It is at 37 rue Saint-Etienne des Tonneliers, a quiet little backstreet that runs parallel to Quai de la Bourse, that Gill has opened its "little brother". Linked to the main restaurant by a simple backyard, the two restaurants are not only close in terms of distance, but also in terms of character. Gilles and Sylvie Tournadre have entrusted the success of Le 37 to the capable hands of Gill's former sous-chef, Sylvain Nouin. The same principle when it comes to the food, but in a more minimalistic setting with a reduced menu and the focus resolutely on "world food". Le 37 customers can enjoy light dishes, such as the chicory and parmesan crumble, served with young spinach shoots in nut oil, the salmon mi-cuit in a light cream with pickles or the caramelised knuckle of pork with lemon.

Not so typical French food

The proprietor of our B&B recommended this restaurant and made a reservation for us. That was a good thing as it was full and others were turned away. We enjoyed the food because it was French, but with originality and twists of other cuisines. We had dishes that had Mexican and Asian influences... read more

I twice emailed my request for a dinner reservation and received an acknowledgement that I would receive a response shortly. I never received a response which is completely unacceptable.

Short selection of really good products cooked with mastery and a very fresh and unique twist. The dining room personnel was very nice even with our 2 year old who was clearly overexcited after a long trip. Selection could be wider, dining room could be bigger and wines could be less surcharged (typical French, though), but it could then also... More

I had noticed this in the Michelin Guide Rouge, and, as it was short walk from our hotel, thought we'd give it a try. I did call ahead to reserve (which I'd recommend) as it did fill up quite quickly. It's asmall room with only about 26 covers. Apart from us, it was all 'locals' a group of whom were... More

My husband claims this was one of the best meals he ever had and it was one of the best we had during our trip to France. The salmon tartare s divine and their fish dishes are suberb. I highly recommend this place. Excellent service. My husband got the pork piccata and loved it.

This small but delightful restaurant just up from the quay near Gallerie Lafayette was full the night we went, so booking ahead is essential. The staff were friendly and helpful. I had warned them that I couldn't eat lactose and there were a number of dishes available without compromising the flavours. There is a comprehensive selection of French wines, as... More

A small restaurant with a limited menu, but the food was divine and inexpensive for the quality enjoyed. The restaurant is small, about 26 covers and on the night we eat, no one spoke any English. However, we enjoyed a warm welcome even though we had not booked. I would describe the cuisine as modern French rather Normandy, but excellent... More

If you go to Le 37 do not expect a Normand menu, neither a large selection of dishes. The concept seems to be a quality selection 6 main dishes with prices that are convenient. Unfortunately no veggie dish. The food is abundant so I would recommend to choose between the starter+main or main+dessert. It's quite small and should be more... More
