Grand Chef Relais & Châteaux Patrick Bertron describes his cuisine as from "the terroir, and has a strong French identity. I like to bring out the main ingredient in the dish, perhaps with a spice, but always very naturally and without any excess. A gourmand, straightforward cuisine, with special details, tiny nuances, surprises". Through rigorous research, culinary technique and experience Chef Bertron's restaurant Bernard Loiseau has been awarded three Michelin stars. 

Having completed his studies at Hotel Management School in Saint-Nazaire, and then spending two summer seasons on the coast of Brittany, he furthered his training in Rennes, with Marc Tizon. He joined Bernard Loiseau’s team in 1982, at the age of 20 and, learning about top quality produce and developing his culinary skills, he has earned a reputation as one of the world's best chefs.
