Starting the meal with a Appetizer in three layers.


The first layer is radish with a light cream on a crispy chip.


Starting our appetizer.


The 2nd layer is grilled zucchini with faro and minced clams cooked in a fish broth.


Very light and very flavorful


Cheers to a start of a great meal!


The third layer is an oyster with pickled ginger -So fresh!


Assorted bread and brioche with butter


The bread was so delicious and the butter is also so good but we have to refrain ourselves from eating....


The 1st course is a marinated mackerel with steamed clams, lots of vegetables, puree of beets on a crispy cracker and drizzle with a beet sauce.


What a beautiful presentation!


Mackerel usually have a strong odor but we were so surprised that here the mackerel does not have any smell at all and the dish is simply so delectable.


Wine for the table.


The second course is a barely cooked langoustine with a tuile, roasted rainbow carrots, and puree of yellow carrots.


The langoustine was so sweet and so fresh with such a wonderful sauce.

The dish is top with a lemon verbena which has a bright, slightly sweet, herbaceous flavor with a distinct hint of lemongrass. 


We all love this dish.  Each ingredient on the plate are perfect together.


The third course is a pan seared Pollock with a mild, creamy, and  delicate texture.  The fish is absolutely cooked to perfection


The Pollock is paired with fried artichoke, roasted cipollini, marinated artichoke, beans with a delicious and bright arugula vinaigrette.


It was so good and also well presented.


The Fig

Breton shortbread, fresh roasted fig, “fragola” grapes, cooking juice, plant infusion in milk foam.


So beautiful to look at.


Once the dish is on the table, our waitress proceed to spoon a generous doll up of milk foam.


The Lemon

Variation of lemons and citrus fruits and meringue


 It was so delicious with various texture and we all love it.


Desserts are done and our waitresses are cleaning our table.




Sorbet, financier, and fruit juice.  We were so full that we barely touched the mignardise.


End of our meal.


Panoramic view of the whole restaurant.

Tuan is the one who saw chef Matthieu Aumont on YouTube cooking scallops and he requested to eat here.  The problem was that were a bit too early and the season for scallops which is not starting until the beginning of October, but at any rate we all wanted to try his food anyway, as he maintained his Michelin star for 16 years.

Overall, we had an excellent experience at Aux pesked!  Great service, the staff was super nice and attentive and the food was so delicious and so nicely presented.
