The chef, Christophe Schmitt

Christophe Schmitt’s background is full of stars, beginning with Crocodile in Strasbourg (1 star in the Michelin guide) all the way through to Diane, the restaurant at Fouquet’s in Paris. A regular participant in gourmet cuisine competitions (winner of the Pierre Taittinger International Culinary Prize in 2012, Meilleur ouvrier de France finalist in 2013), the chef has chosen L’Almandin and the Île de la Lagune hotel-restaurant as his home base for new culinary experiences. Christophe Schmitt loves purity and simplicity, high quality products and subtle combinations of flavours.

Testimonial: Guy, business manager and foodie

I often come to the L’Almandin restaurant for business lunches, tastings with the gourmet menu in the evening, or on weekends or for private events. I particularly appreciate the understated simplicity of Christophe Schmitt’s cuisine: his gourmet cuisine is unpretentious and accessible, but you can tell that everything is very precise, perfectly mastered. The cooking is absolutely perfect. It’s the cuisine of a great starred chef! He deserves his Michelin award!
