Product, Origin, Respect, are the key words of chef Alexandre Willaume who is one of the chefs who have the pleasure of innovating around vegetarian cuisine.

Its menu is omnivorous. In each of his dishes, he showcases seasonal vegetables by marveling at the selected products. Each product is carefully chosen from local producers and partners, thus highlighting products from the Earth and the Ocean. He knows how to find the perfect balance on the plate.

A man of sportsmanship and values ​​(surfing, Wing Chun, preservation of the environment, healthy and tasty food and animal welfare), the chef works his dishes to find the balance between body and mind.
