My family of four had high expectations for this supposedly Michelin-rated restaurant located in a great neighborhood, surrounded by excellent restaurants. Unfortunately, the service was underwhelming (when the restaurant got busy, we were literally forgotten about). That said, the staff was very friendly and respectful. Most disappointing was the food. Compared to Spring (see other review), the food was average.... More

We enjoyed Pottoka (the innovated little Basque inflected restaurant out back), that we decided to splurge and give Les Fables a try. We sat outside and had a wonderful meal.

An absolutely impressive restaurant which totally lived up to all expectations. The food was excellent and preparation and presentation superb. I was very surprised at the prices as they were lower than I expected for a restaurant serving such fantastic delicious and tempting food. We had an 18 month old child with us and although the restaurant did not have... More

They have this 35 euros lunch menu during the weekdays and one glass of wine is included!!! For a one star Michelin restaurant, it's quite a steal, isn't it? More amazingly, the lunch menu changes every week! ^_^

A fabulous and elegant seafood restaurant created by celebrity chef Christian Constant and now owned/managed by a protégé that is just a few doors down rue St. Dominique from Constant’s trio of Le Violon d’Ingres, Les Cocottes and Café Constant. This is a quite couples place where reservations are a must. Seafood is the main attraction and our Yellow Fin... More

This is a great restaurant for the serious foodie. It was creative, beautiful, and the flavors were exceptional. The service was very friendly with an English speaking staff, which helped with the interpretation of the various options. It was expensive, but worth it. Fish rules, only one meat dish on the menu. If you are looking for creative, beautifully executed,... More

This was the third time we ate at Les Fables. The food is still very good but on a hot day there's nothing more terrible than an glass of luke warm champagne. The bottle of white wine we ordered was also not cole enough although the waiter did his very best to try and cool it. This is something to... More

We visited this restaurant with friends who live in Paris. The food was good and service nice, but the prices exceptionally high not only for what you get, but also for the quality of food. Food very good, without a doubt, but not, in my view, exceptional, in any way. Wine prices are rather high, and portions rather small.

This is a small restaurant near the Eiffel Tower. Due to the limited seating, reservations are necessary. The cuisine is mainly seafood, beautifully prepared. The service is top notch. I love this place!
