Les Climats is the perfect place to take a group of five when it's 75 degrees and pretty sunny; you sit in the garden, have great food, drink one of their zillion bottles (actually 8,500) of Burgundy (for 15-5388 €) and chill out.  Heaven it is.

Complaints however about the slowness of delivery of plates.
