Currently the hot ticket in town. The restaurant has a spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower & a stunning terrace in summer.

The interiors are gorgeous and a mix of 1930’s right up to modern day marble. High ceilings, a marble bar, soft cream interiors and low lighting create an intimate feel.

In addition, the waiters could be film stars. Dressed in tuxedos and modern dresses, they are fluent in English, all attractive & highly attentive.

The menu is packed with seafood including modern many raw offerings. There is also a traditional French steak & roast chicken – it’s a global mix.

Anova all, this is the place for a romantic date or special occasion dinner. Book in advance & ask for a table with a view.

This modern restaurant oozes glamour and opened at the end of 2018. The interiors are striking, making it a place to see and be seen.

The theatrical style of 1920s lavish interiors fit the building, the Edoardo VII theatre in Paris.

Think chandeliers, a red room, a blue room, mirrored ceilings, gold, heavy curtains and thick-set luxe seating.

The menu is packed with French classics. The food is elegantly presented, and there’s a punchy cocktail list. There’s a cocktail bar in the basement, a great place to kick off the night.

Kinugawa Matignon Restaurant

This unassuming Paris restaurant is fast earning a reputation as the best Japanese food in Paris.

The food here is authentic, traditional Japanese. The interiors are an eclectic mix of modern and traditional – think wooden tables and ceilings, plush grey seating & relaxed patterned black screens. High ceilings in one section.

There is a bar you can sit at to watch the “artwork” of the sushimi creations, which is my favourite spot to sit. The yellow tail carpaccio is to die for, as are lamb with red miso and scallops.

Virtually Impossible to get in without a booking.
