With its vegetal floor and its wooden furniture, the restaurant ONA – Origine Non Animale – stands out in Arès, a small town in the Arcachon basin known for its oysters and its hunters. Here, everything is vegan. This is what seduced the Michelin Guide inspectors, who intend to celebrate the diversity of culinary styles at ONA with this new star.
A success, but above all a great reward, for its chef Claire Vallée who, just a few years ago, obtained a doctorate in archaeology. However, after an introduction to the restaurant business in Switzerland, she was seized by her passion for cooking and gradually switched from mineral to vegetable. During a trip to Thailand, she discovered vegetarianism. Immediately seduced by this cuisine that respects humans, the environment, and especially animals, Claire Vallée decided to open a vegan restaurant.
