We randomly found this place while walking around Place Vendôme. Our eyes were first caught by the several bottles of wine used for decoration, but not only. The wine list is clearly up to the promices. We were welcomed, advised and served with great care...More

We did a walk-in without a reservation, but they were extremely accommodating and welcoming. The service was both fast and friendly, and they all spoke English after we asked. We took the tasting menu, which was exceptional, and had a paired bottle of wine, which...More

I’m very sorry, but when I pay almost 60€ for a starter and a main, at the very least I expect not to go home hungry. The sardine starter had exactly 3 tiny sardines. The waygu beef, which was inexplicably chewy, was between 100 and...More

I clearly feel sorry you were disapointed with your experience. We defenetly put more focus on the quality of the ingredients rather than the quantity and if the size of the dishes are not huge, we defenetly think it is enough. I, nevertheless, respect if...More
