This little pearl is easily missed, discreetly tucked into a wall close to Les Halles. We were 7 for lunch, and all enjoyed it immensely. The service was impeccable and the food superb. Choosing the lunch option gives the low budget traveller a chance og brillant Michelin food at just 56 €. We will definitely go back next time we... More

Booked 4 for lunch on a Wednesday and after a glass of Bollinger sat down to enjoy a lunch with little idea what we were getting. I like this idea of being surprised by the food the chef cooks up. One of us had a gluten allergy and while this wasn't a problem for the restaurant the solution was in... More

As soon as I was seated at my table a lovely calm descended. The room, while getting progressively busier, had a pleasantly muted atmosphere, and was both comfortable and elegant tones of taupe and white. I had the 56 Euro lunch, featuring 4 courses and dessert. All courses were focused on fish or seafood, though there was an option to... More

A friend told me to go to Kei because its amazing, etc. I am not really into degustation menu and I am always "afraid" of it However, we tried Kei and was really not worth it. Very, very expensive, more than Arpege which is wonderful!! The food apresentation was nice and some good surprises like the desert and the "pichon",... More

I had an excellent dinner which clearly deserves a five-star review. We had succulent food overall, but paid around 500€ for two. Although the food was super, it was not worthy of that amount.

We had a fantastic meal in a beautiful minimalist dining room. The staff was outstanding, and couldn't have been more helpful, from finding us a table, helping us with our big luggage, ensuring we were served in the time we had. A big thank you to everyone, and huge compliments to a hugely talented young chef.

Being a frequent guest to Michelin star restaurants, we arrived with high expectations. Than again, what do you expect, booking a 56€ lunch menu? Not overly much, but we were wrong, very wrong: Amuse bouche, three entrees, main and dessert, they just knocked our socks flat off. Yes, the visual impression of the food arrangement will leave you with awe,... More

Unique experience with genius Japanese Chef Kei. Each bites create an emotion. Simple, elegant and very creative but in the same time respecting the basics of the French Cuisine. I you have the opportunity please don't miss it. Even the bread is astonishing.
