L'Atelier de Ben


An elegant place where epicureans relish the harmony of world cuisines and flavours.

Having adopted Réunion as his home, Benoît Vantaux opened his kitchen atelier in Saint-Denis. Here, an inventive and creative cuisine is served to perfection.

Everything is revisited and the menu is constantly renewed. With unpretentious decor in a beautiful black and white space, this restaurant is charming and modern. The service and warm welcome complement a menu full of flavour and authenticity.The chef takes on the great gastronomic classics with an astute marriage of ingredients and offers, to start, ravioli of mi-cuit duck foie gras and black truffle emulsion, followed by Aviron pigeon with blackcurrant giblet sauce, seared foie gras, risotto with shiitake mushrooms and beans.

For dessert, shortbread with almond and vanilla cream, fresh raspberries and pistachio ice cream. Benoît also offers cooking classes. Remember to book ahead!
