Sola is an impressive restaurant sits in the middle of Paris and need to make reservation months ahead in order to go. Restaurant as such makes it exciting when the day of your reservation finally arrives. And without disappointment, this is one of the must visit restaurant when you are in Paris. The creative team is lead by Chef Hiroki... More

This place is amazing. It starts already with the seating arrangements. If you are to be seated downstairs you would have to wear some spacial 'chaussons' then you are directed to the tables that are nicely built into the floor (still with some legroom:)). There are only two menu options : 6 or 8 dishes. Less is definitely more here.... More

Minimalist and modern decoration with Japanese atmosphere, good asting menu with some hits and misses but overall good. The dimsum soup with foie gras was excellent, the pork was the best I ever had. Can't really remember the rest. Very good service but toilets were not very clean (must be a Parisian thing). Overall a pleasant dinner with some strong... More

you do not come here to eat. you come here to be entertained. how do you describe french-nippon fixed menu cuisine? each course was presented with such aplomb (i lost count after 8 courses). you must savour each course differently for each one forces your taste buds to dance. portions are small but there are so many you will leave...

We were a group of 5. We ordered the smaller tasting menu. It's French-Japanese fusion. No regrets even though we had to search for the location with the help of map. Everything was good, from the food to the service. I recommend this. They definitely deserve their Michelin rating. Thumbs up! Reservations is a must as dining tables are very... More

This is a fusion between French and Japanese food, apparently the first restaurant offering such a style. We got a table downstairs under the vaults in stone. I missed windows but this is supposed to be the charm of the place. The menu is a surprise one, you just need to state if you have any allergies or if you... More

French-Japanese fusion is usually far more impressive than what we tried at Sola. The portions were far too small to enjoy and decipher between flavors and I'm sorry to say but nothing was challenging or new or original in terms of taste. Everything was lovely to eat and the presentation exquisite but not exceptional enough for a €250 bill for... More
