  • 16/20 and 3 toques in the Guide Gault & Millau® 2016:

« This hotel property of an excellent standing, managed by Vanessa and Arnauld Baert, is a model of homogeneity. Luxurious rooms, a stunning park, an environment with a great beauty, the weekends in Germigney are amongst those that you do not forget, in particular after you have benefited from the delights of Pierre Basso-Moro, a loyal and talented chef, who trained, more particularly, with Dominique Le Stanc and Antoine Westermann. His very personal cuisine, between classicism and modernity, easily seduces guests practically conquered in advance through this flattering environment: white tuna cooked blue, lemon jam, chickpea puree, white cheese with cucumber, John Dory cooked as a whole on a bed of hay, potatoes with rosemary, grilled vegetables, apricot of Provence in compote and sherbet semolina with milk and flower crumble … Very nice wine cellar, in particular with Jura and Burgundy wines […].  »
