Food lovers and gourmets will appreciate the traditional dishes that have been brought up to date by the Chef Benoît Margueritat, who brings his own creative touch.

Today, he commands the kitchen of La Chaîne d’Or and serves sincere, spontaneous and colourful dishes.
He is particularly interested in offering a new take on traditional dishes, for the greatest pleasure of your taste buds.
Be amazed from the moment the starter arrives, with an Escalope of Foie Gras pan-fried in a Burger style or Croaker in a Court-Bouillon with Maritime Aromas. Continue with a Lean Fillet pan-fried on the skin served with a Venere Rice Risotto and a Seafood Sauce, or let yourself be tempted by a Sweetbread in an Apple Coating. Our tray of cheeses matured by us offers a very varied and good quality selection based mainly on the treasures of the cheeses of Normandy.
Finally, round off your meal with a sweet and delicate treat. You will be spoiled for choice: a Fondant Dark Chocolate Heart with a Caramel Dressing for those with a sweet tooth, the Warm Apple Tart Flambéed with Calvados for more traditional diners, or a Shortbread Biscuit with Apple as a tribute to Normandy.
