The seasonally reared and organic produce, includes farm eggs cooked at low temperature with pecorino cream, and roasted saddle of lamb.

Director of Hôtel Chais Monnet & Spa, Mr. Kader Bedjeddah, says:”It has been a tough year for hospitality and tourism, given the difficulties that Covid-19 has thrown at us, but it is bolstering to have achieved this award whilst we embark on our recovery.  A Michelin star is a very encouraging sign for our team.”
