De la Croix d'Or’s cuisine

At restaurant De la Croix d'Or, chef Olivier Hiernard offers refined French cuisine, based on the finest regional and seasonal products. His fanaticism for authentic cooking is evident in the way he reinterprets traditional dishes, updating his menu in line with what’s fresh in the market. Favourites on the menu include seared tuna, placed on an avocado salad with coriander, black sesame, spring onion and a slice of ginger. And the salmon tartare from the Swiss Alps, hidden under a thin slice of homemade smoked salmon, topped with balsamic and pickled vegetables. The superb wine list carefully selected by sommelier Claudia Hiernard will enable you to pair each dish with the perfect glass of wine.
