Le Castellane: our fine-dining restaurant
An eye-catching culinary showcase
Offering a majestic view over the Loire River, the Le Castellane restaurant features an opulent light-bathed interior design modelled on the Empire style. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner every day during the height of the season and from Wednesday to Sunday between mid-October and early April.
Whether dining with friends, family or business colleagues, Chef Richard Prouteau offers a menu with a selection of delicately crafted dishes with each product elegantly showcased on the most beautiful plates. As a testament to his love and passion for his craft, the chef sources nearly all the seasonal ingredients from the best local producers, before creating refined and daring gourmet dishes that epitomise French fine dining.
Step foot inside Le Castellane at midday and discover the full extent of the chef's culinary expertise with the three-course Prieuré Menu or succumb to the Taster Menu in the evening and allow Richard Prouteau to take your taste buds and senses on a gastronomic experience embracing the Loire region's fine-dining style.
Chef Richard Prouteau
Local boy Richard Prouteau is an expert on the region's produce and flavours. Le Castellane reflects his vision of offering a modern take on the great standards of French cuisine, while working with local producers who not only know and cultivate the area's resources every day but also stay true to the region's identity. His close links with famous Chef Marc Veyrat have inspired Richard Prouteau to incorporate herbs and plants into his cooking. His favourites include wild-picked produce, especially his "little favourite" - wild asparagus. The result is a culinary style packed with elegant flavours and colourful, gourmet dishes.
When looking for the perfect accompaniment to a refined meal, look no further than the light and fruity wines of the Loire Valley, or even Bordeaux and Burgundy wines!
The bar simply oozes refinement and chic relaxation with its classic, yet clearly contemporary design! The white marble floor is adorned with black and gold rugs, large armchairs and small Louis XVI-style double banquette seats in black, blue and gold, as well as mahogany panelling, pendant lights and Wi-Fi! Fancy a pre-dinner aperitif, an after-dinner liqueur or a cocktail? Treat your taste buds while admiring the view over the Loire River and Valley. The bar also provides the ideal setting for a gourmet treat in the afternoon or for spending a few hours poring over your notes or computer while sipping a tea or coffee and nibbling on a home-made pastry or mini dessert.
