The menu is limited to a few starters, main courses and deserts. The dishes change regularly and depend on the season, what was fresh at the market etc. Service is 10/10. Food was very fresh but personally I thought the dishes were too complex, just...More

Had a business lunch here and took their lunch menu. Both the starter and main course were excellent. Light food in good quantities perfectly prepared. Friendly staff, waiting time maybe a bit longish

We came to the restaurant attracted by the star but a bit hesitant because of the mixed comments. We had a nice and professional welcome. The menu is short (app 5 starters & main dishes), all very tempting, offering a choice between meat/fish/seafood. All plates...More

Dinner to celebrate we’ve bought an apartment. Had been there before at lunch (much better option) Food is exquisite including its presentation but the service is amateurish. Bread came very late, drinks were not served (water glasses not filled) or served too much (white wine...More

Lovely venue for a slightly more special occasion. The food was delicious - I had studied squid on black ink risotto followed by the chocolate pud - both perfectly cooked and seasoned. Tasteful surroundings and low level music. Only critic was that they forgot to...More

Average food, rather limited choice (which can be a positive factor if it indicated high quality food to choose from). Not what you expect from an "étoilé" restaurant.

We were attracted by the Michelin Star, but what a mistake. Even with reservations, we waited for a very long time to even get a waiter to ask for a drink order. When the heavy blackboard was brought to the table, we inquired about some...More

To me typically a restaurant with ambition but not really in touch with today's world. The dishes were not bad, but overly combined, 'moussed', foamed and otherwise overcrafted. A style of cooking which might have been 'in' some 15 years ago, but ranking as outdated...More

I've been visiting LMEP for 10 years and it just gets better every time. The food is so good, well-prepared and beautifully served that it makes you want to laugh out loud. Menu is 5-6 starters, 5-6 mains, 5-6 desserts, all on a blackboard and...More
