Description: 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

Second time to this restaurant, and this time with friends. It remains one of the most unique in terms of the space and food presentation I can remember. The food is spectacular, the wine list really good, the service impeccable. Our friends who were with us for five days in Paris said while all the meals were great, this is... More

First of all, the settings are overwhelming. The restaurant has such a great atmosphere and vibe, very stylish in an old-fashined way. For 55 Euros on lunch, this is definately a great value. Not only do you get 3 courses, but also coffee and petits-fours. The marinated fish I had for a starter was very good, but no more. The... More

We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and were delighted with the whole dining experience at this restaurant. The ambiance of the room, the staff, who are very attentive but not over the top. My husband doesn't eat pork and I don't eat any meat but I do eat fish. Once I explained this, the meals that were brought out... More

The food here was truly outstanding! I could not want for a better romantic meal in my favourite city. The negative side to this restaurant was the staff. They were not only unattentive, but slightly pompous. It was our first time to this restaurant, but not our first time to high end restaurants (as my partner is a head chef).... More

This is a beautiful and cozy restaurant tucked away in St Germain that was ideal for a romantic dinner for 2. It is not loud and busy like the brasseries but also not too fancy and formal like some of the other Michelin-starred restaurants in Paris with the same level cuisine as this. The food was superb, the service attentive... More

This was a great little place but unfortunately some of the elements of the courses weren't to our taste. However there was a great atmosphere and a romantic little place if you want a cosy meal.
