A three-tiered fine dining experience like no other.
The luxurious lakeside establishment Le Planteur is a restaurant to rival any gastronomic experience in the world. Hidden away from the hustle of the city and situated on the serene shores of Inya Lake inside a stunning colonial house, the restaurant is an icon of Yangon life and in the upper echelons of international-standard fine dining.
Since joining the creative kitchen of Le Planteur in 2017, Executive Chef Jean Marc Lemmery has worked hard to add his unique flair to the menu. Having worked previously at the 3-star Michelin restaurant in Hotel Balzac in Paris and Sketch in London, Chef Jean Marc decided to open his own restaurant, l’Alycastre in 2004 and it was awarded a Michelin star the following year. Following on from this success Chef Jean Marc moved to Bali to open a hotel and restaurant, before finally finding himself in Myanmar and at the helm Le Planteur.
In the year since his arrival, Chef Jean Marc has helped develop the three-tiered experiences that La Planteur, culminating in “The 3 Ambiences” that the restaurant offers:
