I'm a chicago foodie and have been to many fixed priced gourmet restaurants. Our experience was outstanding. The 5 course plus 1 dessert was truly filling and the wait staff was completely attentive and lovely. The price was completely reasonable for the type of food and service we were getting, in fact, it seemed a little underpriced compared to Chicago... More

We went to Darroze yesterday with our two children. The restaurant offered nice atmosphere, food and service. The website says there is a menue for kids but neither the price nor its content is specifed there. We can understand that since two dishes - maincourse (duck), dessert (icecream) and one (1) glass of orange jucie - cost 58€. Completly absurd... More

I hardly give comments on restaurant where i go, last and only one I did was to share the wonderful experience I had at Yannick Alleno's Paris. Unfortunately I had the opposite experience yesterday night at Le Salon d'Helene Darroze. We were invited by friends therefore I couldn't provide immediate feedback.

We went here for our 20th Anniversary. While it is pricy, it was worth every penny. We have been to some great restaurants, but this one might be the best of the best. Everything about the evening was flawless. We had a five course meal. The portions were small enough that you could enjoy each one without overload. The start... More

Having lunch at Helene Darroze was an exquisite delightful experience. We went for the lunch formula: 3 starters, 1 main dish and 2 desserts. The first starter was exquisitely delicious: grilles calamari on a bed of black risotto, followed by a foie gras balls than an Italian focaccia with Parma ham, all starters were really unique and delicious. I chose... More

Helene Darroze is a wonderful restaurant to discover when in Paris. The cuisine has that Southwestern France flair, and colorfulness, and the " menu du chef " is a great choice as it demonstrates the full range of Ms Darroze's talent, sampling many of her best creations. The only problem could be, as it happened to us last week, that... More

A U.S. friend had recommended that we go to Helene Darroze for lunch. The colorful, modern setting was fitting for the innovative, tasty food served by knowledgeable staff. We chose a prix fixe menu that provided lots of variety to display the creative chef's ability. Go for lunch, or if you can afford it, dinner!

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
