Figaroscope (2011) “Le tourteau, d’un bon kilo, fraîchement livré tous les matins et cuit au court-bouillon. Il est servi entier, accompagné de petites rattes bio, de mayonnaise maison nature ou aux herbes, de pain au levain et de beurre salé. La meilleure partie ? Se défouler sur les pinces de la bête grâce au marteau de bois mis à disposition…”

What people are saying

Not Drinking Poison in Paris (2015) “The upside of a city that trades on history, however, is the persistence of such majestic creations as Le Dôme’s airy millefeuille, gargantuan portions of which are hacked off a tree-trunk-sized whole that the servers parade around the restaurant with justifiable pride.”

Condé Nast Traveler (2015) “Eight years ago, Alain Ducasse bought this 1920s brasserie, which he restyled as a sort of Zen temple to seafood. It’s simply the best fish in Paris.”

John Talbott (2010) “… has not gotten better (well maybe a bit) since the arrival of Jacques Maximin, just different.”

John Talbott (2009) “The amuse bouche was a typical Ducasse type Ball jar filled with fish cheeks and eggs – a good start. Then I had the tuna mi-cuit-cru that F. Simon found too cold, mine was perfect; my friend had the lobster soup with tiny grey shrimp in the bottom that was divine…”

Alexander Lobrano (2009) “It’s likely to become one of the best seafood restaurants in the world now that Jacques Maximin has been recruited to oversee the menu… steamed sole with the most magnificent aioli I’ve ever eaten. Next, perfectly cooked salmon with a sauce vierge… then a magnificent hunk of camembert, and a drop-dead good pain perdu…”

Reviews of interest

Time Out (2013) “Beware: a Joh Sushi Moriawase assortment consisting of 15 pieces of seafood sushi will set you back €35. But freshness and culinary know-how come at a price, and this is a very special restaurant.”

Simon Says (2011) “… un menu superbe de fraîcheur et découpe affinée…”

Le Figaro (2010) “… comment font-ils pour que leurs sushis et sashimis soient si bons?! Le poisson semble avoir tout juste quitté les flots et le riz est d’une délicatesse inouïe. Accueil aimable et décor évidemment minimaliste.”

Le Figaro (2011) “Lorsque l’Écume Saint-Honoré, l’un des meilleurs poissonniers de la capitale, se dote d’un espace dégustation, cela donne ce bar à coquillages pour avaler six huîtres sur le pouce, de rares pouces-pieds ou un saumon fumé, le tout accompagné de cris de mouette en fond sonore. Rafraîchissant.”
