Jean-Luc André is as inspired a decorator as he is a cook, and the quirky charm of his fresco clad dining room has made it popular with fashion designers and film stars. But behind the style there's some serious substance. André seeks out the best ingredients from local producers, and the quality shines through. Everything is à la carte and changes with the seasons: dishes might include marinated sardines with tomato relish, rosemary-scented rabbit with roasted vegetables, deep purple poached figs and a rather luxurious tournedos Rossini, consistently and perfectly pink.

AVOID /disastrous service is spoiling everything / a big pity !

Vegetables are great, ambiance is nice. But soon comes the disappointment.. if only i had seen the reviews before..!! i can read in many negative reviews exactly how we felt at our table at the end of our dinner... what a pity. Prices of the first course are those of a michelin star restaurant: 30 to 35eur for a first course !! SImple dessert, not worth its price either.
This place is obviously not living from inhabitants around there, but mostly of foreigner tourists driven by some article in some well chosen guides on paris must-try restaurants..

The cherry on the cake: Service is really a shame, That is why i'm noting 1/5, which is rude as the chief has some talent. But disastrous service is really spoiling everything...
please change

The food is good, but not magnificent. What's really magnificent is the interior! A lot of beautiful vintage accessories well lit by candle light. This restaurant is seriously a must see! Don't go by daylight, wait until the evening arrives. I will definitely go back, when in Paris.
