We made a special trip to paris with the specific intent of going to L'astrance recently. ~ Getting a reservation ~ Contrary to a lot of reviews on the internet, getting a booking was far from impossible. I called 2-3 minutes before opening on the first business day the month before. I got through immediately and found suitable dates on... More

This is our 2nd time having lunch over a 1yr gap and overall, the food, service, ambiance and environment was superior and memorable. The only small feedback would be a major revamp of the menu should be in the works. Both times, we had the 5 course meal and ate almost (70%) the same food as our last holidays in... More

We had an outstanding experience at L'Astrance. We were seated at a beautiful table on the upper level. The service was perfect - attentive, but not hovering. The menu was fixed and the pace at which the courses were presented was perfect. A nice wine list - the sommelier could have been more helpful though. We would recommend L'Astrance very... More

It seems that a meal at a three Michelin star restaurant in Paris should be one of the best in the world. Not quite. The setting here is wonderful and we were seated at an amply-sized table upstairs, where there are only two tables. We sat there, amazed at the beauty of the surroundings, anticipating a wonderful experience. The problems... More

We have a reasonable experience with fine dining in the US, and the meal we had at L'Astrance was in a class with the very best--Per Se, Benu, Le Bernardin. We were asked one question by the impeccable staff as we sat down: "Is there anything you don't want to see on your plate?" From there began a procession of... More

One of the best culinary experiences ever! Exceptional down to the very last detail. We booked a table five weeks in advance, ordered the three course lunch and it did not disappoint. We thought there was an error because new dishes kept being presented - seemed like much more than a three course meal. Everything was just lovely - highlight... More

L'Astrance is a restaurant worth the time to carefully make either lunch or dinner reservations well in advance of your visit. Once there, enjoy the well thought out courses and definitely opt for the wine pairing with your meal. There are many photos of L'Astance's signature dishes online. My favorite was the first course paper-thin cut white mushroom layered with... More

Staying in Trocadero

Neighborhood Profile
Trocadero
This is the neighborhood of grand and impressive Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher, florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury and splendor, all with a view over Paris and its most famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings are small art galleries and homes of historical significance. With a rich legacy from 19th century politics, art, and architecture, you can’t help but be reminded of the belle époque, the Universal Exhibitions and the nobility that have frequented and shaped these streets.
