Our prix fixe lunch was just perfect. The waiter was courteous and prompt (and spoke excellent English). The dishes were unusual, creative, and delicious. The prices were reasonable. Truly a gourmet dining experience.

We ate here on our way down to the South of France on holiday so were in high spirts. This is a new restaurant and they are trying very hard indeed.

Our mains were tagliolini stuffed with cheese in an excellent sauce with chanterelles and hazelnuts, and a beautifully done filet of sea bass accompanied by an impressiove foam, summer peas and baby lima beans. The compound butter with herbs is house made and wonderful. Dessert was a tomato sorbet with strawberries, olives, pistachios, almond crumble and Tuilerie buscuits.

It is obvious that chef is trying to get a Michelin star. Some of the food was presented to a very high standard indeed although this was only the second best meal that we had on our trip (so far).

Very good indeed.

Went here for a 3+ course lunch with my wife and it's a fantastic place as far as the food and wine are concerned - highly recommended and very good value for money - I will definately book a table here for dinner next time I'm in the area. Do not be scared away but the blant outside and odd location!

I brought my friend along as a treat for her first visit to Paris. I had stumbled across this restaurant whilst looking on Tripadvisor.
Our reservation was for 7,30pm however when we arrived there was no customers. However we were made to feel welcome by the manager and it was nice and relaxed.
We went for the 5 course tasting menu and each course was beautifully presented and well executed. There was a slight disappointment with the beef which was not the best cut. It was cooked medium rare but was tough. The dessert was interesting, it was with a tomato sorbet, tomato confit, strawberries, green olives and olive oil. I wasn't convinced that it worked as a dessert and mentioned this to the manager.
However we had a really nice evening and it had a long walk back to our hotel afterwards to burn the food off.
Definitely worth checking out in Paris.

This was the second time we visited Restaurant Sourire. Not far, it is on a side street with no real foot traffic. This makes it a quiet and relaxing environment. The tables are well spaced with comfortable chairs. Now to the food. We had the tasting menu which was about five courses. We could see everything being freshly prepared for each customer with no predone assembly line food. All was absolutely fresh. I especially liked the mixture of textures with crunchy and smooth in several dishes. Food complex as well as tasty with great sauces and some unexpected flavors. A turnip side dish was served with the fish course I usually do not like turnips but this was great. The duck breast was succulent with perfect crispy skin. Not overdone. The dessert was wild strawberries with a custard. Perfectly done and constructed just before bringing to the table so not mushy. Service was prompt and pleasant. Hot night so we had water bottle on the table refilled multiple times. Visit this charming, quiet restaurant and you will want to go back for the food, service, and atmosphere.
