" En cuisine, pour doubler le bonheur il faut le partager "

Patrick GILLOT

Patrick, who was head chef in Lapérouse, Bofinger in Paris and opened a restaurant in Osaka with his team, invites you to sample some of his favourite dishes.

At dinner time he will surprise you with products from his vegetable garden. Our motto is to buy local products, fish from Lorient harbour, bread from Yann made with sour dough, eggs from the nearby farm.

Every evening for dinner, you will have the opportunity of sampling some of the recipes Patrick elaborates daily for your delight.

You can even ask us to explain how we grow our vegetables and try to find new herbs for you to sample.
