We had dinner here and it was one of the best meals we've ever had. Fantastically inventive Asian-inflected modern French cooking that looked as good on the plate as it tasted in the mouth. Go for the tasting menu and the wine pairings - I...More

We had an unbelievably elegant and tasty haute cuisine dinner in this really pretty spot on rue Hauteville in the 'happening' 10th arrondissement. The restaurant was recommended by friends who live on the street. What a find! EELS is named after a signature dish of...More

The restaurant ticks off all the boxes; pitch perfect modern French cuisine, comfortable professional service, engaging decor and lighting, good wine program, all at a fair tariff.

Was recommended this place by a local friend. The service was great, and the atmosphere was a nice mix of fancy but relaxed. The food was mixed. We didn't love the appetiser, but our mains were good. However, both my friend and I ended up...More

As has been stated before the staff here are excellent . With a picky group of customers they were willing to explain the menu and cater for diverse tastes . The menu was great value and the food delicious . The smoked eel was divine.
