Summary: Aesthetic dining with a touch of art.
Villa René Lalique, nestled in a serene location, offers an exquisite dining experience with a blend of luxury, art, and nature. The restaurant boasts a bright dining room with views of the park, where crystal and gastronomy come together to create an atmosphere of elegance and refinement. The Austrian chef has made a name for himself with his artistic culinary presentations, such as the "RockStone" foie gras and a colorful array of yellow vegetables inspired by a Damien Hirst painting. The menu features light Mediterranean flavors, clear and well-defined tastes in dishes like the seriola with crab, kohlrabi, and kaffir lime, and impeccable fish preparations. Eclectic and never short on ideas, the cuisine also includes dishes inspired by the chef's Styrian roots, like the 16-hour confit rabbit shoulder with a sweet paprika sauce. While some may find the spiced duck breast overwhelming, the desserts by Nicolas Multon are exceptional, displaying creations like the Kriegsheim cherry in various forms and the Ecuadorian chocolate reminiscent of a saint-honoré. The restaurant's wine cellar, managed by a renowned sommelier, is a treasure trove with 60,000 bottles from around the globe, including selections from the owner's personal collection and estates in Tuscany, Spain, and Bordeaux. Villa René Lalique is a celebration of René Lalique's legacy, combining delicate, intelligent, and creative cuisine in a setting that reflects the artistry of the Art Nouveau movement.
