My partner and I were getting married, a small affair we'd decided where food was of utmost importance.
After numerous requests for tables for just 10 at restaurants we had her hearts on in Paris, we decided to go elsewhere. Even the Mini Palais grand terrace could not accommodate us because they just don't do tables of more than 8. We were disheartened with only 2 weeks to go before the wedding date.
We decided to speak with Le Jardin des Plumes. Wow!
All I can say is from the greeting, to the table setting and the stunning fresh interior, to the exceptional staff and service, the smiling faces, the great wines and the far from snotty Parisian attitude to dining, we were absolutely beyond delighted with our choice.
I haven't even mentioned the food yet which was so incredibly out of this world. Five courses (you don't have to do five courses) with each one eliciting more ooohs and aahhhhs then the next. Our friends, all foodies who know their stuff, were still talking about it for days to come.
We left with full bellies and flushed faces from a brilliant, brilliant day. I cannot wait to go back to try it all again and this time we'll stay in the boutique hotel upstairs.
Exquisite, chic, stunning both inside and out but maintaining a relaxed, friendly manner for me makes this the best experience of my two years of wining and dining through France. My only regret is that we were so blown away by it all, we got caught up in the moment and forgot to leave a big enough tip. We'll rectify that next time because they deserve double.
