the restaurant is equally agreeable. We enjoyed our meal very much.

    Service was sporadic, we had to keep hailing the server. Food was also not that tasty even though it was unique

    The staff was attentive, explained each dish and very professional, as 1 would expect. Thanks to other reviewers we tried the warm blackberry soufflé with blackberry sorbet and it did not disappoint. The goat cheese salad and charolais were memorable too!

    Starter and dessert were lovely, but the rest was pretty disappointing. We had far better meals the day prior at La Fourchette and the day after at Le Reserv, and for a fraction of the cost. Also, it was very hot and very silent.
