Review on La Sablonnerie
Reached via a narrow isthmus with spectacular views, La Sablonnerie occupies a 400-year-old one-time farmhouse surrounded by immaculately tended gardens. Despite the rustic architecture, the overall atmosphere and feel of the place is one of understated sophistication – thanks largely to owner Elizabeth Perée's caring stewardship.
The beamed and granite-walled bar makes a suitable spot for pre-prandial drinks and canapés before moving into the atmospheric dining room. Local seafood and pickings from the hotel's farm and garden dictate matters in the kitchen: France is the main culinary inspiration, although influences from elsewhere point up dishes such as tandoori-spiced turbot roasted on dried fennel and served with a langoustine boudin and lemon beurre blanc.
Other offerings from the daily-changing menu might include a warm salad of confit duck, hot salmon mousse in sorrel leaves on a mushroom galette with Chablis cream or Sark lobster grilled with a lime and ginger butter glaze. To conclude, there might be hot glazed figs in Merlot with hazelnut and honey ice cream or praline and Grand Marnier parfait.
