About the restaurant
Adorned with sumptuous tapestries and 19th-century art objects, La Galerie is the heart and soul of the hotel. Set to the rhythm of a piano, it is the ideal place to share breakfast, indulge in a tea time and delicious pastry, enjoy an apéritif, or discover emblematic dishes of French gastronomy playfully reimagined with modern and creative touches.

For this ode to French culinary heritage, chef Alan Taudon has partnered with small producers nestled a few kilometers from Paris, meticulously selected for their responsible approach. Confit leek from Ile-de-France, Macaroni with black truffle shards, or Blue lobster are followed by with the most emblematic desserts of French pastry. Signed by chef Michael Bartocetti, the Vanilla Millefeuille, Paris-Brest, or Chocolate Soufflé are also highlighted. A menu to die for, for the delight of hotel residents and Parisian gourmet alike.

About the restaurant
Le Cinq unveils itself behind two majestic wrought-iron doors. In this room with a classic Franco-English style, where excellence serves emotion, chef Christian Le Squer shapes a cuisine of products, modern, elegant, and constantly evolving. A distinguished culinary composition of the highest accolade, as Le Cinq has been awarded 3 Michelin stars since 2016.

Centered around seasonal ingredients sourced from small producers, the menu reflects the chef's Breton roots and Parisian inspirations. Among his signature dishes, Breton langoustines, gratinated onion soup, or line-caught sea bass with buttermilk from my childhood are must-tries. An explosion of tastes and flavors.

By his side, his accomplice Eric Beaumard, the iconic Restaurant Director and vice-world's best Sommelier, orchestrates high-flying service and supervises the cellar with 50,000 bottles that has made Le Cinq's worldwide reputation.

About the restaurant
L'Orangerie is a veritable glass jewel, offering an unobstructed view of the famous Marble Courtyard. As night falls, the atmosphere flooding this glasshouse becomes intimate and magical: the perfect moment to enter the refined universe of this restaurant awarded with two Michelin stars.

Bold and creative, chef Alan Taudon has made the radical choice of a unique and responsible culinary signature, exclusively focused on plant-based and seafood. Showcasing inventiveness and modernity, reinterpreting the codes of French haute cuisine, this lover of sauces imagines delicate and subtle compositions carried by techniques that impress with their innovative character. A true ode to true and sincere taste, where each plate is a feat of lightness and concentration of aromas. A vegetable-based gastronomic experience conducive to a sensory escape, enhanced by delicate sweet bites signed by pastry chef Michael Bartocetti.

About the restaurant
Just a stone's throw from the Arc de Triomphe, da Alfredo is a traditional, family-run Italian restaurant that's a perfect blend of Milanese trattoria at lunchtime and 70s Palermo in the evening. With its period marble bar, Italian chandeliers, subdued lighting, mirrors and mahogany, and tablecloths, da Alfredo is a single ticket to the Italy you love. Our chef, who has been with us for over 15 years, leads a passionate team and lovingly prepares dishes every day using fresh produce. The pasta is made on-site every day. You'll find all the classic Italian recipes: Vitello Tonnato, Artichokes à La Romaine, Antipasti, Carbonara, Cacio e Pepe, Ossobucco, and Milanese, as well as more original dishes like Tagliatelle Vitello, Spaghetti with Squid Ink & Calamari, Vongole, Risotto di Parma... Don't leave without trying our delicious Tiramisu, or the gluten-free chocolate fondant.

About the restaurant
The George, a Michelin-starred establishment, offers a friendly and sharing gastronomic experience orchestrated by the indispensable chef Simone Zanoni. A journey between the French Riviera and Italy, in a chic and trendy setting. In his refined creations inspired by traditional Mediterranean cuisine, Simone blends his inherent sense of product with his transalpine culture and his taste for bold flavors. Alongside him, Italy's best sommelier Francesco Cosci oversees a menu rich with over 1000 references of Italian bottles, the largest collection in France.

At Le George, the Michelin-starred cuisine is accompanied by a strong commitment: offer a unique eco-responsible and virtuous experience to guests. Vegetables from the restaurant's garden that adorn the plates, mushrooms harvested from coffee grounds and cooked... initiatives aimed at sensitizing guests to the heartfelt cause championed by the chef and his team.

About the restaurant
Located just a stone's throw from the Hôtel de Ville and the Marais district, Le Coupe Gorge restaurant, with its antique parquet flooring, dressed stonework and red velvet banquettes, exudes the flavour of old Paris and the pleasures of fine dining. The restaurant was founded in 1895 on rue de la Coutellerie, a street that owes its name to the many active cutlers. Its current name is more recent, no doubt due to the offbeat humour of one of its previous owners! Far from being a trap, Le Coupe Gorge offers a warm atmosphere, typical of old Parisian establishments, and a friendly welcome.

Excellent restaurant. Everything we had was great. Be advised though, they did not have our reservation as they said they don’t get the open table ones. So book through another service or directly.
