Our restaurant, the Grand Dictionnaire
Your Hotel Monte Cristo is delighted to draw your attention to its recently opened restaurant, the Grand Dictionnaire. Please read on as we tell you all about this fine establishment that is both appealing and welcoming, as well as in keeping with our values and our hotel’s theme!
The Grand Dictionnaire and Dumas
Your Hotel Monte Cristo evokes in each detail the amazing personality of Alexandre Dumas, the man of a thousand lives who roamed the world of the 19th century like a whirlwind of energy and creativity. The famed and prolific writer not only created remarkable stories in which heroes like Edmond Dantès thrill and inspire us, but he also produced works such as the Grand Dictionary of Cuisine, his gastronomic magnum opus. It was this that inspired the name of the Grand Dictionnaire as well as some of the recipes offered by our chef, Jean-Baptiste Ascione. With fresh and seasonal ingredients always prepared and cooked entirely on site, he creates an enchantment of flavours and colours...

Cast off the shackles of the traditional starter – main course - dessert! The Grand Dictionnaire offers dishes in individual portions.
