A very good lunch at Saturne. This modern restaurant is the joint effort of chef Sven Chartier and sommelier Ewen Lemoigne, offering creative cuisine and natural wine in a beautiful space filled with blonde wood and plenty of natural light.

Saturned offers a three-course lunch set (€45) as well as a six-course carte blanche (€70). We ordered one of each to share, so the following photos are a mix of both menus. It all started with this “maquereau / cerise / pickles”, mackerel, cherry, and pickled onions drizzled with olive oil and bergamot oil.

To finish, an espresso with some madeleines. Lunch at Saturne was a lovely experience, with each plate being a pleasant harmony between different flavors and textures. The only dish that I could complain about was one of the main courses, “cochon de Bigorre” (not pictured as it’s basically the same as the duck dish in terms of condiments and plating) was a bit dry, and perhaps the last chocolate dessert was too big (though some people might love it for the portion)…but all in all this meal was a fun and memorable one. Worth coming back to.
