Many dishes come in threes, such as ‘Le Saint-Pierre\' – a fillet of john dory pan-fried in a spicy butter; spinach cream ‘aligot\' and fillet of haddock, and chopped rocket salad.

Dishes are divided into \'\'Original\'\' and \'\'Classic Touch\'\' with the former offering a modern twist on the classical French approach (gratinated Tiger prawns, vegetable nem and ‘Satini-coco\' sauce) and the latter with more classic favourites like Bresse chicken breast, asparagus and morel.
