This is a rare experience - quality dining and slow dancing - very romantic. The food was very good and so was the service.

Low lighting, soft live music, romantic atmosphere - wonderful for couples new and old. Attention to detail is the all encompassing theme of this restaurant from plating to the attire of the staff. arguably Michelin star quality food.

We LOVE Pigalle - we love the old style music and dancing (mixed in with some newer tunes of course) - we love the service and being welcomed back and the atmosphere. We love the food and general evening out. Absolute winner every time.
