Reviews of interest

John Talbott (2012) “… still has an astonishingly comprehensive carte plus 4 specials; something for everyone… We argued among ourselves as to who got the best starter; all were superb… desserts were terrific as well…”

Le Figaro (2011) “Au rythme des saisons, Cyril Lalanne donne dans la sincérité et la gourmandise avec un très fort accent du Sud-Ouest: foie gras poêlé, magret de canard, porc noir de Bigorre… Seule obligation pour s’attabler ici avant votre séance: réserver.”

Time Out “Nothing about La Cerisaie’s unprepossessing red façade hints at the talent that lurks inside…”

  1. Sorry I was not precise there:
    2 x 3 courses +1 side dish and a bottle of wine – 102€ for two people!

  2. mickey, minutes before I read your comment I made a reservation for mid October. Last time we were in Paris (Dec/Jan 2013) the restaurant was closed for vacation.

  3. La Cerisaie is still fantastic!
    The “decor” is now some kind of grey felt on all the walls a large mirror and the menu on a blackboard.
    I guess the fabric is there to help acoustics in this very small room. To me it lends the room an austere ambiance. Let not this scare you. The two female waiters are all smiles and takes you coat as they welcome you. They do a very good job and speaks English well.
    As entree we both had a fish soup, thick and tasty and reminding us of Provence – the Rosé we had may have added to this. As plats we had breast of goose from Perigord and an extra side dish of green beans (fava?) spiced with bits of Chorizo. The goose was juicy and tender, tasty and very little fat, three generous slices of great meat. The dessserts was Baba à l’Armagnac et crème fouettée à la vanille and Sablé doré aux figues comme un crumble – both delicious.
    They know they are good here and they are – service is effective and kind but it is not a place you linger for hours after your meal. Two seatings prohibits this and probably keep the prices affordable.
    Rhis was my second visit at La Cerisaie and I can’t imagine a visit to Paris without eating there.
    3 courses + 1 side dish and a bottle of wine 102 € for two!
    Do reserve a table a few days a head.
