La Réserve review Rate it

This iconic building, unoccupied for more than a decade, has been brought to life again by stellar chef Jouni Tormanen, who moved his whole operation here in spring 2007. A turret-like structure on a rocky outcrop, flanked by a picturesque diving platform, La Réserve is a belle époque monument, into which a prosthesis of bistro, bar and fine-dining restaurant (L'Atelier du Goût) has been inserted. The result: a slick, quietly glamorous operation. The spirit of the menu remains unchanged from the days when Jouni's Atelier was set in a less glamorous location, with dishes like the signature open ravioli of homard bleu setting off the culinary fireworks. The bistro's menu roves a little more widely, offering miso soup in the same breath as rabbit confit or a good risotto, and tends not to eat into your holiday money with the same man-sized bites as the carte upstairs.
