This is alongside Gilbert Isaac La Fermette Marboeuf that Julien Montbabut learn the basics of traditional French cuisine after its formation in Hotel School Grégoire Ferrandi in Paris. He continued his career in fine dining restaurants as the Pavillon Ledoyen and Jamin with Benoit Guichard, then joined the chef Philippe Bélissent to Hotel, rue des Beaux Arts. After two and a half years as a deputy head Chef, in which the restaurant gets a Michelin star, he decided to try his luck at the Pavillon de la Grande Cascade, also distinguished by a Michelin star, where he was quickly promoted to Assistant Chief.At the age of 29, it is through the front door that Julien Montbabut made his return to Restaurant Hotel as a chef. He wants to offer classic French cuisine based on products and following the seasons. He highlights juices, sauces and seasonings.It brings a modern twist and a touch of lightness through its new and short seasonal menu, where you can find for example green asparagus,with caviar Alverta Imperial, Brittany Crab,with lemon & ginger, Duck foie gras with green apple. Under a canopy, the room looks like a private lounge, with its velvet armchairs, lampshades his accordion, mirrors and columns Empire style. The atmosphere is intimate, cozy and romantic. The restaurant opens onto a patio where you can have lunch or dinner on sunny days. It is decorated with a lovely fountain made to plans by Claude-Nicolas Ledoux.In addition to the à la carte menu, a day menu is available for lunch, and costs 45 € (starter, main course and dessert) or 55 € (starter, main course and dessert). For customers in a hurry, this menu can be served in an hour."I can resist everything except temptation"Oscar WildeC’est aux côtés de Gilbert Isaac à La Fermette Marboeuf que Julien Montbabut apprend les bases de la cuisine française traditionnelle après sa formation à l’école Hôtelière Grégoire Ferrandi à Paris. Il poursuit sa carrière dans de belles maisons comme au Pavillon Ledoyen et au Jamin avec Benoit Guichard, puis rejoint le chef Philippe Bélissent à l’Hôtel, rue des Beaux Arts. Après deux ans et demi à ses côtés, au cours desquels Le Restaurant obtient une étoile Michelin, il décide de tenter l’aventure au Pavillon de la Grande Cascade, également distingué d’une étoile Michelin, où il est rapidement promu chef adjoint. A 28 ans à peine, c’est par la grande porte que Julien Montbabut fait son retour au Restaurant de L’Hôtel en tant que chef. Il retrouve avec beaucoup de plaisir cette adresse culte de Saint-Germain-des-Prés, et aspire à opérer le changement dans la continuité. Il souhaite proposer une cuisine classique française axée sur les produits et les saisons, et mettre en avant les jus, les sauces et les assaisonnements. Il apporte un twist de modernité et un zeste de légèreté à travers sa nouvelle et courte carte de saison, où l’on trouve par exemple des Cuisses de Grenouille, bouillon d’ail rose, légèrement dorées, fregola sarda cuisinée au vert, des Ris de Veau, jus aux herbes, morille jumbo, vieux comté ou une Entrecôte d’Argentine, jus corsé au thym, cuite au sautoir, pomme de terre fumée.Sous une verrière, la salle a des allures de salon privé, avec ses fauteuils en velours, ses abat-jours en accordéon, ses miroirs et ses colonnes de style Empire. L’atmosphère y est intime, cosy et romantique. Le restaurant s'ouvre sur un patio où l’on peut déjeuner ou dîner aux beaux jours. Il est agrémenté d'une ravissante fontaine réalisée selon les plans de Claude-Nicolas Ledoux.Outre le menu à la carte, un menu du marché est proposé au déjeuner, au tarif de 45 € (entrée-plat ou plat-dessert) ou 55 € (entrée-plat-dessert). Pour les clients pressés, ce menu peut-être servi en une heure.« Je peux résister à tout, sauf à la tentation »Oscar Wilde

The Restaurant is tucked on an out of the way street in St Germaine and it is a gem. The setting is intimate, yet glorious, with a beautiful little fountain in the back that is totally charming and not at all cheesy. The service is perfect. The menu is a little daring, but the waiters were totally on board with... More

Took my partner here as part of a surprise trip to Paris, and chose this restaurant for the surprise menu, the location, the reviews and the pics. Very happy with the ambience, which felt very romantic. We both loved the anticipation of not knowing what the next course would be. Thoroughly recommended for a special night in Paris.

The food was perfect in taste, quality and amount. Seated in a small 'courtyard' , it felt summery and airy. Only downside was their presumption that we could not speak French and the presentation of an English version menu, also had to ask for the 3 courses for the price of 2 as advertised and the head waiter made it...

A long anticipated visit to this Paris restaurant turned out to be a major disappointment. We opted for the Chefs Choice with wines. The food was beautifully and artistically presented but a lot of it was bland and unexciting, really lacking flavour. The only dish we both really enjoyed was the crab, the rest were just mediocre. Definitely not deserving... More

We have visited many Michelin starred restaurants in Paris and other cities. This is the best. The ambience is perfect, quiet and exotic. The service is impeccable. And the food is extraordinarily good, complex, subtle and perfectly seasoned. It isn't cheap. But, given the exceptional quality of the food, it's exceptionally good value. And the atmosphere is wonderfully relaxed. We... More

We wanted a nice, multi-course, French meal. Our hotel was able to get a reservation for us here, and the dinner was simply amazing. We ordered the chef's tasting menu, which was the way to go. We ended up with more than 9 courses, several of which were paired with wine. The cuisine was more modern than I was expecting,... More

Staying in Les Halles

Neighborhood Profile
Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
