Merci pour nous avoir fait savourer le goût de la perfection.

I usually eat where the locals eat when I am traveling, but since my host mentioned that Restaurant de 'lHotel De Ville was one of the best in the world and had a Michelin star, I happily obliged to accompany him to dinner. The menu is out of this world! Every dish that passed by our table was a thing... More

... And him and his team deserve it fully. Benoît Violier and his team have invented a new dimension to the extraordinary "culinary and senses experience" that they re-invent every night. Every detail is carefully orchestrated. My girlfriend and I have simply lived the best dining experience of our lives. Just like visiting Le Louvre or Musée d'Orsay in Paris,... More

This is the best Michelin 3 star chef and restaurant I have experienced. It was the best meal I have ever had.

A 9 course meal every one absolutely top, service excellent !! What more can you say . I can recommend this restaurant as something out of the ordinary, take a look in the kitchen, it looks like an artisan work shop and so do the dishes that come out.
