I have eaten at Les Chefs de France down below and enjoyed my meal there, but Monsieur Paul takes the dining experience to another level by creating a wonderful, civilized oasis inside the hustle and bustle of the park. The dining room is open and bright (we were there for an early dinner, so it was still sunny), and very peaceful (unless someone decides to bring in an unhappy child). The service here is amazing and very attentive without being too stuffy.
The food is, of course, wonderful. From the cheese pastry amuse bouche, we loved everything we had. We started with the escargot ravioli with parsley cream. It was earthy, complex, and delicious. I had the red snapper with potato scales, fennel, and rosemary sauce. The rosemary could have easily over-powered the fish, but it was creamy and delicate, providing a nice complement to the fish and fennel. My dining companion had the duck a l'orange. The duck itself was tender and flavorful, with the sauce providing just the right amount of citrus without being too sticky and sweet.
Our only disappointment was the dessert menu. We were hoping for something classic - creme brulee, crepes, pots de creme - but after looking at the dessert menu, nothing really jumped out at us as a "must try". I'm sure what was offered was delicious, but it just wasn't what we were hoping to see.
This is obviously not an inexpensive place to dine, but I do think it's worth the price for an absolutely wonderful dining experience.
