On recommendation, we treated ourselves to a Michelin star meal in Paris. A luncheon menu allowed us to sample a three course meal at Les Ambassadeurs at 68 Euros/head, no more than the cost of a very average meal in home-town Sydney.
While the luncheon menu is limited to two choices per course, both my wife and I were able to select dishes that we liked and, per chance, between us we crossed off everything on the menu.
The food was superb. Wonderfully cooked and imaginatively presented. The courses were well spaced without leaving us twiddling our thumbs, yet 2 hours passed too quickly.
The service was a case study in attentiveness and efficiency, without being overbearing or pretentious. Note to Australian hospitality staff - please take a quick trip to Paris and see how it is meant to be done!
And the oppulence of the dining room, set in Hotel Crillon overlooking Place de la Corncorde, is breathtaking. Louise XIV would feel right at home.
One caution. While the set menu is excellent value, your drinks can rapidly blow out the cost of the meal. Les Ambassadeurs sports a wonderful wine list but finding a wine under 100 Euro/bottle is a challenge - how many wine lists boast wines at 5000 Euro?
All up not only a great meal but a wonderful experience.
