This restaurant was perfection from beginning to end. They accommodated my vegetarianism (unusual in France) with interesting options. And from the amuse to the final course it was a fantastic meal. Everything was thoughtful, perfect. Great warm friendly service. And for such a lavish meal, the price was very, very reasonable. Great wine list. The dessert course was the weakest... More

I ate with two friends and will remember the experience without a doubt. We had the taster marine which represents excellent value at roughly £8 per course for 12 courses at the current exchange rate Yes..12 courses accompanied by good service although the staff do struggle with English. We choose two excellent wines which were served appropriately chilled Surrounding are... More

For our first night in France, we wanted to have a really special meal and this restaurant did not disappoint. We were very tired having arrived at 6:30 AM in Paris from the US, so a tasting menu made choosing our dinner easy. Unlike my husband, I do not eat meat, but the chef already had alternatives for pescatarians. The... More

Some very successful plates, but enough gaffes and poor execution to prevent a recommendation or a return visit. Modern, and a bit overly bright decor. Three menus from 47€ to 95€ (plus an all lobster option at 99€); we took the middle road at 69€ for five courses. Portions are modest. Amuses were rather bland little nibbles, beautiful but with...

What a treat! I went to Origine with my daughter yesterday @ lunch time. We had the choice between 5 menus (from 95 euros to 37) we took the "découverte" (discovery) @ 47 euros. It was delicious, from the "mise en bouche" to the dessert! We also took the pairing wine which were really interesting and matched the food perfectly.... More

Attractive exterior facade & interior decor. Staff highly professional & pleasant.(including the owner) Each beautifully presented dish, comprising of the highest quality products, left a long-lasting mixture of tastes in the mouth. Equally impressive range of quality wines to match. Public utilities impeccably clean. This is not a restaurant for clients who adore copious quantities of food on their plate,but... More

In Rouen for a special weekend, we first called to be told the Restaurant was fully booked - we called on Thursday 18 January for the Friday which was a bit ambitious. We were however called back on Friday morning: there had been a cancellation and they had already booked our table. Great start. As soon as we arrived, it... More

If service in Paris is like a nose stricken with the flu--stuffed-up and snotty--then Origine comes across like a long breath of fresh air. The young and energetic staff were courteous, humorous, helpful and attentive. The sommelier's recommendation of a white Corbières (over pricier white Burgundies) was not only excellent value, but perhaps the best wine of our two week... More

The food was perfect, but our party of 5 was one of the first to arrive and one of the last to be able to leave. A bit to long time between the 10 couses and a very slow service to give us the bill (it should be easy to divide it in 5 equal parts) and even we had... More
