This is a well hidden gem. You very have to look for it on a dark rainy evening, But the quality of the food, the building and the view (if it stops raining) makes it all worthwhile for a great little dinner. The building is...More

This Restaurant, which belongs to the Hotel Le Corbusier, is very delicious for dinner. They offer a menu only but the one we had was VERY good. Well worth the trip out of town.

Therefore now hiding in the heart of the "Cité Radieuse," is this surprising
gastronomic address “Le Ventre de l’Architecte” or “the belly of the
architect". The atmosphere is special and quite unique: the magnificent
view on the Frioul islands, and with its terrace which looks like the
gangway of liner waiting for high seas (wooden bridge, 1930s iron chairs,
tables in the "compass", spirit by Jean Prouvé, great bay window).
The dining room with its double height, its mixture of blond wood and gray
marble, its Charlotte Perriand tables, its Scandinavian chairs give the
impression that time stopped 60 years ago and reinforce the “vintage
feeling”. The place is intimate, relaxing, secret and time less.
