    Ver di Vin

    Hidden away in a vaulted medieval cellar, this restaurant à vin is known for the excellence of both its cuisine de maison traditionelle (traditional French home cooking) and its wine list; 30 vintages are available by the glass. Specialities, some with subtle Japanese influences, include feuilleté de caille (quail wrapped in pastry) and dishes prepared with mushrooms.

Specialities include duckling perfumed with coffee and, for dessert, poached pear drizzled with chocolate sauce.
