It was the best experience we've had. We booked a table with 3 other couples and we occupied the central table inside the kitchen. The staff seemed genuinely passionate and having fun interacting with us while being extremely professional. The 3 michelin star chef unfortunately died a few months later, what a pity. The cuisine itself is "simple" in its... More

The food is something very special The wines are very special The service is the best I was taken here by my Nephew who lives nearby. I was totally impressed and having eaten in many good restaurants in major cities around the world from Hong Kong to London to New York this was the best.

With such high prices for one complete meal at this restaurant, you come in with a lot of expectations. Restaurant de l'Hotel de Ville have successfully exceeded all my expectations. Food was truly truly incredible, every part of the dish was thought through and it was amazing. The service reflected the well deserved 3*, it is impossible to describe my... More

La Liste seem to have got it right. This is the best restaurant we have been to. It is so rare to get a meal and pay that much for it but end up leaving and thanking the staff for the opportunity to have done so. It is hard to find the words to express exactly how good this was... More

As always i left the wine choices ( by the glass to accompany each dish ) to the Sommelier and they were Excellent. We wish Brigitte and her Equipe every future Success and Happiness... More

Arriving at 6.57 pm - table booked for 7 pm were surprised that no one was there! When the Maître D appeared he said they were not ready...... We were shown to our table, immediately followed by several other parties. Though the first to arrive we were the 4th table to receive rolls and butter. Throughout we got the impression... More

If one were to imagine the finest food, with every course perfectly prepared, presented with artistry and served by superlatively trained and enthusiastic staff, then one would have a vision either of heaven or this restaurant. Heaven is, one hopes, not quite yet, but we did go to the Hotel de Ville. We were a large party, welcomed at the... More

Going to this restaurant is not just going to dinner. It is a pleasure to be able to receive a reservation and spend an evening being with lovely hosts, exceptional food and without a doubt the best restaurant I have ever dined at. You are not an 7 or 9pm seating at this restaurant, you are guests of the team... More

Truly amazing for the eyes, taste and it was in fact very light we did not feel uncomfortable after this beautiful lunch. Service and... More
