“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Go here for a very special treat. Amazing décor, faultless service and food to die for.
Take advantage of the special deal for lunch. Less than half price of the dinner, hence fantastic value. A must for your bucket list

“Parisian experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

expectation were high, guy Martin being somewhat overexposed on French TV. Yet one of these moment you remember. Decor, service, and of course food & wine at its best, for a price in line with the market at this level

“Beautiful decor and service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

If you know about Relais and Chateaux hotels and restaurants, you will know that they are the best in the world. Le Grand Vefour is no exception. The decor of the restaurant was amazing; immediately making us feel special. No need to order "a la carte" as the "luncheon" is abundant. If you order a dessert, you will "die" as the desserts continue to be brought - not just those that your may order, but at least 10 compliments of the chef! We had a glass of the house champagne and it was superb as well. Loved this beautiful and historic restaurant.

“Perhaps the most beautiful restaurant in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

This is the 7th time I have eaten at this outstanding restaurant over the past 30 years. Each time has been memorable. I have been there when it was a three star and a two star. The decor is
unique and the atmosphere is a very happy one with much light and color.

It is a special occasions place and a real pleasure to dine there.

“A truly wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

I don't normaly write reviews, but today is an exception, we have just had a most superb lunch, I don't want to say it was the best ever meal, the best ever service or the best ever location, all three were excellent, but it was the most relaxing lunch we have had in any top restaurant... Ever! welcoming, friendly, relaxing, attentive, though not overly. The waiters made you feel it was about you and not them, they were confident, but not above themselves, dinning as it should be, a wonderfully relaxing experience with excellent food.
