Anyone been to Le Parc Les Crayeres?

In Reims, 120km from Paris if I remember correctly. 2 michelin stars and very nice setting, i might say amazing setting. Andy hayler gave 19 out of 20 for his recent visit. Any opinions? How easy is to visit it for lunch while being in Paris as a tourist.

    It's very easy to visit, 45 minutes on the TGV and then ten minutes by taxi. I think at the moment it is overshadowed by its newly anointed 3* neighbour.

    I was planning on lunch in the Jardin but booking was a nightmare.

      Went about a month ago and found the spot lovely, the service ok, the food pretty and teeny. glad l did it, once was enough. The strawberry souffle was wonderful.
      Went to Assiette Champenois this week and liked it less and paid a great deal more. Wine was stellar, food way too precious for me. Nothing even for a memory.

        I haven't been for over 10 years but the setting is spectacular (and the rooms facing the lawn and city wonderful). I cannot comment on the food since when we were there Gerard Boyer was cooking and it was 3 macaroon food indeed.

          I was with DCM, found the setting magical and the food brilliant, if in insufficient quantity. Neighbors had a leg of lamb for which I'd be back. The duck like a lievre was imo a memorable dish.

            "insufficient quantity."
            By you, old son, except for Chez L'Ami Jean and the original Regalade, where do you get enough food?

            Are there any places with good food at non Michelin prices in Reims? Everybody seems to recommend the same 2 places

              Plenty in the centre. I really enjoyed Le Bocal, and Eveil des Sens
