“A Presidential's Canteen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

On Dec 9, it was our third visit to Epicure in 2013. This gastronomical institution is designed for serious French gourmet connoisseur, nothing short of perfection as Fréchon’s cuisine exudes exceptional taste and refinement in French grand cuisine. Exquisite dishes such as the egg with caviar, langoustine with caviar and Bresse chicken poached in pig's bladder are executed in top class finish....simply amazing! Another notable individual in this restaurant is Laurent Jeannin, probably the best pastry chef in France. His priceless nyangbo chocolate is unforgettable.

“Genuinely, Bravo L'epicure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

L'epicure knows VERY WELL how to earn customers loyalty!
while really good & interesting food might be found anywhere within wide range of prices.. what makes l'epicure #1 restaurant in Paris on TA list is absolutely the classy yet very relaxed atmosphere & the friendly service.
Being welcomed by the star of the restaurant: Mr. Marco, and served by the nice & attentive Ms. Chloé we had a memorable moment & a warm birthday celebration.
Beautiful settings & views
tasteful decorations
delicious & beautifully presented food..... specially the appetizers at the beginning, Oh my God!

simply, my favorite restaurant in France so far.
Thank you L'epicure!

“Everything you expect from a 3 star restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Jacket is required to dine in. However, if you don't have one for whatever reason, Epicure will provide one.
We had the seasonal menu plus the signature dish of stuffed macaroni. Food is excellent from the very first bite to the last, every single detail is taken care of, eg, breadcrumbs on the table are cleared, stain on table cloth is covered. Servers are tentative.
Oh and i like the garden view.
Overall, very well deserve the price and the 3 star.

“A Memorable last night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

We dined here for our last night in Paris. Truly a decadent delight. I can see how they earned their Michelin star(s). Make reservations early for a good table and good waiter.
