Yes, you can get a complete 3-course souffle dinner, but do bear in mind that the individual souffles are quite large, and runny or gummy inside. That's a lot of undercooked (?? Was that the problem?) eggs. The food presentation, however, is nice, and we liked the layout with the open front room and quiet back room. This experience would... More

Run , quick ...before you leave Paris and dine at this amazing "soufflé " Restaurant . First and foremost you will want to make reservations because it is a small , cozy yet very welcoming place that fills up quickly. We went twice in one week that's how good it was. They had a prix fixe menu as well as... More

My wife and I went to Paris 9 years ago and found this restaurant then. We loved it so much, it was the only "must do again" on our recent return in June. It didn't disappoint and was still a great restaurant. The soufflés are superb and it is fun to get a soufflé for all 3 courses. Staff is... More

Unparalleled deliciousness. We loved every bite of every souffle we had. The asparagus appetizer was so velvety. The chicken & mushroom souffle was wonderfully rich. There were 3 of us - we had chocolate, raspberry & white chocolate creme brulee for dessert. Although they were all yummy, the chocolate was out of this world.

This is the third time I've been there. This time we took our grandchildren. Except for salads, the entire menu is souffles and they are excedllent. We walked without a reservation on a weekend afternoon and were given a table right away although the place was full the whole time we were there. The souffles are huge and one can... More

Our family of 5 went here for lunch before visiting the Louvre. A real treat as we got to have soufflé for both the main course and desert - lots of different choices and we all enjoyed the meal. The kids especially loved the soufflé deserts.

I use to work in Paris and frequented this restaurant almost weekly. Now 30+ years later I went back and it was exactly the same. A souffle for an appetizer, main course and dinner. The dessert has to be a chocolate OR a Grand Marnier. One of the few no souffle items is a must......their Escargot! Incredible!!

I've wanted to try this restaurant for years, and it didn't disappoint! I started with terrine which was a very generous serving, followed by crayfish soufflé and then finally the grand marnier soufflé ... I was in heaven! The room is very elegant and the service impeccable...a truly wonderful meal

Walked here in the rain after visiting the Louvre - was worth the walk. Was busy for lunch, but we were seated right away (3 people). Maybe the rain dissuaded some from eating out for lunch. We were seated in the back, and noticed many English-speakers in the room - wondered if we were segregated to make it easier on... More
