Indouchine – Under a buttressed wooden ceiling, looking out towards the lagoon, Indouchine is synonymous with the best of fine dining, where French haute cuisine is flavoured with little Indian and Chinese touches to produce pure gastronomic delight, a pleasure even for those wary of spices. The Chef’s speciality is pan-fried foie gras that has never seemed so wonderful, and the Chocolate soufflé is divine. Service is personalised as it should be. All guests are greeted by name. An attention to detail – a little sorbet, so mouth-watering that you wish it would never end, is served with the compliments of the house, to cleanse the palate before the dessert.
Le Langoustier – In September 2009, Beau Rivage unveils Langoustier’s new culinary concept: aromatic cuisine. This emanated from a meeting two passionate professionals: Executive Chef Stéphane Jean and Philipe Lelie, an expert in essential oils. The Executive Chef has also revamped Indouchine’s menu. So, today, Langoustier’s menu sublimes seafood with alliances of essential oils specially created for the restaurant. A citrus alliance accompanies camaron ‘prawns’ carpaccio, a drop of lemon dressing, fennel and celeriac julienne. Poached scallops are served with ‘Mascareigne’ flowers harmonic, citrus sauce and passion fruit salsa.
