We visited Aspic after hearing rave reviews. It did not disappoint! Everything from the decor (the plates are beautifully unique), the service and the meal were exquisite. It’s a must.

Vast variety of flavor combinations and fantastic staff let us have a wonderful night in Paris. I can recommend the wine pairing, that delicately “accompagné” les course.

Last night’s dinner at Aspic was amazing. Really first rate combinations of subtle flavours and textures. Very inventive and tasty. They definitely deserve the Michelin star they have earned since I was here last. The chef, Quentin Giroud, has just got better and better!

We visited Paris to try a Michelin star restaurant and decided on ASPIC — it was a great choice! The 7 course meal were all delightful; each plate unique, full of flavor and beautifully arranged. My husband & I agreed that we had one of...the best prepared meat cut during our dining experience 🔥 Service was great and atmosphere was fitting. Thank you for hosting us, ASPIC.More

My husband and I came to Paris to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and we started our long weekend with a bang at the fabulous Apsic, a small 1 star Michelin restaurant in the 9th district in Paris. With only 20 covers, chef Quentin Giroud...and his small team produce an amazing 7 courses using local, fresh, seasonal ingredients. There is no menu, this wonderful selection of food is explained to you by their impeccable and friendly waiting staff, as it is served. We chose the wine pairing to accompany the food. Given you do not know in advance what you will be eating, I really recommend this option. We drank a selection of white and red wines from small, French winemakers which worked deliciously well with the food. It is difficult to pick a favourite from our incredible menu but I have to say the roasted cuttlefish with romesco sauce and the Auvergne blue cheese with white chocolate ganache, blew my mind. Aspic is an intimate restaurant, yet friendly with a relaxed atmosphere. The food and service are superb with very sensible prices. I absolutely recommend it whether you are celebrating or just want a fabulous evening out.More

This was our second visit to Aspic - and we plan on returning again. Food is so creative and delicious and I especially love that Chef Giroud serves some of the courses and spends time with the guests. We plan to return in Sept if...Covid allows.More

We were very sceptic when we saw the location and the (very) small restaurant. The pictures on TripAdvisor were also a bit worrisome (very colorful). But we were very wrong! From the first dish all of our worries quickly disappeared. I was afraid the the...next dishes could not live up to the first. But I was wrong! Every dish was good - if not great! We had an amazing evening! Friendly staff, great food and delicious wine. It is the best experience of our weekend in Paris. I was very happy to see a guy come in with his bicycle helmet: this place is for everyone. It is the cheapest and smallest one Michelin star restaurant. But if you don’t go there then you are missing out. We loved everything about it!More

My wife and I ate at Aspic in February of 2019 during our 10-year anniversary trip to France, and this meal was one of the best I've ever had. We had a very reasonably priced 9-course prix fixe and every single item was memorable and...delicious. The staff was very attentive and the chef himself introduced many of the courses. I could go through all 9 courses but the one I'll never forget, course number 1, was a homemade brioche that included lime that the chef had grown on his own balcony.More

we visited restaurant for our second anniversary dinner and were very happy with it. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the chefs took the time to explain the food. While it is a smaller restaurant, it is exactly what you would expect from...a 1 Michelin star restaurant. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.More

We ate at ASPIC on a quiet midweek evening. The restaurant had warned us beforehand that in order to properly respect social distancing, they would be serving promptly and latecomers would miss courses. I was concerned it would make for a stressful meal, but the...excellent service team ensured that it was a pleasant and relaxing meal. There is only one option, the 7 course tasting menu, the website suggests they aren't flexible on food preferences, but they do cater to allergens. The courses were served at a good cadence, we had time to savour and enjoy, but never waited too long. The dishes were detailed, delicate, creative and importantly, very tasty. I couldn't pick a favourite, but had three standouts : the melon reduction entrée with mascapone and mushroom ice cream, the gorgeous fresh sardine fillets and the roasted pollack with wasabi and pea mash. This is the kind of fine dining I love, all for a good price.More

Hello, Thank you for your request. We cook all our meats and fishes and jus and most of our vegetables using peanut oil so if the allergy concerns that oil as well, we are afraid we cannot. Best regards, ASPIC
