We had lunch at Kei and what an experience. The meal was fantastic, the service impeccable and the value for money unparalleled. Without a doubt the best 1* I have dined at and we definitely didn't feel we missed out, having lunch instead of dinner, as is sometimes the case.

We took at dinner the least expensive menu which offers little choice, except for meat. It costs 99 euros and is amply sufficient. My partner took the 'pigeon laqué' that he liked and I took the beef from Galicia which had a supplement of 12 or 17 euros, I forgot. The beef was delicious. We both greatly enjoyed the starter,...

The chief definitely deserves his two stars!!! From the starters to the desserts he brought us in his wonderful world, a world where the dishes are telling you poetry. The oyster was very well executed, the dish around the vegetables was just amazing it was delicate, with a lot of sensibility, the gnocchis were fantastic, the fish was terrific a... More

This has to be my favourite restaurant in Paris. As soon as we arrived at the restaurant we were welcomed by the staff and escorted to a table by the window. The room is delightfully decorated and we felt very much at home. For lunch there is a choice of two surprise menus and we decided on the larger. Each... More

A solid Michelin Star experience. At first, my fiancée and I were unsure of the vibe within the restaurant, but we warmed up to it quickly. Staff was incredible and were understanding that we were on a budget. Food was outstanding, and meeting Chef Kei was a highlight.

We've been to Paris 14 times. We've eaten at many 3 star restaurants - Eleven Madison Park, Paul Bocuse, etc. Several in Paris.This little 1 star restaurant was better than any of those! We chose the 4 course tasting menu. In looking back at my pics, it was 6 courses, not including the amuse bouche. The menu is a blind... More

This 12 table restaurant, decor themed in white with well spaced tables- is a special occasion restaurant. A one michelin star restaurant with a 145 and 198 euro tasting menu- is absolutely among the once in a lifetime experience. From the 2 sommeliers to the attentive waiter Charles- it was an experience. Creative, innovative, fresh and delicious. Worth a special... More
