This is not a casual restaurant. It's been on the Fifty Best Restaurants in the World list for many years, and it has three Michelin stars. It's also expensive. But it is worth every euro you spend. They do not have a set menu or even a written menu. Everything uses the freshest possible ingredients in the chef's own preparations,... More

We had one of our favourite dinners (out of 8 Michelin 3*s) at L'Astrance. It was a set menu with wine pairings. All the courses were very light and well presented. The first 3 courses were raw and very simple on sauces. The concept at L'Astrance is that 'you don't choose your meal if you go to a friend's house,... More

Cuisine: modern, yet with traditional touches--exquisitely prepared and presented Service: as you would expect (and hope!) from a Michelin 3-star, and also very friendly Cannot think of anything we didn't like--also the price is the least expensive for any 3-star in Paris--a bonus.

This was my second visit/ lunch at L´Astrance. Last time was three years ago and that was one of my top ten meals ever. This time it was just as good, if not better. Eating at L´Astrance needs some planning. They only receive bookings by phone. And you should book way ahead. (One/two months) What i really like about L´Astrance... More

The dining room is not particularly handsome, maybe it even needs a little updating. But we came to be wowed by the food, and boy were we! Every course was a great surprise or adventure, from the apple and mushroom napoleon to the duck three ways. The savory and the sweet are sequenced in a crescendo, one dish outdoing the... More

Eating here was a highlight of our two week '2nd honeymoon', and I agree with a previous reviewer that it was the best meal I've had in my life. We had the menu L'Astrance which amounted to about 7 or 8 courses in the end because extra delights kept coming from the kitchen. I loved the theatre of the plates... More

I came to L'Astrance with lot of expectations... 3 Stars Michelin are an important "certification of quality". It means that this restaurant should be among the best restaurants worldwide. When you pay 700 euros for a dinner (for 2 people) you of course are looking for an unforgettable experience! But does L'Astrance really have 3 stars? I can not understand...... More

Staying in Trocadero

Neighborhood Profile
Trocadero
This is the neighborhood of grand and impressive Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher, florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury and splendor, all with a view over Paris and its most famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings are small art galleries and homes of historical significance. With a rich legacy from 19th century politics, art, and architecture, you can’t help but be reminded of the belle époque, the Universal Exhibitions and the nobility that have frequented and shaped these streets.
