We thoroughly enjoyed our evening in this restaurant. Felt very welcome and enjoyed the nice service. A bit casual but atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. The dinner was outstanding. Crispy egg starter and fish dishes were delicious An original cuisine that is thoughtful in its flavours and creative. Congratulations to the chef.

We went here with zero expectations as someone had booked the restaurant for us, so I had no idea what to expect. The atmosphere is really chilled and allows you to get in the mood for a lovely meal. The a la carte menu is not massive and I still had difficulties trying to narrow down what I was going... More

The fish we had was great and so was the wine. Service was just OK but nothing to complain... The setting is nothing special and unfortunately for us it was too hot, even inside the restaurant. I guess I just had higher expectations of this place but I would recommend it as an option for seafood in that area of... More

One of the most excellent lunches I had in years. The presentation! The service! The quality of the food! If you like pure and simple dishes with a great combination of fresh produce this is the place in Paris. Even the espresso is a piece of art.

Went there for a lunch. Sitting outside we found ourselves too close to a couple, unwillingliy privy to their very unpleasant talk. This setting might have impacted our impression of the restaurant. Food (Lunch menu) was creative for sure, but not incredibly tasty.

Enjoyed lunch with 2 friends. They made a few mistakes in service, but offered a free glass of champagne that more than made up for it. Oh, and the food was excellent.

Description
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
