The Cuisine
Creative, exciting, surprising

This comfortable, sophisticated and inviting room is the perfect setting in which to experience Chef Pascal Bastian’s cuisine. 
He chooses exceptional products from trusted suppliers to create bold and flavourful dishes. While paying homage to the traditions which form a cornerstone of his cuisine, this double Michelin-starred chef from Alsace adds touches of modernity and takes bold risks with ingredients from further afield: grilled peanuts and sesame are served with local beef, a pinch of ginger is used to season Fleckenstein venison.

Driven by his desire to inspire, please and surprise, Chef Bastian creates generous and flavourful dishes which are as surprising and subtle as they are delicious.

The wine cellar
Food and wine pairing

To ensure the perfect accompaniment to the Chef’s carefully prepared dishes, the gourmet restaurant Le Cheval Blanc has a wine cellar with more than 11,000 bottles of wine from all over France. Although vintages from Alsace are given pride of place, other regions are not to be out done; you’re sure to find the perfect wine to accompany your dish. Our sommelier, Jonathan Pral , is happy to offer invaluable advice to help you to find the perfect pairing.
