Got in late to Paris and looked for a restaurant near my hotel with a work colleague. Stumbled across this restaurant and so glad we went in. Staff were great - professional, prompt efficient service and able to offer good advice on the food. We had the chicken bites and crispy coated cheese for starters and the rossini for mains....

I love truffles. That goes without saying because this place is ALLLLL truffles! Probably the best meal we had in Paris. Of course, only go here if you like the taste of truffles but the meals are excellently cooked to perfection and the service is good as well. Decor was pretty formal as well.

We had lunch and later this week diner here. One of our best food experiences we ever had. Worth every penny. Great staff with excellent knowledge of the wines and food (special thanks to Catalina and Julien). Especially the truffle 5 course menu we had with dinner was unforgettable. Highly tasteful and well portioned. The starter, the egg, the meat... More

We stumbled on this restaurant by chance and were immediately interested as we love truffles. On opening the door we were greeted by the aroma of truffles and a wonderous selection of truffle goods in the shop which was part of the restaurant. Unfortunately we were early and the restaurant was not open for another hour, but we decided to... More

We love aromatic truffles so whenever in Paris try to have a lunch at Maison de la Truffe. The dining room atmosphere is simply elegant, allowing the food to be the center of attention. Service was helpful and personable. We tried to select dishes that really allow the truffles to shine, including white fish, creamed pasta, rocket salad. Generous slices... More

I've always wanted to eat here, and finally had the chance. I ordered the black truffle risotto, my husband ordered a black truffle pappradelle. I had to savor every bite, it was the most flavorful dish I have ever had. If you ever get the chance to go to Paris, try any of the dishes here and consider yourself lucky... More

Overall good food, prepared well, just not what we had hoped it would be. Service started out great but somewhat non-existent during a good portion of the meal. Meals at the restaurant have 4 prices, without truffle, with seasonal truffle, with black truffle, and with white truffle. Each one increasingly more expensive. All of our dishes were with the seasonal... More

I love truffles, so this meal was absolutely amazing. I had a hard time telling the different between the black and white truffles honestly, especially towards the end of the meal when my taste buds felt like they gotten used to the truffle taste. But the whole experience was excellent. The ambiance was upscale, clean and romantic. The servers were... More
