In 2010 - We booked this restaurant to be the highlight of our trip to Paris - a very special occasion. The setting was magnificent, however we were left feeling very flat when our breadrolls arrived at room temperature and not warm. This was closely followed by the waiter pouring our champagne while holding the neck of the bottle. When... More

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. Sure its not cheap, but the viewers who make that an issue kinda miss the point. Paris is not cheap and this is a very famous 2 star restaurant in a very expensive hotel. What do... More

It is not cheap, but the quality of food, service, and in a way, showmanship is like going to a Broadway show, thus, worth it. Walk around, inside, outside, everywhere, to see what the big deal with this place is.

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.
