Chef Christophe Pelé

Brilliantly, he creates an instinctive, inspired and vibrantly modern style of cuisine. At Le Clarence, there is no set menu, but rather a variety of dishes based on exceptional and seasonal products. The land-sea associations, dear to the chef, are enhanced during each “sequence” of the meal by a myriad of satellite plates with marked flavours.
