What they do it's not easy and they take some risks with this fusion kitchen. In this restaurant it works really well, but would it have worked as well If they went 100% Japanese? Food fantastic with Delicate taste all the way, but Wine pairing inclusive sake works on most plates not all.

Chef Yoshitake Hiroki has made this stop[ across from Notre Dame Cathedral an absolute must when in Paris. Using french ingredients and giving such unusual twists makes this a different experience each time. Whether in the street floor normal dining room or the ground floor vaulted and Japanese style the experience is calm and superb.

We went there several times over the last few years and we have never been disappointed. Service is friendly and food exquisite. We always enjoy to have lunch when we visit Paris.

Decided to try this restaurant at the behest of my in-laws. They know food, and I was intrigued because it was a Japanese-French fusion. The only think available for lunch was the Degustación menu, which is where the chef makes the food and you eat it, or not... as you chose. Obviously, if you aren't brave enough to have a... More

It's not easy to describe this little gem and do it justice. The staff is so professional and polite and the food is just beyond amazing... just sit down and let them serve you dish after dish of beautiful creations.

In fairness, the food was exceptional. The chef is talented and creative, preparing complete dinners each night. Guests are not given a choice, although they will make an effort to accommodate food allergies. The reason for the low rating is that our (very expensive) evening was marred by the 65 Euro per person wine pairing. For a total of about... More

This was a wonderful dinner, comfortable and delicious in every way. The courses were artfully presented, both in terms of the food preparation itself as well as the inventive tabletop items which visually complemented the food. The flavors merged seamlessly, the sea bream (dorado) with the most gentle but frothy sauce was a highlight for me, as were the other... More

Staff was friendly and considerate with great services. Foods are amazing. My bf told them it was my birthday, they organized a surprise for us at the end, love it. It's pricey but so worth it. Must go

We really enjoyed this Japanese French fusion experience. Service was friendly and efficient. The subtle flavours of the sea bass and the crap appetizers were lovely and memorable. A great night out.
