Two parisian places, offering a boutique and a restaurant, and a corner in Courchevel, to discover the subleties of the Truffle, in all its form. Designed by the spanish decorator Thomas Urquijo in a modern Art Déco style, elegant and graphic, this second restaurant is located near the Champagne Elysées and welcomes you in the warm atmosphere of a luxury Brasserie.

“Unbelievably wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

Tuesday night, managed to get a table without a reservation - but I think we were lucky so best to book ahead! Within an hour the restaurant was full! Brilliant service, warm, hospitable, friendly, knowledgable, helpful! We chose the special - champagne, caviar and blinis to start- perfect! Main courses of turbot and gilt head bream, both with fab black truffles! This dining experience was simply the best we had in Paris - a lifelong memory!

“Great for a treat, although pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

We went to Maison de la Truffe over the Easter long weekend. Booking process online was smooth and hassle free. On arrival the smell of truffles assaults your senses which is great (assuming you love truffles). The service was overall very good although the person who greeted us was a bit cold (maybe due to our attire - walking around Paris all day is better in comfy clothes rather than fancier ones).

Regardless the food was delicious - only ordered 2 courses as advised by a friend who said that the truffle dishes are quite rich and she proved to be absolutely right. For main the scampi and truffle risotto was very nice although the scampi itself was the best thing about the dish. Dessert was truffled belle-Helene pear which was swamped by the melted chocolate. To top it off it was also served with truffle ice cream AND cream. Way too much. However, as i only ate half the chocolate sauce and truffle ice cream, it was quite nice.

“Very good food, very friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

Great atmosphere, great food, friendly staff who speak English. Very nice dining experience. Simple yet sophisticated. I had the shrimp salad with parmigiana, sprinkled with truffle oil.... It was excellent! I love the chocolate covered truffles served with coffee at the end of our dinner. Definitely one of my favorites!

“Outstanding food. Service could be better.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

The food is great. We both had the cauliflower soup with shaved truffle and the risotto(with truffle) it was complimented by a great Rosé and a nice table by the window. I'd love to experience more of the menu.

The service was slow, unfriendly and innattentive - very different to every other place we went to in Paris on this trip.

We will return.
