We are staying close by and kept walking past this pretty little restaurant, so when we had a free evening we went. It was a delight. A small menu but the steak was delicious. Interesting presentation and very friendly staff. If we visit Fontainebleau again we will definitely be back.

We've been a couple of times in Fontainebleau and know a few restaurants here. We loved the food in L'Air du Temps. French cuisine with a modern touch on the lighter side. Lots of very fresh ingredients, good wine and the friendly staff made it a perfect evening. Very cozy restaurant with warm lights. It's now one of our favourite restaurants. ;-)

You should make a reservation as it often is booked.

Went there for an off work dinner. One of the best burrata I ever had with fresh tomato and a light pesto. The main dish with roasted onions filled with squash and other vegetables and cream was awesome. Too bad didn’t have any space for dessert. Must go here.

L'Air du Temps is a no-frills place in terms of decor. We sat out on simple tables on the little terrace by the street. They seem to reserve their efforts for the food and service both of which were really good. We ordered one three course menu and another main course on the side, and every single thing we ate was delicious. The dessert was a lovely, tangy strawberry and panacotta combination that included a strawberry granita and some mini strawberry macarons. The food was all very easy on the eye, but smelled and tasted so good that we took only one hurried photo before doing the meal justice. The staff was attentive and recommended wines to go with the meal. The menu is entirely in French but the staff is very helpful. As far as fine dining goes, L'Air du Temps is definitely value for money, but at roughly 50 euro per head if you want dessert and wine along with your main course, it's not a budget eat either. If you do want to splurge on a good meal in Fontainebleau, specially if you're camping or bouldering in the area, this is the place to go to.

If we're in Fontainebleau again, we'll definitely make a trip back.
