Restaurant Absinthe was conceived with the idea of comfortable and convivial dining. Chef Francois Mermilliod does away with the fussiness and formality associated with French fine dining, opting instead to showcase straight-forward, clean-tasting, ingredient-driven food that is done to perfection.
There is also an extremely well curated wine list dominated mostly by Burgundies and fine wines from the Bordeaux region. With wine served by the glass or by bottle, there are ample opportunities to pair the dishes with just the right wine, further enhancing the enchanting taste of each bite. With its walls a soothing shade of pistachio, its chairs upholstered in a lovely rose and its friendly professional service, it is certainly a walk in the park to feel at home in the restaurant's cosy ambience.
