They offer French cuisine, but do not limit themselves to this one because they like to work the spices of the world.

Their cuisine is healthy and balanced (they use organic fruits and vegetables, low temperature cooking and / or steam, …)
They work on fresh products, healthy and seasonal. As a reason, the card changes very often per the arrivals and the inspiration. The polar bear is the place where the traditional cuisine meets a more current cuisine made of products and flavors from far more distant horizons. All accompanied by good wines selected for their character, others for their complexity but each time for their elegance.
