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 a crispy supreme of chicken with potato gnocchi, leaks and tonka bean juice.
For dessert, red fruit tartlet with a verbena lemon cream and strawberry sorbet. Benoît also offers cooking classes. Remember to book ahead!
