If you expect L'Espadon to be almost over the top in every respect you'd be right! It's a flawless in it's presentation, food and service. Expect attention with style, food with panache and a wine list to match. It's memorable for everything and forgettable for nothing. Bon appetit!

With two Michelin stars this restaurant should be special and it really is. It does stand up to its billing though, which is important.

L'Espadon at the Ritz in Paris has two-Michelin stars. On a special-deal return fare of just £69 with Eurostar I wanted a treat to remember before I began a much simpler, economical way of life. I was prepared to spend £3-400 because I knew the first starter on the a la carte menu was a blue-lobster dish for 110 euros;... More

We were there during a big fashion show. The restaurant had a large party from the show and they were very entertaining. It's very expensive but we knew that.

My wife celebrated her 50th Birthday recently (Not that she will be happy I have told everyone) I decided to take her to the Ritz in Paris with it being a special one. With all its charm and splendour it certainly did not disappoint. We were fortunate to dine in the L'Espadon restaurant, from stepping through the door until our... More
