Philosophy

A unique cuisine

Anthony and Fumiko found their personal style by contrasting flavours and interpreting products.It’s a French-Japanese cultural sharing.

Assa cuisine is continually in progress, always with fresh products and a vegetal, wooded and smoked touch.

Natured oriented, the chefs manage to be in symbiosis with local producers by enhancing their products. Their plates are colourful and refined. They play with texture and bold combination.

Our commitment

Local produce

Our producers all live at 20 minutes from the restaurant. They share the respect of their lands and their animals.
We are in a favour of a better way of eating.

A sustainable approach

Concerning our meat, we always buy the entire animal and we use all pieces. Not only the best ones. We would like to share this philosophy with our customers.

We don’t throw any packaging: all our boxes are given back to the producers. Our hens eat the occasional food waste.

We got the green Michelin star which promotes restaurants involved in a sustainable vision of gastronomy.

The restaurant

During your meal, you will be able to see the river Loire and its fauna.

A changing landscape, just as a daily season.

When you arrive in the restaurant hall, you come across a traditional kimono, Fumiko’s wedding gown.

Open kitchen, just like a theatre.

You can see cooks working, they have nothing to hide.

On the contrary, they only cook local ingredients, enlighted by the spectacular flames of the barbecue.
