Mediterranean cuisine

Eat, drink & dance



Born on the 13th September 1964 into a family of wine-growers at Agde in the south of France’s Hérault region, the twins Jacques & Laurent Pourcel have, in a few shot years, become among France’s strongest ambassadors for French gastronomy.


In 1988, together with their close friend Olivier Château, they opened Le Jardin Des Sens in Montpellier, which will rapidly became one of the region’s gastronomical references. There, in 1998, they obtained their fabled 3rd star in the Guide Michelin, confirming them as one of the truly great restaurants in the world.


Their cuisine resembles them; Simple, modern and above all, creative. Two words come back constantly ‘Simplicity’ and ‘Product’. Their philosophy ‘no good cuisine without good products’. That is why they canvas the land, always looking for the right farmers and growers, fishermen and breeders, to discover, prepare and serve only the finest produce.



Jacques & Laurent Pourcel have entrusted Café Français’ kitchen to Bertrand Dubois, a Chef with a lot of character and innovation, a pure ‘Pourcel product’ who started his apprenticeship with the twins in Montpellier. From the Jardin Des Sens to Carré Mer and Terminal#1, Bertrand has excelled on his path mapped out by the two brothers.


In Colombo, Chef Bertrand Dubois executes the flavors from france's southern region with talent and dedication.  it includes a unique combination of flavors and quality with impeccably sourced produce from around the world.
