Its devotees have long proclaimed this exceptional restaurant the best in the country and Guillaume Lebrun's French haute cuisine the most exalted expression of the culinary arts, an opinion that has found favour with the good people at Michelin, who have put two stars in its crown. The lunch menu is an absolute steal, at least in this stratosphere.

The food is innovative without being fiddly, beautifully cooked and superbly presented. The room itself is all contemporary elegance and the service expertly formal yet surprisingly friendly – the staff are meticulously trained and are as skilled at answering queries and addressing individual requests as they are at making sure not one bread crumb lingers too long on the immaculate table cloths. Owner Patrick Guilbaud himself usually does the rounds of the tables in the evening to salute regular customers and charm first-timers into returning. Reservations are absolutely necessary.
