Incredible experience.

Had a spectacular lunch here whilst on holiday. Sola is tucked away a few blocks from Notre Dame, and is worth seeking out. You can only order one of the tasting menu options when dining here, but not a single one of the courses disappointed. Everything was perfectly portioned, and it felt like... read more

This was a night to remember. They called it a surprise menu and the food was just amazing. We had a few dinners at Michelin star restaurants around the world and the chef in Sola deserves two or three stars!!!!. What an experience. We LOVED it. Thank you for an unexpected surprise.

This was food cooked, presented and served with care We had the lunch menu- no choices, but modification to cater for my allergy without any problems. We had a bottle of Sancerre and really enjoyed our meal, which represented good value for Paris (around 165 EUR for 2)

We had the fixed lunch menu. Simply wonderful from the first bite of the amuse bouche all the way to the dessert. Inspired infused food with layer upon layer of nuances that his the mouth first then make their way to the olfactory senses. Sublime!

The website for this restaurant doesn't do justice to the incredible dining room downstairs (ask for table downstairs to get the full effect). You take off your shoes and are given slippers. I was wary I might have to contort myself into a cross legged position but it's very smartly done (you'll see!). Service was perfect, and food was exquisite.... More

Everything was done so well, the service was impeccable, the food was amazing each course was a work of art and the flavors were exceptional as was the wine that matched the courses, Chef Yoshitaki Hiroki and his team are fantastic. One of the best meals ever, thank you.

Staying in Odeon / Saint-Michel

Neighborhood Profile
Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this area is second to none; the Haussmann-style boulevards are contrasted by monumental architecture and overshadowed by the iconic Notre Dame, all within a moment’s walk from the Seine. This neighborhood's world-famous bookshops, cafés, and streets will not fail to impress you.
