A wonderful building on the outside and in.

As I arrived a bit early to Le Negresco I decided to start the evening with a drink in La Relais bar. A Negresco Royal a great and refreshing champagne drink with kirsch, sirop de framboises monin and champagne et pailettes d ór.

The menu started with appetezier which was red tuna, salmon cube and goat cheese with red pepper.


As starter dublin bay prawns raviole with herbs, crustaseans brothflavoured with squid ink.

Filet of croaker fish studded with olives, Provecal swisschard and razorshell stock with bazil.

Dessert was called Cherries season. It was cherries poached in earl grey tea and crispy poppy waffer filled with cherry ice cream. Well, I really hope that we will have a good harvest of cherries this autumn…

And after this I had an asortment of macarons and petit fours that were excuisitly made and a cup of amazing coffee. Let us say that the waiter knew what kind of coffees he were selling.

All in all this evening were great. The was cooked in a nice way as expected at a **-Michelin restaurant. But I felt that the flavours was not that strong and no dish (except coffee) really stood out. But I will not hold it against them, the menu stated ”Our dishes are seasoned with delicacy” so it was what I imagined. What stood out was the perfect but relaxed service. Service and personal touce is key at two stars, but at Chantecler it was not stiff at all and I found my self very welcome. In between two dishes I got their own paper to glimpse through since I was visiting on my own. When did that happend before? I will be back. Back to La Relais bar, back to the Chantecler and maybe back to stay at Le Negresco.
