I first went here with my daughters three years ago. We always wanted to return and happily, we stumbled upon it again. Truffle- EVERYTHING. The scrambled eggs were awesome. The pasta as well. Throughly enjoyed it. Very friendly staff too.

I did not know that truffles could be preserved. They sell bottled black truffles from France and several products derived from them. Though at this time their good truffles are from Australia as France has summer truffles in July that are low on flavour and good only for salads etc.

We happened to wander in here during an afternoon stroll and made reservations for dinner. When got to our room we checked reviews on Trip Advisor and some were horrid. We had a fantastic meal which was absolutely delicious in every way. Virginie and Charles served us and were super hospitable. A memorable evening for sure.

What a find ! Recommended by my son, this is an absolute gem. The restaurant is quite small and dark, giving it a great ambiance .The waiters etc all very patient and polite, nothing was too much trouble and we had a child in tow and he was treated like a prince ! The food was wonderful, from risotto to... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant wandering our hotel neighborhood, and before going in we checked the reviews. I had mixed feelings given some of the reviews, but the scent was so enticing that we decided to give it a go. And I'm so glad we did! It's ALL about the truffle here. The truffle olive oil had such an intoxicating... More

I have visited this establishment many times which should be awarded an oscar for consistently exquisite dishes. This time I took the 19year old following our visit to the Henri Cartier-Besson exhibition and we just happened to be in the area. Considering it was after 3.30pm we were welcomed with open arms and yet another meal of truffe was demolished... More

This is a completely overated place... The black truffle is a scam as it is tasteless and with no smell they said it is from australia! 100euro per person for a value of 30 euro max. There is another maison de la truffle in paris we hope that its better than thia one....

If you like truffles then this is the place for you. A nice menu all featuring truffles (a choice of seasonal or black truffle). We had some excellent fois gras washed down with some good wine. Staff were helpful and service was swift. One of the better lunches I've had in a while. Their deli also sells all things truffly.

Good restaurant, truffles where delicious and was fairly good value. The menu is traditional french and a bit on the simple side bar the truffles themselves. Service was not 5 star but as expect. Would recommend for a decent truffle fix in the heart of Paris.

We booked this 1932 vintage restaurant based on TA reviews and its proximity to our Paris rental apartment. We scheduled it for a 12:30 lunch and found ourselves to be the second party in the restaurant. It never got busy. I have a feeling it is a supper type place. Wanting a light lunch we ordered the truffle omelette with... More
