Fantastic value lunch

Went for lunch with a group of friends. Had taken some preparation to get the reservation a month in advance. Had the lunch menu with wine flight which came to 130 euros a head. This included 4 courses with many cleansers and amuse bouche etc. Between. Probably had about 10 different things to eat... read more

I agonized for a long time over which 3 michelin star restaurant to choose for a special meal out in Paris with my husband. I liked that L'Astrance offered a menu made to order according to you preferences and the whims of the chef. I have a dairy allergy so despite the promises in the menu I called ahead of... More

FOOD bread: Basic and good.

Shrimp with seafood consommé. Shrimp from Surinam. Broth very similar to a non-spicy Tam Yum, making this a Tam Yum Goong. Excellent shrimp, nice... More

Possibly among the top 1 of restaurant meals I have had, ever. Cleverly saving the best for last, we had lunch at l'Astrance on our last day in Paris. It had rained all morning and my wife and I were soaked and crabby. A 3* lunch was probably the last thing we wanted. Nevertheless, in we go to a warm... More

While visiting Paris on our last trip we wanted to visit a 3 star Michelin restaurant with some French friends, together we chose L'Astrance. This place was a bit more relaxed than other 3 stars I have been to, they know how to have a bit of fun. The menu simple states, "The menu will be a surprise." Although in... More

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

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.
