Hg2 : The Hedonist


Villa is a formal but funky haute-cuisine French restaurant, and not designed for a quick snack: the opulent and luxurious surroundings are meant to be enjoyed over a long-drawn-out meal.

The main dining area is open yet intimate; a long bar runs along one wall and a large fireplace is covered in golden mosaics. A staircase leads up the other wall, also covered in mosaics, to small private dining areas, hidden behind richly coloured curtains.

The colours and patterns are reminiscent of a Matisse painting – distinctly southern French. Executive chef Eric Tassin creates specialities that seem to concentrate on the use foie gras in one way or another, and although the menu is short and fairly predictable, the food is delicious.
