It was my dream to eat at a 3 star Michelin restaurant, and my husband made that dream come true for my 50th birthday. I chose L’Ambroisie, and it lived up to my expectations. From the warm unintimidating welcome, to the beautiful comfortable dining room,...More

This place is truly one of the few genuine benchmarks of French food preparation. There’s no fancy food tricks and playful humour here, just experienced expertise applied to the best quality ingredients. It’s worth sacrificing multiple mediocre meals for one superlative meal here, that’s what...More

Once upon a time, there were two Paris restaurants so traditional, so formal, so austere that they would have made a Theresa May cabinet meeting seem jovial. They were Le Taillevent and L’ Ambroisie. No English menu. No English language. L’Ambroisie was rumoured to seat...More

The food at this restaurant is excellent and the setting lovely and genteel, but the reason this Michelin 3 star restaurant is getting 4 and not a 5 is that only a few of the dishes really knocked my sox off. This is a famous...More

I've dined at most of the three-star restaurants in Paris, and this falls short of the standard. The staff were gracious and helpful, but the excellence stops there. The first offering was a soft-boiled egg (in the shell, of course) with a dollop of caviar...More
