We were nicely welcomed to this charming and beautifully decorated restaurant. We where served a glass of champagne and got the menu presented. We had the chef's five course menu with wine. The food and service was divine. This restaurant is really recommended for a special occasion.

Got a table in the courtyard, which is very cute. Had the chef's five course meal, and every dish was amazing! Good portions, well presented and very tasty. The staff managed well with communicating with us in English too. Would strongly recommend visiting.

We had the Chef's Surprise along the selected wines and found each course to be perfect -- from the visual aspect to the actual taste -- the meal was impeccable. The staff was also extremely professional and kind. The chef created a special cake upon request for our 50th birthday celebration.

Restaurant is absolutely great. Food was excellent, ambience is very classy, yard seating just great, service very friendly and efficient. I had sweetbreads and it was probably the best I ever had, my wife tried squad and liked it too. Vine list was very good and we received excellent advice from your waiter.

This was a fantastic anniversary dinner in Paris. The service was absolutely meticulous and the food was phenomenal. Prices are definitely very high, but this met our expectations going in as well as the quality of the food, service and atmosphere. The only disappointment was the pre-meal bread was not particularly fresh nor tasty as would be expected from such... More

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.

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.
