You need only to make a reservation to join us on Sunday 24th December and then turn up! Can you be enticed by Wild Boar, Scallops and Challans Duck? Or perhaps unique ingredients such as quince, pecan, yuzu and rose?  The full menu can be viewed here and offers 5 courses including matched wines for €129.  you can make your reservations online here, through reception, or our concierge.

New Year’s Eve Dining in Style 

Why not enjoy your last meal for 2017 in style and join us for a carefully curated 6 course menu at Restaurant Le Faubourg? All good celebrations should come with lobster so there’s some of that and just because Christmas is over, doesn’t mean there can’t still be goose. Halibut with pumpkin and ginger will further indulge your seafood desires. But it’s a special occasion so indulge yourself on Waygu beef with truffles and then to fill the tiny spaces you have left, there’s basically sorbet, plus a golden caramel dome for dessert. Reservations are essential online, through reception or our concierge. you can see the full menu here for New Years eve dinner at Restaurant Le Faubourg in Sunday 31st December. Price is €195 per person and includes all corresponding wines and aperitifs.

Let the Champagne Flow!

Of course it’s not Sylvester without Champagne and in our Lounge Bar Le Faubourg we have only the best to make your celebration truly memorable. Each package includes a delicacy of your choice to enjoy with a bottle of Taittinger Brut Réserve, from one of France’s largest and oldest family run Champagne houses. Enjoy caviar blinis, or the more earthy goose liver with brown bead and accompaniments. Or why not stay classic with simply prawns, sauces and champagne? Menu prices vary but you can discover all the details here on the online menu. Make your reservation now online so as not to miss out on all the dazzle from 7pm on 31st December.

We also have our very own real life Berliner providing some of the best vibes in Berlin in the bar for Sylvester. Clarice brings more than 15 years on the boards to her set on New Year’s Eve. If you love the classics from blues and funk to soul and film, then Clarice’s blend of music history with today’s pop classics will be your perfect night out.
