Always perfect

It is always a pleasure to come back. The food is good, the wine list is interesting with a reasonable price. The service is nice. The ris de veau were amazing and the sea food gaspachio was very tasteful. Try the sparkling sake for aperitive

Amazing place, hidden in a small street in 12th arrondissement - only few tables, with some 25-3° seats all together, hence the booking is necessary; Quite large menu of well imagined, perfectly cooked and nicely served dishes, with a mix of traditional French cuisine with modern twist and some chef's imagination, perfect and tasty - we had delicious frog legs,...

I have been coming to this restaurant for lunch for years and have always liked it. In October 2011 a Japanese chef called Eiji Doihara bought the place so any review before that date shouldn't be taken into consideration. It was good before but is excellent now although the wine is too expensive. The cheapest bottle of white wine, Sancerre,... More

Nice ingredients, nice preparation. Good result finally. Actually wines are a little bit expensive, but in line with the french market. Globally price per person a little high, but due to the quality provided and the chef involved. Nice experience.

Since I live in Japan, when I recently spent a couple days in Paris, a new Japanese friend and long-time Paris resident suggested this place. To be completely honest, if I hadn't known ahead of time that the chef was Japanese, the food alone might not have given it away--it was VERY French. But armed with that info, I was... More

Paris is not as big as you think. From my hotel in the 12th, Bercy district, a 10 minute taxi ride was all that was needed to get me to Le Sot L'y Laisse. My host, a foodstuffs exporter, made a reservation the week before, and we arrived at 1930pm on the appointed day and were the first guests for... More

We went the restaurant partly because it's well recommended and partly because I want to have some less rich but French dishes. We are absolutely happy to chose the restaurant which are mainly run by a Japanese chef who has been working for a well known French restaurant in Tokyo area and his wife. Fish dishes were fresh and not... More

This restaurant is very casual with little thought to decor and only one person serving the entire restaurant. The food, however, is wonderful as other reviewers have attested. This inbalance is awkward - clearly the reason for trekking out to this "far away" arrondisment for a visitor to Paris is for amazing food at a great value. But the decor... More
