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

each meal of the 8-course dinner, with its associated wine, was perfectly presented, delicate and an explosion of subtle savors. Staff is extremely attentive, pleasant and simple.

I was impressed by this restaurant from the outstart. The decor is quite nice and the restaurant, albeit slightly more select, is welcoming. There are several set menus at lunch time in addition to a la carte. They were very accommodating for people in our party who had allergies and other dietary requirements. The service was with a smile and... More

We were with business partners and had to reschedule a late dinner to an early and short dinner. The flexibility and friendliness with which our difficult and volatile requirements were accommodated are exemplary. But that was only the start – then came the food. Too often one experiences obligatory trendy creativity that results in a pure cacophony of tastes, textures... More

My husband treated me to this restaurant for my birthday while we were in Rouen and it was a magnificent meal and evening. We chose the five course degustation menu and every course was delicious, the right size, and beautifully presented. The waiting staff were attentive and helpful, and brought out my desert with a candle and chocolate writing on... More

We had an exceptional lunch here whose prix fixe price was only about 30 euros. The same meal in Paris would be much more expensive. The personable and ambitious owner has real creative flair. Though the restaurant in new in the last couple of years, it already a Michelin star -- which seems well deserved. Decor is quite chic and... More

We went to this wonderful restaurant with our friends last weekend and had went for the Menu Dégustation. Each of the 7 courses were better than the last! I would recommend having the sommelier match the wine to each of the course for you. The service was wonderful, attentive but unobtrusive.
