Reviews of interest

Emmanuel Rubin (2014) “Changement de toque et valse complète de la carte qui en finit avec la cuisine de pointe pour lui préférer un style «néo-brasserie» bien sous tous rapports.”

Thierry Richard (2012) “Deux coups de cœurs à table : Bar de ligne en carpaccio avec crème d’huîtres et caviar de France (d’une fraîcheur émouvante dans sa décoration florale) et Spaghettis maison à l’encre de seiche et homard bleu…si vous voulez parler contrats ou séduire une belle des beaux quartiers, pas d’hésitation, cette adresse est faite pour vous.”

Alexander Lobrano (2012) “I was impressed by the humbleness of Duka’s technical skills–he’s a remarkably good cook but he doesn’t show off. Instead, he let’s his produce star…though it’s far from being cheap, L’Instant d’Or is actually a very good buy. Why? You’re getting intelligently original modern French haute cuisine for half the price of what you’d spend elsewhere in the neighborhood, and the tongue-in-cheek art-gallery decors of the three very differently decorated dining room proposed very different settings as well.”

Emmanuel Rubin – Le Figaro (2012) “Un chef de discrétion, des assiettes soignant l’allure, des appellations disposant la truffe et le homard, une cave ne se compliquant pas plus l’existence qu’à déléguer grands bordeaux et jolis bourgognes et, au final, ce sentiment d’une maison qui s’habille le soir.”

    One of the finest restaurants Ihave visited (and I have visited many all over the world). Food was exceptional and decor was matching. Though a little expensive, but it is worth the price and more.
