Myself and my wife enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Le Cote Saint jacques in October 2012. The sun was shining on the banks of the river Seine as we sat down for a lunch in the simply but tastefully decorated restaurant room. The service throughout was attentive without being intrusive and each individual was knowledgeable and approachable. The food needs no introduction, Jean Michel Lorain and his kitchen team are world renowned and they produced a delightful mixture of techincal cooking as well as great local food cooked very simply. My main course of boudin noir was sublime, succulent, rich and most importantly left simple , which allowed the product to show off. Every course was a delight and targeted a different sensation on the palate, washed down of course with a wonderful Gevrey Chambertin , picked from the extensive wine list with emphasis on the Burgundy classics.
In conclusion we are talking about a 3 michelin star restaurant so there are certain standards expected but Jean Michel and his team create a wonderful dining experience without the formality of a Parisienne restaurant and at a very reasonable price for this level.
Thank you for a memorable day, we look forward to returning soon.
