So happy I booked a table at Les Fables for New Year's Day dinner - it was the perfect place to start the year. I had been to Paris for New Year's five years prior and had no dinner reservations which led to the worst meal experience of my life. But this - redemption! We had a very reasonably priced... More

I decided to choose this restaurant after reading many good reviews in TripAdvisor. I arrived at the place 3 minutes to 7 pm, the door still closed. There were several people outside the restaurant too. The size of the restaurant was quite small. We were allocated to a table near the door. I ordered the crispy egg yolk which is... More

Very nice restaurant with an outstanding quality of food. All the plates combine different flavors in an original and a very tasteful way. Very crowded with small tables, but the place itself is also very small.

Although the seating was not as expected (high stool table) it was comfortable and the space full but attractive. Then followed a wonderfully delicious dinner, carefully prepared, not over the top with foams, moss or the like and presented by attentive and pleasant staff. Recommended for both quality and price.

We knew it's good and made online reservations for lunch. It is rather small place with many tiny tables.It got crowded at some point of our lunch but overall a good experience. Seafood dishes a bit on the pricey site but very tasty and well presented. I would recommended it.

We found this place by accident, strolling around the area after a trip on the Seine. It sums up how replete Paris is with really excellent restaurants all over the place. We were lucky to get a table, and the service and food were excellent. Deftly worth dropping, or booking ahead.

I chose to have dinner at Les Fables de la Fontaine because I knew I'd only leave the exhibition at the Grand Palais around 22:00 and Les Fables de la Fontaine would still be open by then. I'd a big lunch at Pierre Gagnaire in the afternoon so I wanted something light and didn't take the tasting menu. Actually I... More

This is a well located restaurant with a very interesting menu. Specialties of the chef are really very good. Only problem on a Saturday, the service was very slow.

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
