He proposes there recipes that, beyond being the symbiosis of his culinary vision and the identity of our restaurant, are the result of the experience accumulated in numerous starred establishments, nearby great Chefs. It’s in the Casino de Deauville that were heard his first pan noises, where he began as a kitchen help, before entering the prestigious triple starred Schwarzwalstube restaurant as a Chef de partie. After a military service done at the Cadre Noir de Saumur, he successively worked in renown establishements, like Le Clos Longchamp ** (Jean-Marie Meulien), Le Restaurant Vieille Fontaine** (François Clerc), Le Taillevent*** (Phillipe Legendre), Le Jamin*** (Joel Robuchon) or Le Grand Vefour*** (Guy Martin).

Looking for a special experience to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, during our Paris visit, we consulted the concierge at our hotel. Whilst giving us a number of options, Fred said La Truffiere was his favourite. We are so glad we accepted his recommendation. We also decided to have the "surprise" 6 course degustation with matching wines, and everything we tasted was a culinary delight. We were located downstairs in the cellar dining room, which had a special atmosphere to it. The service was outstanding, with Eric the sommelier in particular having a delightful manner. This was a memorable dining experience for a very special day.

I had the lunch prix fixe - wow. Limited choice but every plate was superb - such an interesting and eclectic blend of French and Japanese influences (which never felt contrived - it just worked). There was no element of the meal which was not of the highest standard - even the bread was just incredible. I can only speak of the lunch service which i thought was decent value. The sommelier (unsurprisingly given the restaurant's reputation) picked out some outstanding wines without going for the high end of the wine list.

The restaurant is deceptive from the outside - looking little different from many of the tourist traps around Rue Mouffetard but its a gorgeous, calm interior - I liked the fact that tables were nicely spaced out rather than trying to cram too many people in...

Overall, myself and my wife had a great time and will definitely be back

Its Michelin star food and each plate has all these different flavors and textures. The service was par excellence and I felt very well treated with several "serveurs" helping at all times. Even the maitre d' asked us how our experience was. I have to say it is one of the best meals I had in Paris and would definitely come again. I came during lunch and had the prix fixe with my daughter who also loved the place. Next time I would have chosen something different than the cheese plate as my daughter's dessert was excellent.!

visited la truffiere and left feeling amazed by the quality of the evening i've had. everything from the food to the cosy ambiance to the slick service was spot on. the waiter who served us was the smoothest man i'd ever met, pouring wine into our glasses from a metre above the glass with not a single drop missing the glass.

we went for the initiation menu and every course we tried was delicious. the meal was quite expensive but worth every penny

We ate here in a group of 3 couples, celebrating one anniversary and one 50th birthday.

We all opted for the "normal" tasting menu (i.e. not the one with truffles with every dish) and had probably the best meal of our lives. It is expensive so you have to accept that it will empty your pockets however the staff were excellent, the food amazing (never had a pre-dessert dessert before!) and the sommelier steered me away from a wine saying that it was probably past it to another which was similarly priced and excellent.

Overall a wonderful (if eye-wateringly expensive) experience.
