Ultra avant - garde cuisine by inimitable French chef-provocateur. The atmosphere in the room is fantastic when 10 people are having fun together. If it's only two, it would probably not be the same. The experience is made for 10. More people don't fit in...More

Have been there for menu A and B. Exciting, outstanding and very creative. They pair each dish (which was like 12 courses) with dif wines, music, holograms and serving. All top level. Looking forward for coming C menu after October holidays...

Clearly, a lot of effort has gone into putting together this epic 20+ course meal-turned-threatre production. I was stunned by the seamless execution and lengths that the team went to in order to produce a perfect dinner experience. You are taken to a remote warehouse...More

No, they don't do anything special. The whole menu is special! You have absolutely no choice, it is a succession of more or less 12 plates of culinary art. When you pay one thousand dollar per person for a menu, you don't... More

Conceived by Paul Pairet for over 15 years and opened in May 2012, Ultraviolet is the first restaurant of its kind uniting food with multi-sensorial technologies in order to create a fully immersive dining experience. A single table of ten seats only. A dining room of high-end technology. A 20-course "Avant-Garde" set menu. All guests sit together. The experience unfolds as a play. Food leads. Each course is enhanced with its own taste-tailored atmosphere: lights, sounds, music, scents, projection, images and imagination... And food.
