Oh. My.word

Eat here. No, really. Eat here, and have the tasting menu. It's the best option price wise (yes it's a lot, but it includes wine and eight courses). The entire menu looks amazing, so how do you choose? You don't. Let the chef choose for you. You won't be disappointed. If I could have licked my... read more

We were given a recommendation to have lunch at La Barbacane and decided to try it out for a birthday treat. The set lunch is 38 euros including wine, water and coffee. The dining room is beautiful and atmospheric with excellent, friendly staff. The set menu offers good choices, including for vegetarian diners. The birthday girl received a lovely little... More

We ate here for dinner ahead of going down to watch the fireworks on Bastille day. The food was based on a set menu with wine, amuse bouche and palate cleansers all included. The menu was worth of a Michelin Star and the setting is great with some of the best views from the cite walls. The restaurant lacks the... More

Delightful food, beautifully presented. As we stayed for six days, it would have been even better if there had also been a main 'dish of the day' occasionally, perhaps.

It has a Michelin star and it deserves it. The restaurant is in a stunning room , the service is very polite and the food is all you would hope for. Yes it is not cheap but it is very high quality with expensive ingredients and presented beautifully. If you want to balance the budget go for one of the... More

The place and location are awesome as well as the staff! A little bit disappointed by the food that didn't surprised me but was "just" excellent.

This meal was included as part of a tour, the restaurant is fine dining, with exquisite presentation, but just too many ingredients for me. The staff were very attentive and clearly very well trained.

This is a Michelin starred restaurant, beautifully appointed and situated in the Hotel de la Cite. and while the food was acceptable, the service was absolutely awful.. We had to constantly ask for water and wine when we could actually get the attention of a waiter. The restaurant was far from full and there were many waiters. it was a... More

The restaurant is situated in L' Hôtel de la Cité and overlooks a pleasant garden that has lovely views of the ramparts, towers etc of La Cité. The building is impressive as is the cuisine! The meal, made using local produce, was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. The staff were all really pleasant. The menu changes regularly and is... More
