4.8 (523) $$$$ $$$$ Belgian, French, Traditional, Modern, Fine Dining


Summary: A gastronomic riverside retreat.

L'Eau Vive stands out as a culinary gem nestled in a former mill, boasting over thirty years of acclaim for its exquisite rural setting, precise cooking style, and generous hospitality. The serene ambiance is enhanced by the soothing sounds of the Le Burnot river, especially when enjoyed from the terrace. The menu is a testament to creativity and balance, with dishes featuring tarama with carrot coulis, cucumber, basil oil, and Kalamata olives, as well as elegantly prepared grey shrimp with avocado, apple, and cucumber. The roasted whiting with thinly sliced razor clams and fresh salmon with zucchini flower and sabayon with garden herbs further showcase the kitchen's prowess. Traditional attention to wines and desserts remains a hallmark, with an extensive wine list and delectable desserts like chocolate tuile shaped like a leaf, various chocolate textures, and blackcurrant sorbet. The restaurant's unwavering consistency over the years justifies its esteemed reputation and its elevated ranking. Guests can also indulge in a unique dining experience at the table d’hôte in the kitchen or extend their visit by staying in one of the guestrooms, ensuring a memorable dining experience from start to finish. Currently undergoing renovation, L'Eau Vive promises to continue its legacy from its temporary location at the Espace Medissey starting from 5 October.
