The finesse of Jean-Luc Boulay, the flair of Arnaud Marchand, and the delicacy of Emeline Péro are combined to create a unique and exquisite experience at Les Botanistes.

Unlike many other restaurants, they do not build their dishes around the protein, but rather around the plants. The protein will be cooked in a minimalist way to honor the other components of the plate.
