Address: Avenue des Champs Elysées, 75008 Paris
Cuisine Type: French
Metro: Arc de Triomphe
It may be a chain, but this place offers a typically French quality of food and is very near L’Arc de Triomphe, which means queues of tourists must be negotiated in order to sample the mouth-watering cuisine.
The menu is reviewed at least four times a year with the seasons and the atmosphere is at once cosy and unquestionably original. Perfectly prepared oysters come on what can only be described as a tower, potent spirits are on offer and, as if that weren’t enough, the dessert menu when I was last there was quite simply to die for.
If you don’t mind waiting for a table and aren’t offended by tourists then you should be delighted by everything else.
