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.

After a week of exceptional multi course meals in Burgundy we were hoping for excellent food but not a 4 hour formal extravaganza. The Four of us opted not to have the tasting menu. We ordered a la carte which turned out to be perfect for us. This restaurant combined the right mix of casualness with the creativity and quality... More

My only regret with this restaurant was that we were flying home to Australia the next day and so could not fully appreciate it. I had the La Bourride, one of the chefs signature dishes. It was magnificent. My husband had the sea bass which was also very good. The staff were efficient and delightful. Their English was better than... More

This is about our 7th visit to Les Fables. Last year, on our yearly trip to Paris, we were unable to dine there, as their renovations were in full swing. This year we were very excited about our reservation for 8.00 p.m. as we were treating one of our good Parisienne friends. The new decor is wonderful, and the additional... More

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

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
