£159 – Michelin-starred chef's-table meal for 2 & champagne

Emily Booth

The Deal

For less than £80 a head, you and a friend can sit down to a tasting-menu dinner at the Chef's Table, at the Michelin-starred L'Ortolan. This Travelzoo-exclusive experience is not usually available in the evenings, and is the cheapest way to enjoy a tasting-menu dinner at the chef's table.

What's Included

  • A surprise 7-course tasting-menu meal for two at the Chef's Table, including a glass of champagne each and canapés on arrival, followed by petits fours and after-dinner coffees each
  • A voucher for three is £225; a voucher for four is £290
  • Valid 7pm Mon-Thu until 30 Apr, 2018
  • This voucher is also valid at lunchtime (seating at 12pm), when you'll save £11 on the regular price of a tasting-menu lunch for two at the Chef's Table. Valid Mon-Thu until 28 Dec, 2017; Mon-Fri 1 Jan-30 Apr, 2018
