Great food, great service. Wine menu a bit overpriced. The pork shoulder was to die for. Make reservations.

“Pefect for Special Occasion Meal”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We went here on Saturday 19th to celebrate by girlfriends birthday.

I picked PLA after reading the reviews and we were not dissapointed.

I can imagine it could be hard to find as it is down a little side street however as we were staying in the Gothic Quarter we found it quite easily - best to head to place de Juame by the Gothic Cathedral and it is only 1 min walk away.

I booked a table via phone (no email booking) and when we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly memeber of staff and taken to a lovely table on the balcony area.

Our waitress explained all the menu in english and the specials and recommended a good wine.

The food was all of a fantasic standard my only "complaint" would be that the portions where quite small - deffo quality over quantity.

At approx 100 Euro for a 3 course meal with wine for the two of us it was quite expensive but for a special occasion it was well worth it.

Thank you PLA for a great night.

“Amazing service with great food”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

We love the apetisers (we repeat some of them), main dishes with a lot of flavors, and creative cuisine. I really enjoyed every taste, combination of foods, and the deserts are for die for. We share 6 of them (only 3 of us). Nice wine list. Very good surprise !!! Like other reviewer said : Well worth the money !!!

“Not exceptional but good food”
Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

We ate two apetisers: one was excellent (tge daily special) while the saahimi was somehow normally good. Main course the same: excellent lamb and mediocre pork. For excellence, the cook must be more continuous in top quality.
