Wonderful little corner in Paris city center with a fabulously delicious cuisine, acceptable prices and great service. Their soufflé is delicious!

We happened upon this restaurant by accident, but what a lucky break it was. We had a marvellous meal in intimate but friendly surroundings. The meal wasn't extensive but there was enough to choose from and we had three lovely courses each at a reasonable cost for a Michelin starred restaurant. If you do go do yourself a favour and...

Being an American, I have little intimate knowledge of French cuisine. When the AirBnB I was staying at just down the street has me pass in front of this unassuming restaurant front, there was something in the name n the sign that rang a bell. So being who I am I asked my best friend Google and lo and behold... More

Best food and best value of entire trip!! It's truly a hidden gem! We wanted close to Eiffel Tower and walked there afterwards when the lights were on. Magical.

We have had many fine dining experiences in Paris, but this small restaurant near the Eiffel Tower (and just a block away from the much better known Fontaine de Mars) has become a favorite for my wife and I. Founded by the former chef for the American embassy, this restaurant offers fine food at what feels like a bargain price.... More

The servers were nice and the meal was OK, but what I UNFORTUNATELY remember most was viewing the kitchen staff from my table seat. Usually that would be a good thing, but their noses were running and they kept wiping their noses on either their sleeves or on the back of their hand. Not appetizing! Blow your nose, WASH YOUR...

Although this well appointed restaurant looks inviting from the street,it simply does not deliver when it comes to the food. The meal started badly with cold limp gougeres. The crab salad with avocado was pleasing to the eye, but devoid of flavor: as were the sautéed girolles. The duck had to be sent back because it was served cold. The... More

My wife and I have been in Paris for 5 days and have eaten several places, most leaving us unsatisfied and below our expectations for what French Culinary can be. Then we found Phillipe Excoffier. This is not a restaurant that can be found simply from walking around. This is a place you seek out, and are thankful for once... More

My husband and I recently visited this restaurant for dinner. It was our last night in Paris, and we were staying close by, which was a nice bonus. We arrived early (by European standards) 7:30, on a Tuesday and there were only 2 other tables filled that early. One was with a tourist couple like ourselves and the other appeared... More

The dishes were well presented. Timing of dishes could be worked on. I was the only one in the restaurant as I have arrived early on a weekday evening. I ordered shrimp tartar for appetizer. It was light and refreshing. My main dish was cooked and sitting on countertop when I was only half way through my appetizer. My main... More

I claim classic dishes, temperament and French technique, simmered kitchen, cleverly relieved of sauces, a kitchen that loves all products, market products and seasonal guiding the development of my card. I work cooking, treats each product with its specificities. The butter is played sparingly to keep only its nutty aromas, flavors are enriched broths and sauces, nothing is lost to the water fungi that enriches a sauce. Any excuse to magnify tastes. My lobster casserole is a bisque with cognac, slightly saffron, accompanied by vegetables from the market. My smoked bass with fennel arrives in a small casserole dish in which he has captured all the flavors of the vegetable and fresh thyme. The artichoke barigoule welcomes a truffle grated tatin artichoke and truffle juice is creamy and tasty dishes ... Buildings by associations of flavors and textures vie subtlety and simplicity. Side desserts, millefeuille with berries shows the perfection of the foliation and the greedy softness of a cream with vanilla and Grand Marnier souffle, such as caramel, sweet is my signature to which nobody can resist!
