At the heart of the hotel is Bistro du Vin, a classic, elegant and informal setting for lunch or dinner. The à la carte menu boasts a great grill section with delicious dry aged steaks that have been matured for at least 28 days, but the menu's main influence is a nod to the classics of French bistro dining in its choices for all courses. On the reverse of the à la carte menu there is also a slimmed down selection of great wines for all palates and purses. However, there is always the full Hotel du Vin expansive wine list to choose from should diners wish. The dessert menu helpfully suggests wine or digestive pairings.
