Philippe Darcq's personalised service

An invitation to be surprised

Often, we express in our paths the originality of an early vocation. His, on the contrary, was late.

It was only at the age of 26, when he joined the brigade of the Crocodile*** in Strasbourg with Mrs. Monique JUNG, that he understood that it was through the service in the dining room that he could best exercise his desire to associate the respect of a profound rigor with the expression of warm and respectful human relations. Respectful of both the diversity of those we meet and the codes of the gastronomic restaurant industry.

Thanks to this experience, he was able to accompany 2 chefs, Wout BRU in Eygalières and Benoit VIDAL in Val d'Isère to obtain a second star in the Michelin Guide.

Passionate about wine, he also chose to enrich his experience by practicing sommellerie, bar, and even room service to learn how to decipher the expectations of Palace clients such as Cheval Blanc in Courchevel, Palm Hotel & Spa on Reunion Island as well as Domaine de Manville in Les Baux de Provence where he obtained 1 Michelin star.

His expertise allows him to personalize the service by using tools, techniques and his team in a contemporary interpretation to create a customer experience based on sensory emotion.

It is his responsibility not to let anything show so that those he supervises can work serenely, in order to offer our guests a smooth and calm service.

For a few years, while managing the gastronomic restaurant "Saisons", he was able to pass on his know-how to the young generations of the Paul Bocuse Institute where he succeeded in helping the chef Davy Tissot, MOF 2004 and Bocuse d'Or 2021, to obtain a star in the Michelin Guide, making it the first starred application restaurant in France, as well as having it listed in the famous Relais & Châteaux guide.
