Getting much more expensive now, although there has been no corresponding improvement in the food. But still the loveliest terrace anywhere to dine. Dog friendly too.

This is my favourite restaurant in all the world. Not necessarily for the food, although it is always excellent, but for the beautiful outside space and the people watching. July and August attract many A Listers and whilst they probably do get special treatment - it really is not obvious. It was fun to sit on the next table to... More

Read about this place in a mag article featuring Bill Whyman who has a place nearby & sometimes dines there. Steeped in history with originals from Picasso, Matisse and others adorning the interior walls, Brigitte Bardot dropped by in in her hey-day up from Nice and Raymond Blanc was inspired to cook after visiting! Expectations high then, though dampened by... More

What an amazing hotel and restaurant. The art collection within the hotel lobby was an added treat to the beautiful terrace restaurant. Fresh vegetables, amazing salami and chorizo was just some of the delicious appetizers we started with. The steak with the blue cheese sauce my wife had was great and I simply loved the chicken dish I ordered. Will... More

We made a reservation in advance of heading to France for this restaurant since it's reputation precedes it so much. We were not disappointed. For art lovers, the hotel is steeped in history and I think if walls could talk these would have some excellent stories to tell. The service was excellent, everyone was very friendly and welcoming. We were... More

This is the best restaurant around St. Paul. The Food was delicious, the service was very good and we had a great time. Look out for famous people dining at the neighbouring table... Remember: book a table in advance...

This was our second visit to La Colombe D'Or - the first one being ten years ago. The hotel is unique with its history of art and culture. It has a class of its own but has retained the original feel of times gone by. The restaurant serves stunning French food . Breakfast in the sun on the terrace is... More

I last visited La Colombe D'Or in 1966 and had always wanted to return. Finally the opportunity arose and we managed, after a lot of difficulty, to book a table for lunch. All the four of our party had very good lunch but one is very much paying for the name and where you are rather than for the quality... More

Having heard good things about La Colombe d'Or, we decided to splurge and end our vacation in the South of France with one night using the half board package (accommodation, dinner and breakfast). This was a mistake. I hope by sharing our experience others will avoid this place - both the restaurant and the hotel. We feel we were ripped... More

The art work and history is what makes this restaurant an interesting place to eat. The food is average and the prices are over the top for the value. The presentation of the food is also average. The souffle was the best part of the meal. The house wine choice is also average and I don't recommend it. Spend more... More
