If you are obsessed with truffles, or have never had them and want to give it a try, this is the place to go. You can smell the wonderful fragrance of truffle the moment you step in the restaurant.

This “Grand Restaurant” seats only 30 guests, but the impeccable service and food are why it deserves its name. It’s great for a romantic dinner when staying close to the Place de la Madeleine and the rue St Honoré. Because the restaurant is so small, you will need to book a table several weeks in advance. The delicate, light dishes are worth every penny. This is culinary art.

It has simple dishes, andouillette with mashed potatoes, steak frites, trouts, charcuterie platters, boudins, but all really well done.
