When we arrived with my pregnant wife, they prepared the seat for her with special pillows without us noticing the transfer of any information. The food consists of multiple multiplate servings of similar ingredients cooked in various ways. It's a very comfortable and thoughtful way...More

We dined here on our last night on a short gastronomic visit to Paris. We chose the tasting menu, which we felt offered the best value for money. The dinner was of the highest standard from start to finish, from the imaginative amuse-bouches through to...More

He food is simply outstanding. It provides some of the most creative taste and texture combinations I have ever had. Outrageously expensive, but worth every penny and more. Not a restaurant for those who are not serious about food and innovations in food combinations.
