An 18th-century hunting lodge, La Cascade is now an outstanding five star hotel with an award-winning restaurant. The magnificent dining room has elegant, hushed ambience with windows overlooking the river and falls both of which are flood lit at night. Formal attire is expected. Contemporary French cuisine is created with only the finest ingredients and local produce. Pigeon, duck, and other game are frequently on the menu, as well as beef, lamb, pork, and seafood. Choose from over 400 wines, and tour the impressive cellars.
Inside the Sheen Falls Lodge, the Cascade Restaurant is quite beautiful. The staff is very attentive, warm and professional, without being obsequious. However, be aware that the selection of food choices is not broad and the cost is absolutely outrageous relative to the value. My wife and I had one glass of wine each, shared the lobster starter (fabulous, by the way), each had a main entree, and split the souffle dessert (I think that was 25 Euros!) and the entire bill, with a 20% gratuity included, came to Euros 185! Over $200 for two people without a bottle of wine, and splitting the first course! We both concluded it was definitely in the league of New York pricing...and in a country lodge! Every other meal we had in town (Lime Tree, Mulcahy's, Packies, and others) were excellent cuisine at one half the price! And, for what it is worth, this menu never changes (we learned) except for the soup of the day.
Our overall assessment is that the hotel is a gem but the dining room is flawed. Save your money and eat elsewhere, and get much more for much less. By the way, we are real "foodies" and have dined well all over the world. This experience, from a gustatory standpoint was wonderful; but from a value-for-the-money position, it was (to be kind) extravagantly silly. If you need to impress someone with your largesse, then perhaps throwing this kind of money at a dinner-for-two make some modicum of sense. I personally doubt it and suggest "caveat emptor."
