Overpriced and absurd service. Our food was brought to the table and literally taken away to be given to another customer. One dish was served cold and had to be returned to the kitchen. The waitress couldn't keep her stories straight as to why she...More

We are excited to have a reservation at L'Ami Jean for our first trip to Paris over Easter weekend! My wife has dairy allergy- would she have an enjoyable experience at L'Ami Jean or are there very few, if any, dairy-free dishes? I understand there is no set menu... we just don't want to cause an inconvenience on the kitchen to accommodate her dietary needs.

L'Ami Jean is a Parisian restaurant. Chef Stephane Jego, born in Britain, wanted to keep some of the BASQ identity ue of the restaurant when he resumed teaching in 2002, and made ​​it one of the jewels of the trend of the gastro-bistro capital. Trained by Yves Camdeborde to Regalade in the 90s, Stephan started to stand on its own feet ten years later to provide insider unique culinary experiences, sincere and renewed. Because the constant questioning is his credo. Around a cohesive team, it offers exceptional products through recipes (re) invented daily, always claiming a special relationship with many producers. The restaurant is open from Tuesday to Saturday.
