Very nice restaurant, casual chic atmosphere. Food is excellent (specialized in fish), wine are perfect - the waiter was slightly distant but yet very professional

Went there for lunch and sat outside. Great restaurant, had an amazing starter and even better dessert. The mains of beef cheek was good but nearly at the same level of excellence of the other 2 courses. The waiters all speak English and are welcoming. I would go back.

We took their "carte blanche" menu whereby they service you a total of 6 courses of their choosing at 75 euros per person. Out of 6 courses, 3 were "very good", and 3 were "absolutely amazing"... This is especially true of their fish and seafood specialties. All and all, while this is certainly not cheap, price wise, Les Fables de... More

We had the "Carte Blanche" menu and it was delightful. The restaurant was simple but classy, the food presentation was fantastic and extremely delicious, the service was perfect and even had a little cake with a candle for a birthday request. All in all definitely good value for money. Keep it up, we will certainly dine here again on our... More

Me and my girlfriend was here in July 2016 and I'm really sorry to say that our experience was not good at all. The food was bland, uninspiring, behind in time and nothing special what so ever. On top of that there was also thumb prints on all of our plates. Both me and my girlfriend are used to eating... More

Very good food and not to expensive to be a Michelin Starred. The plates are very nice with an oriental touch. The oysters was very fresh and tasty. Nice for a fast lunch near Les Invalides. The atmosphere is informal but impeccable! We will come back!

Which says something, as we never had a bad meal anywhere on our travels this time. Chanced upon this modern,sociable, inviting restaurant while walking from the Eiffel Tower. Luckily we bagged the last available table. People after us happily queued for ages - a testament to the food here, I guess. The food was spectacular, both in presentation and flavour;... More

We were looking for a good family restaurant on Bastileday, well rated on TripAdvisor, next to what later turned out to be the biggest fireworks I have seen. 2 kids aged 10 and 12 were giving us a hard time about the menu (no spegetti and no steak and fries), but the elder soon turned over as the meal was...

We had a nice dinner with my collegue, the starter 'oeuf croustillant' was too innovative for us while the oyster was good as starter. As the main course my food "Cod fish Aioli " was really perfect. And desert was very delicious. We could not order banana soufle as we have been told it was finished. The service was quite... More

Fables of La Fontaine took the time to embellish. To welcome the new kitchen of Julia, the room wants to be more spacious and light, thanks to its increased capacity and windows to admire the fountain of Mars from its table. On the walls are stone walls contrast with the industrial lines of windows. The decoration is in tune with the times with a solid oak furniture, handmade, art of the table uncluttered and very light tones inspired naturalness. David Bottreau to head the restaurant for ten years told the kitchen Julia SEDEFJIAN, formerly second restaurant, went head today. Together they reflected on a new kitchen, which is the new life given to the restaurant: gourmet cuisine tinged with a bistronomic generosity. They dust off the gourmet kitchen, and make accessible star, with only watchword quality and creativity. The kitchen retains its identity by selecting marine classics of the marine world, but also delicious and unknown products to the general public. The noble products such as sole, lobster, caviar are available now in suggestion, according to arrivals. Seasonal products are showcased, guaranteeing freshness preserved, and starred cuisine is reflected in specific executions, controlled, in order to rediscover and exhaling in the flavors
