From the atmosphere in the main dining to the wine list and the service, amazing! Everything you see, touch or drink is accurate. Great work on the wine list! We'll be back!

L'Astrance is a small and charming restaurant near the Eiffel Tower. The dishes that Pascal Barbot come up with are creative, appealing to the eyes and orgasmic the taste buds! In one instance, the tastes and flavors were so familiar yet unique and a second later I'm happily perplexed how the combination of of these tastes created wonderful sensations in... More

After visiting L'Astrance 2 times before - I was eager to bring my parents here on their first trip to Paris. While my mom is a picky eater & vegetarian, I called ahead to let them know that we would have 1 diner that was vegetarian. I feel like that was the kiss of death. I've raved about the food... More

Every little sauce, every slice, every technique. It's all perfect and, with one exception, not able to be imitated at home. From the first tiny shortbread with a slice of apple to the potato icecream, every course is a surprise and very detailed. The only strange touch, to me, was a fruit plate to finish, slices of crunchy persimmons and... More

My third experience in 3 years at L'Astrance. It is consistently quite good while there are some issues with the menu and some dishs just do not meet the high expectattions you may expect it is still a fine establishment. I would not have any heitation in returning it remains one of the better dining options in Paris.

Unexpectedly alone after my wife had to return to Australia at short notice on a family matter I went with some trepidation. I have schoolboy French but they happily spoke English and were incredibly nice to me. The sommelier came and saw me and told me there was no Wine List- I was looking at it- it was in his... More

It was our second diner in l'Astrance (first in 2009). We had the degustation menu with adjusted wines and this proved again to be a winner. Moreover, some of the classical dishes of Pascal Barbot were added to this menu (the millefeuille de champignons de Paris). It again proved to be a diner with combinations of different tastes and flavors... More

数日前、4人(日本人3人+欧米人1人)でこちらのお店を昼食で訪問しました。食事は大変素晴らしく、さすがミシュラン三ツ星といった所でした。ですが、ウェイターとソムリエから受けたサービスにあまりにもショックを受けたのでこちらに投稿します。顛末は以下の通りです。 こちらのレストランでは昼食も夕食も基本はコースのみで品数だけを選択できます。大変素晴らしい前菜と魚料理の後、肉料理がサーブされたのですが、我々がどの肉か聞いた際この出来事はおこりました。 「鴨でしょう?このお肉」と聞いた際、ウェイータのチーフとウェイターは「how was it called, INU??(なんて言うんだっけこのお肉、いぬ?(◀︎ここは日本語で))」とお互いに我々の目の前でサーブする際に言い合った後、日本語で「いぬ。いぬ。」と答えました。その返答に驚いた我々が、英語で何度も本当に犬の肉かと聞き返したにも関わらず、彼らは「犬、犬」と日本語で答えました。 ですが、我々の同席者の欧米人が我々の発言に驚き「what is this meat, you can tell me in english(英語で私に言ってよ、なんて言うお肉なの?)」と何度も聞いたにも関わらず、それに対しては決して答えず、日本語で我々日本人にのみ、その後「子犬」と言うなど、まるで日本人に対してのみ用意された悪質なジョークを繰り返されました。最終的にウェイターは「鴨だよ(it's duck)」と一言だけ言い放った後テーブルを離れました。 こちらのシェフは和食からのアイディアを多大に受けており、かつ日本人のお客様が我々以外にも多々いらした事、日本の方からのこちらのレストランへの投稿が多々ある事からも、日本人がいかにこのレストランの食事を愛しているかが分かるにも関わらず、我々がこのような扱いを受けるようないわれを受け、かつまるで我々日本人限定のこの悪質なジョークを受けた事に憤りを受けたのでこちらの投稿します。 (我々よりも、欧米人の1人が大変憤っておりました。食事限定で言えば、ぜひとも再訪したいレストランです。ですが、このようなサービスを受けるのであれば、行きたくはありません。そして私たちは我々がこの悪質なジョークを受けた最初の日本人ではないであろうと考えています。)

We would like to thank Pascal and his wonderful staff for the most beautiful birthday lunch we have ever experienced. We really appreciated their patience and good humour due to our unexpected late arrival. We were treated with respect and exceptional service. Each course and matching wine surpassed the next and was an absolute delight. We will be raving about... More
