Le Duende


Duende! When the art of bullfighting and a flamenco dancer come together to bring Pierre Gagnaire's imagination to life.

There is a separate entrance to the Hotel Imperator's fine-dining restaurant. The owner strives to use top-quality products in concocting spontaneous and original creations with expert technique. Nicolas Fontaine has been performing on the piano here for fourteen years, and his performance reflects the rebellious spirit of his mentor. Here, you can expect only the best, here's a taster of what's to come: Mediterranean gambas with amontillado - Thai grapefruit, red Camargue rice, yellow mango. Doe fillet with juniper - green cabbage au gratin, red cabbage marmalade with blackcurrant, quince with holly brandy, and for dessert, an infusion of citrus fruit, lemon and clementine cream panna cotta. Aloe vera 'gavotte' biscuit, Williams pears and pink grapefruit marmelade. There is a superb wine list with over 600 references and a preference for regional wines. Pierre Gagnaire really is a talented chef, providing delicious cuisine with just the right dose of precision.
