This is for serious foodisy I am not a fan of 8 to 12 courses so I cannot judge it fairly if you are in Paris it is one of ten 3 star restaurant so you should give it a try.

Pierre Gagniere offered us one of the best food we’ve eaten with plenty of vegetarian options. The experience altogether stands out with a lot of variety being offered at the highest quality and taste. Good ambience and well informed staff and waiters.
