“Excellent food, great menu, fantastic chef!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2012

An outstanding restaurant in Paris. I really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The chef is really friendly and recommends the must-haves on the menu. Definitely try the Pallella a l'encre de seiche. Unforgettable culinary experience! We got the cookbook as well, highly recommended.

“Flavorful Spanish Cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2012

El Fogon offers interesting, flavorful Spanish paellas in a pleasant atmosphere. We tried two of their selections and enjoyed each of them. The service was excellent. The wine recommended by our server was perfectly matched to the dinner and a great wine overall. If you are looking for a pleasant dinner out with a Spanish menu, el Fogon is a great choice.

“Impeccable gastronomic venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2012

Location: on the riverside, very nice after a walk around. Minimal design and stylish deco, very pleasant atmosphere. Many Japanese clients !
Service: smiling and attentive
Food: you can either chose the paellas to share or the gastronomic menu, which includes a succession of small dishes . It's wonderful. Last time I went there, I got a bit disappointed of their selection: a lot, to much, of fish in their dishes.

However, iIt really worth a try !

“If you cook from his book don't miss this experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2012

We booked for a Saturday lunch. The Tapas/Paella option is excellent value . The flavours of the langoustine paella superb and probably can't be replicated in Australia.

“Delicious tapas and paella”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2011

Delicious tapas and 9 different paella. Seafood & saffron paella is delicious (48€/2). Extensive tapas dinner 55€/pp. Reservations a must - every seat usually taken. Iberico Bellota Jambon entree is expensive (29€) but wonderfully delicious and large portion. Excellent sherries.
