Having adopted Réunion as his home, Benoît Vantaux opened his kitchen atelier in Saint-Denis in 2006 after presiding over the InterContinental's restaurant in Paris. Here, an inventive and creative cuisine is served to perfection, seating 24 patrons for both lunch and dinner.
Everything is revisited and the menu is constantly being updated. 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, salmon Gravlax with lemongrass, thyme, chorizo and sesame, followed by a fillet of beef and foie gras cromesquis. And for dessert, amber rum baba or an almond and raspberry millefeuille.
Benoît also offers cooking classes. Whether you're interested in a workshop or dinner, consider booking ahead!
