L’Astrance – a little bit strange!

The S.Pellegrino World’s Best Restaurants list rates this place as the 11th top restaurant in the world, it is certainly one of the hardest to get through to on the phone. I managed to get a reservation via a contact in the industry, but found I had problems reconfirming it, eventually after numerous attempts at different times of the day I managed to reconfirm.

It is quite a small room with a mezzanine area.  Every table was taken, this was so obviously the place to be.

The service was first rate, but we found that the food was a bit hit and miss, which is surprising for a 3 Star Michelin.



Some courses worked, others tasted either a bit odd or bland, the desserts were in my view the highlight.

They also finished off the meal by serving tomatoes!  L’Astrance was definately a bit strange.

  1. What was on the dish on picture IMG_3355.jpg ?
    I know L’Astrance, and just by looking at those pics I knew right away that
    the overall would be a bit more simple, less spectacular than the items I’ve sampled on my last dinner there. You can go back there and have a spectacular meal from start to end.
    I too had hard time getting them over the phone both times I made reservations there (last time I was in Paris, over a year ago).

  2. Our visit was over a year ago, and unfortunately I can not really remember the dishes – which speaks for itself! We had lunch at Le Bristol the week before and that sublime meal is still memorable.
