*** star Michelin ? ( la cote )

has anyone dined at either

la Hotel de Ville, Crissier
or
Pont de Brent, Brent
.
I'm looking at taking my wife out for a little treat for her birthday and both are listed as three star so obviously 'purty darn good I should hope but again does anyone have any experiences with either?

thanks,

G



(just as I'm typing this I read a review of Pont de Brent and the person commented that ChateuxVieux, Geneva was a better meal ..comments? )

Both are excellent, but sometimes it can be difficult to get reservations, especially Pont de Brent because Gérard Rabaey is handing over to his sous-chef early next year.

A 3 star restaurant should never really cost more than 250 GBP for the tasting menu. Wine is what you want to pay for it.

Well feel free to drink beer, juice or whatever the hell you like. It's your money and your night.

Re: *** star Michelin ? ( la cote )

We went to the one in Crissier last year for our two years and it's an incredible restaurant, nothing to else say. They have degustation menus for 250-300 francs, so it doesn't have to be that expensive. The splendid 5-6 course meal is worth it. Get the menus, avoid the expensive wines and it'll honestly feel like a bargain.
