Had dinner here with a work colleague after doing a quick TripAdvisor search for a restaurant in La Defense. Le Tournesol had good reviews and I wasn't disappointed. This restaurant changed my poor opinion of restaurants and service in Paris. We had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The service is very good. The wait staff were friendly, attentive and helpful.

Visited this restaurant based on the brilliant recommendation from Laurent at the Hilton Hotel La Defense. The staff here is extremely helpful and all their suggestions were spot on. The poached egg in chorizo starter, black pork with fig compote and pistachio soufflé (pretty sure if it wasn't in the dish it would float away) was all excellent as we're... More

This restaurant was recommended by the Hilton...and it was amazing. From the wine list to the Fole Fras!

On arrival the menu is not big which a good sign. Sablés parmesan as "amuse bouche" were great and the 39€ menu was excellent. Appreciable service and never far away. The wine wow the wine... perfect even for the cheapest white Loire one. Looking for a "bonne table" near La Défence then you should consider this pretty restaurant.

From the outside easily to overlook. Inside nice atmosphere, enthusiastic staff. They offer a menu (starter, entree, Dessert) for just 45 EUR of very high quality. We loved the food and had a great evening there.

The food is good. Waiters friendly but not over friendly. You have a good cart and fast service. Expensive beer. Nice to sit outside. Next to the street but that is not disturbing.

Everything is dressed in white including the Chef himself. You know a good restaurant when the Chef come's to your table and asks what you think. You get what you pay for. From the outside it looks like anywhere else, but go inside and after your first mouthful, your immersed in French cuisine with all the tastes intertwined. The wine... More

La Défense seems to lack restaurants and a bunch of the ones I found opened much later. Luckily we found Le Tournesol, which opened at 7 for dinner. We didn't have a reservation but they managed to seat us. The look of the restaurant was more modern, very nice and bright. Service was impeccable, they kept checking on us without... More

The food was delicious, nice decor, friendly staff. They even have a children's menu. Will definitely go back to this restaurant, specially in this city where there is not a lot of good of restaurants, this one is from far the best one!
