We had a family dinner here to celebrate a birthday. We all chose the three-course menu including a half bottle of wine per person at €50 per head. We were not in a hurry, which was fortunate as there were only two serving staff to cover both the indoor and external dining room. The quality of service we received, when... More

I can't do a proper review of this restaurant because I went there only to attend a wedding. When we checked it out before the event it was very quiet. The menu and wine list on the gate was short and quite expensive.the food at our event was very good and well presented however service was slow and I feel... More

A nice setting in a wonderful garden, but food and service is not up to the level of a really fine restaurant.

We live a few blocks away from this beautiful building. We came here to celebrate a birthday in the family. Well, they managed to turn the event into a complete horror. I'm not commenting on the food they serve, which is arguably in line with the quality you would expect from a venue of this caliber. However the service (or... More

Lovely place do lunch before or after a visit to the Château de Maisons-Laffitte. Splendid afternoon excursion from Paris & a prime example of French baroque architecture and a reference point in the history of French architecture. Restaurant menu and service were spectacular. Everything was very well presented and taste was refined. Wine recommendation was also spot on. Would return.

Among the limited array of restaurants, this one in my opinion has the best ratio of quality/price in town for those who want a gourmet experience at a moderate price.

A second empire house in a beautiful garden with water features, decorated appropriately and attractively. The most friendly and efficient staff and great food. We had a smoked salmon starter and fish for a main course and they were both perfect in quality and quantity. Beautifully presented too But the cafe gourmand was sublime just to die for! This is...

I was here on a business dinner. We were seated in a chambre separee, which was a little dead, as there was no music as there was in the main dining room. The restaurant is in a very nice residential area, and the building and grounds are really beautiful. Sitting outside in the summer time would probably have added another... More
