An out-of-the-box dinner

With just the date and directions to a secret, temporary location, you’ll make your way to our dinner party. Take your seat at the table beside unknown guests gathered together to interact, enjoy wine and succulent cuisine prepared by talented, local, self-taught chef, Marion du Poulailler.

Experience an evening full of surprises:

  • a (very) unusual place
  • a surprise menu
  • mystery guests


All gathered around the table for a semi-gastronomic dinner, equally surprising in its unexpected combinations of flavors that will astonish your tastebuds.

Ice Breaker The Fun Fact

Before the dinner, you’ll be asked to think of a funny story or an unknown or “fun fact” that describes you. This could be something crazy that happened to you, maybe a little known fact about yourself that others would find surprising, or perhaps an accomplishment, of which you are particularly proud, that you’d like to share with your fellow diners.

Examples :

  • I am a professional wrestler
  • I constructed a giant Eiffel tower made entirely out of matches
  • I dance just like Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing
  • I can imitate Renaud (?) singing Céline Dion

Experience an unexpectedly delicious diner!

What a lovely evening! We had everything we could ask for: perfect weather, great mystery guests, a feeling of being pampered as we explored Duingt castle and exquisite dishes to feast on. This unexpected dinner not only surprised but amazed me. One single regret: the evening went by too quickly.
