There are few restaurants in the world that are as impressive, opulent, and formal as this one. The decor is reminiscent of a grand room at Versailles. Service is impeccable, and the food is arranged like art on a plate. This is truly a place...More

Possibly the most elegant of all dining rooms in any city - with a service standard that issecond to none. Our last evening was the end of an era and the hotel de Crillon is now closed for rennovations until end 2015! In the meantime,...More

This is a really special place due to the atmosphere, service and high quality of food. It is not cheap, but it is worth the price or your euro. A wonderful place to take guests from out of town for that "Parisienne" experience at an...More

The dining room is opulent, the food was very good (not outstanding) and the service was what you would expect in a restaurant of this standard. However, I thought it was hugely over priced. To charge 24 euros for 2 double espresso's is ridiculous!!! The...More

Description
The Counts of Crillon's former ballroom now hosts a gastronomic restaurant, acknowledged to be one of the best dining venues in the city. The place is grand and majestic, impressive in its scope as well as in the splendour of its Louis XV decoration, performed at the time by architect Ange-Jacques Gabriel: marble marquetry made of six different varieties, sumptuous crystal chandeliers, frescoes on the ceiling. In 2011, the restaurant has received its first Michelin star, awarded to its young and talented Chef Christopher Hache and his team.
