You read it here first, the prices at l'Ami Louis are eyewatering. We paid 1100 for 4 people last time. But once you have accepted the decadance, Chez l'Ami Louis is some of the finest french food you will ever eat. Portions are made to...More

It is just no longer of this time. Unfriendly and uninterested waiters (don't expect them to pour your wine or water even for a 500 euro bottle). Cold duck confit, little taste no condiments whatsoever. The escargots, big and mighty, ok. Cote a l'os a...More

it's really good French! The price level is around e40up/plate. The wine is from e70up/bottle. But The food is big volume!everybody choose the escargot! 凄く雰囲気のいいレストランで開店19:30に行きましたがすぐに満席状態になりました。 価格帯はスターターも含め40ユーロからで高めですが量が非常に多いです。 私達はエスカルゴをシェアしポーククリーム連れは鳩?の姿焼きを一つづつ頼み三人でシェアしましたが残してしまいました。エスカルゴは皆さん頼んでました。 他には96ユーロのでかいステーキを頼み皆でシェアしてる人が多かったです。 ワインは安いものでボトル70ユーロからメチャクチャ高いものまで揃ってます。ハーフボトル40ユーロからもあるのでたくさん飲まない人はこちらがいいですね。 私達は上記にワインボトル90ハーフボトル40を頼み280ユーロほどでした。 美味しかったですがお腹いっぱいでした。

I wish I could think of something good to say. Service was indifferent to rude. Prices were extortionate and those on the menu higher than those posted on the internet site of the restaurant. The place was packed with foreigners, which might have been a...More

Our dinner last night at L' Ami was a Parisian nightmare. Where does one begin? Let's start with price (and, to be clear, we travel the world spending too much money on food.) Yes, the asparagus, which we got to see because the table next...More

This restaurant used to be charming and irresistible, albeit expensive, with the waiters theatrically throwing your coats up on to the over head shelves. Food extremely good, but portions enormous. Today was disappointing. It wasn't busy but the army of waiters resolutely ignored a vacated...More

The largest portions of food anyone can encounter in France, be it their excellent roast chicken , fine steaks or heaps of frites. Usually full of Americans, it's tiny and crowded but with a fun spirit. Primitive restroom downstairs to be avoided. I've enjoyed meals...More
