The place was dark and purplish in color, which created a very nice and elegant ambience for diners. The food was good and service quick. A good place to dine at.

The service was good. Menu very creative and well executed. Michelin standard. Low lighting. Good view at night at of Eiffel Tower from table near window. Not unreasonably priced for standard of food.. Didn't like the purple decor! Liked the food and wine and the presentation of food.
