If service in Paris is like a nose stricken with the flu--stuffed-up and snotty--then Origine comes across like a long breath of fresh air. The young and energetic staff were courteous, humorous, helpful and attentive. The sommelier's recommendation of a white Corbières (over pricier white Burgundies) was not only excellent value, but perhaps the best wine of our two week... More

The food was perfect, but our party of 5 was one of the first to arrive and one of the last to be able to leave. A bit to long time between the 10 couses and a very slow service to give us the bill (it should be easy to divide it in 5 equal parts) and even we had... More

We had a delightful lunch and initially found it difficult to choose between the tempting options on the menu. Eventually we settled on the 4-course degustation, with our expectations set quite high. Those expectations were promptly blown out of the water by perfectly executed and inventive cooking of delicious local produce. That meeting of widened eyes over the amuse-bouche (fish... More

When I found that Gill was closed for the month of August, I picked this restaurant after reading other reviews. I am very glad I did. My family dined here during our stay in Rouen and greatly enjoyed our meal. We chose the 9 course degustation menu. Each course was well thought out and balanced, and not so complicated that...

In our experience Rouen is not a city that sets the gastronomic pulse racing and in being tempted to give Origine a try expectations were measured. We decided on the 9 course menu "Origine" as the dishes appealed to both of us and was temptingly constructed. It turned out to be a popular choice with other diners as well. What... More

Really one of the best of the city. There is a chef behind this and he knows his job. Great talent, nice presentation, excellent wine. Expensive? Doesn't matter.

Amuse bouche, foie gras with breads, cauliflower chilled soup with grape sorbet, crab roles, cheese plate and desert. It restored my faith in French food. All was absolutely delicious and well made. I Loved every dish. Gorgeous presentation. Definitely a have to try... More

Our first meal after a 12 hour intercontinental flight was in this Michelin starred restaurant. We still had our luggage with us from the station before checking in our hotel after lunch. I opted for the business lunch menu for its light fish & vegetable dishes while my wife opted for just a main course from a la carte. In... More
