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.

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 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).

After some carefully reviews, we decided to chose Le Restaurant for our anniversary dinner. The restaurant is a little difficult to find. Near Pont des Arts, tugged inside a boutique hotel. We asked for the outside seating and it was one of the best, near picture perfect for a dining experience. The food was amazing and the price was reasonable.... More

Dry Martini very well put together. Lobster ceviche starter was simply beautiful, wine was surprisingly well priced, loved the armchairs and the ambience, will certainly try to visit again. Staying at Le Bristol then coming to L'Hotel for cocktails and dinner - doesn't get much better than that.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Le Restaurant. It's so great when you can spend a few hours enjoying a meal that combines delicous food with truly-artistic plating.

We went to Le Restaurant for lunch: one of the three fine dining restaurants we ate at for my birthday! Go there and see for yourself, it's just perfect!

Had a very good meal here. Everything was delicious, interesting ..and there were no 'mistakes' (exaggeration, awkwardness etc).. Delicious snail dish, delicious fish, surprising sea urchin. Well presented. Good service. Nice small, very cozy, room. If I had to give one criticism it would be the (patagonan?) beef; it was of the very long cured variety that makes it less... More

We treated ourselves to Le Restaurant when in Paris for the weekend. The five course chef's menu is fantastic and well worth the money. For me the best point was the restaurant itself, full of atmosphere and really relaxing. I would highly recommend!

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.
