Lunch at this restaurant, and a "meet up" with friends visiting Paris was something of a highlight for my husband and I. We were charmed by the welcome, and sat down to something special. The waitress explained what we were about to enjoy, where it came from et al, and it was all very pleasant. Details were explained in both French and English. Thing is, we found the bill excessive in the extreme. When a generous tip was added, the meal did not appear as outstanding as previously. A lovely experience, but would never do again, nor recommend it to the 'average' traveller.

Very good food and with 7 courses along with aperitif and digestif, it is a amazing dining experience. The sommelier spoke english but going with some French friends who were able to explain the dishes and wine was really much better. The wines change with each course and the selections exactly match the food. The food itself was well suiting a michelin starred restaurant and although pricey, it was definitely value for money.
Service was good although a little slow, however it is expected in Paris and with good friends the time passes quickly.

This always reliable eatery serves delious well presented and perfectly prepared food, starting from their Jabugo ham served automatically with your apperitive, to the best ice cream filled macarrons in the World, this is an experience not to be missed. If you happen to be at this lovely place during white truffle season, do take it, you will never regret it.

Great service and great food. Good wine list but you must taste those Armagnacs. Helene Darroze has a collection of vintage armagnacs from her father's and brother's, artisan producers of one of the greatest armagnac I have ever tasted. Go for a Great Blend 40 or 50 years at least.....Oulala....it is not cheap, but it is divine! And after a superb dinner, what a treat!

In addition to fine dining (La Salle à Manger) upstairs where we lunched, there is a tapas option in Le Salon.

We chose a ‘main’ course, and the chef selected two starters and a desert; an extra cheese course came as always in France, before desert. A tradition that suits us! The food was brilliant, service was spot on and our experience was wonderful.

We visited on a recommendation and were not in any way disappointed.
