The one Michelin starred Restaurant next to Bordeaux
“At the crossroads of the vineyards of Bordeaux and Cognac, let yourself be tempted by the noble local products, enhanced by our cooking tradition, subtle and easy to approach, flavorful sauces, intense broths cooked in harmony, staying within the French tradition, playing with flavors but keeping a classic feeling”.
That’s the way how the Michelin starred Chef, Maxime Deschamps, defines his cuisine.
The Château's restaurant, loyal to the best French traditions, serves fine gourmet cuisine, creative and regional, inspired by the richness of the local market featuring the foods of the sea of the Estuary of Gironde.
A place where each meal becomes a celebration between the lands of Cognac and Bordeaux.
The meals of the restaurant one starred Michelin can be served as well in the Jardin d’hiver, a covered terrace overlooking the fountains and park.
In summer, guests can enjoy meals on the terrace.
- Breakfast: 07:30 am - 10:30 am
- Lunch: 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
- Dinner: 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Chef, Maxime Deschamps
Originally from Limousin, Maxime Deschamps graduated from the hospitality school Quercy Périgord in Soucillac.
After completing his culinary studies he worked around France at some prestigious establishments, often Relais et Châteaux and Michelin starred, taking him from Paris to Pays-de-Loire to Provence. In 1994 he decided to fly to the island of Saint-Barthélemy, in the Antilles, under the guidance of one of his former head chefs. Once there he took the reins of the kitchen of the luxurious Relais et Châteaux Hôtel Le Toiny, where in 13 years of service he was awarded with numerous prizes, including the “Grand de Demain Gault&Millau”.
Taking advantage of his proximity to the United States, he worked in various Relais et Châteaux on the East Coast of the United States as well as New York City, in addition to performing cooking demonstrations on prestigious cruise ships throughout the Caribbean.
In 2006 he took over one of the oldest restaurants on the island of Saint-Berthélemy, whilst remaining a consultant to the Hôtel Le Toiny.
In 2010 he returned to his homeland to run the restaurant of the Château de Mirambeau.
