Food and drink
Olivia was born in Morocco and went to live in Paris as a student where she remained. Her heritage is stamped all over the contemporary Moroccan-influenced French cuisine. The wine and champagne lists are impressive - and so they should be for the prices they charge. The cheapest bottle of champagne is 320 euros.
My favourite main course is the pumpkin velouté, which I have every time, and the cheesecake is, in my opinion, unrivalled.
The soft glow of hundreds of twinkling candles reflecting off the terracotta walls, as well as the ancient olive trees, star-lit sky overhead and scores of Europe’s most stylish people make for an utterly glam experience.
As you’d expect, it’s five-star all the way.
It's 800 metres past the King of Saudi Arabia’s house (let’s say ‘palace’), on the Istán road, just off the Golden Mile. Follow the flow of Ferraris at the sign-posted exit and you’ll find it.
It's overwhelmingly pricey, so you’ll need to be celebrating something quite special. It usually averages about 160 euros a head for a two-course dinner. As it is expensive, it has been given a low price rating, although this is no way reflects the food or experience you'll have.
