    The whole experience was phenomenal. We had the 7 course taster menu and it was probably one of the best meals we have ever had. Setting was amazing and the staff couldn’t be better. Will be coming back definitely.

    Have dined at the Leeu facility in the past and was always disappointed. Not this time. Improvement in every category. We enjoyed the al a carte menu. Quality and presentation of all the courses were excellent. Service exemplary with a much improved ambiance. I can highly recommend Le Chene with its new chef and management. Look forward to returning. Keith Stewart
