Stunning food.

This is the smallest of the Paris 3 stars...26 seats...and reasonably priced, at least for lunch. Stuck with the five course lunch menu at 70 Euros but added the truffle dish and glad we did as the celeriac based soup was beautifully judged. No actual menu [though they do ask about allergies] but... read more

I visited this restaurant with my boyfriend in January for dinner this year. We had really high hopes because we hadn't been to a 3 Michelin star restaurant before, only one or two, as we really enjoy visiting and trying different Michelin star restaurants. I didn't think it was anywhere near 3 Michelin stars... I paid over 500 euros for... More

In the past years, I always heard that this restaurant was fantastic... Well, it was quite a disappointment, I cannot remember one amazing or simply real one really good dish. The raw Paris mushroom and the foie gras in a millefeuille had no interest, the fish from Australia... (why the h&é@ do you go so far??? ) was tasteless. The... More

Fantastic restaurant. Tremendous clean flavors. A noticeable lack of oil and butter featured on the really inventive menu. Highly recommended - the 70 Euro lunch was enormous and good value if you like this sort of dining. It is very difficult to get a reservation though - I had to ring the first two days of the month prior to... More

I'm with the reviewer from California. This was the only place in France where I remember being given this kind of attitude from the waitstaff. Not at Le Chateaubriand. Not at Lasserre. Not at Bocuse. Not at Robuchon. Not at the humble bistros, bouchons, or winstubs (actually I did get attitude from an elderly winstub owner, but I liked that).... More

We have visited L´Estrange 4 times and always exceeds our expectations. The exquisite way to serve and mix the plates with an outstanding service just makes your stay memorable. Always great, always the best.

We went to Astrance for lunch. The food was excellent. There were quite a few courses for the lunch menu. First was the "signature" dish of mushrooms with foie gras. Then came the octopus with tomatos. We love octopus and eat it often in fine restaurants. But this dish was perfectly balanced with all the tastes. The third course was... More

What a curious experience, one I should never hope to repeat. Half a dozen years ago, I lived in the 16th arrondisement and would occasionally hear about a special restaurant just up above the Seine off John F Kennedy Avenue. When I knew I was traveling to Paris this year, I bought a book focusing on a food critic's choices... More

It is true that the restaurant does not look like a 3 stars Michelin restaurant. However, very fast, we love it because it is friendly, casual and cosy. We have ordered the lunch menu of 70 euros. The dishes were exceptional. The match of taste and creativity was exceptional. There were 2 courses of fish, they were delicious. I'm not... More

I'd lunch in L'Astrance yesterday and I really loved the food there. I chose the autumn menu with wine pairing at 230 euros. I could have settled for the lunch menu with wine pairing at 120 euros. However, since I'd made some efforts in order to secure a booking, I thought I should splurge a little bit. Before I ordered... 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.
