On 7th November, the awards ceremony for the 2023 Gault&Millau guide took place. Our gourmet restaurant entered the famous guide, with a very good score of 15 out of 20 and a 3 chef’s hat rating !
This is a magnificent accolade only 2 months since we opened, for the entire team who ardently do their utmost every day, alongside our two chefs Mathieu Vande Velde & David Martin !
“On the eve of its centenary, this legendary hotel-restaurant near to the famous Ardennes circuit has been fully restored. A restaurant has been opened next to the luxurious hotel, run by none other than David Martin, who has wasted no time in taking the restaurant to the highest levels of gastronomy. His right-hand man is Mathieu Vande Velde, his former executive chef and second at La Paix. Together, they make dishes adapted to the era but which also draw their roots from the region. Having gained fame on television, this young chef possesses the talent for translating the cuisine of his mentor into gourmet dishes that are perfectly presented and respectful of their ingredients. The produce is at the forefront in all the dishes. For example, Ardennes ham is used in a smoky-flavoured mousse that is served with compressed pig’s ears and lard brioche. The Ondenval trout soufflé is presented on the plate with a fantastic oyster and dill cream. The Brittany lobster is cooked on a wood fire whilst its pincers are served raw. All these dishes display culinary genius. This establishment has not wasted time in putting itself on the gastronomic map and has already earned a Gault & Millau 3 chef’s hat rating!”
