With its great location opposite the gardens of the Palais Royal, the gorgeous Macéo sets out to seduce you from the first. There’s a salon-bar in the front with the feel of a gentleman’s club, which leads to a spacious dining room that’s full of light. There’s also a raised private ‘library’ room for 8-10 people with a view of the Palais Royal, the whole done out in a style that’s both classic and contemporary. You won’t be disappointed by the cooking, either: chefs revisit the classics every season, inspired by whatever seasonal market produce is available – so you could eat anything from sautéed prawns, to foie gras and finely spiced pears, to delicate John Dory.
