On arrival the menu is not big which a good sign. Sablés parmesan as "amuse bouche" were great and the 39€ menu was excellent. Appreciable service and never far away. The wine wow the wine... perfect even for the cheapest white Loire one. Looking for a "bonne table" near La Défence then you should consider this pretty restaurant.

From the outside easily to overlook. Inside nice atmosphere, enthusiastic staff. They offer a menu (starter, entree, Dessert) for just 45 EUR of very high quality. We loved the food and had a great evening there.

The food is good. Waiters friendly but not over friendly. You have a good cart and fast service. Expensive beer. Nice to sit outside. Next to the street but that is not disturbing.

Everything is dressed in white including the Chef himself. You know a good restaurant when the Chef come's to your table and asks what you think. You get what you pay for. From the outside it looks like anywhere else, but go inside and after your first mouthful, your immersed in French cuisine with all the tastes intertwined. The wine... More

La Défense seems to lack restaurants and a bunch of the ones I found opened much later. Luckily we found Le Tournesol, which opened at 7 for dinner. We didn't have a reservation but they managed to seat us. The look of the restaurant was more modern, very nice and bright. Service was impeccable, they kept checking on us without... More

The food was delicious, nice decor, friendly staff. They even have a children's menu. Will definitely go back to this restaurant, specially in this city where there is not a lot of good of restaurants, this one is from far the best one!

I was invited by a colleague who really has an amazing gastronomy advantage over most people I know. I thoroughly enjoyed the Bone Marrow starter (how very French!) and the Veal with Veal Sweat bread. The wine which Loire Valley went very well with the Veal.

I had the pleasure to chose this place by reviewing the feedback on Trip advisor and I can confirm at 100% the quality and the selection of great food. I had the Fried prawns and then the Salmon and everything was simply sooo good! I really recommend this place. Great surprise.

Very nice French restaurant. Small but interesting menu. Nice atmosphere which combines traditional and modern look. The food and wine was great, however with 50 people in the restaurant 3 waiters is a bit short for efficient service.

I went in this restaurant for a business dinner. It's a small restaurant but very nice with a good list of wine. It was a perfect combination of french flair, excellent food and wine. The prices area bit expensive but the quality of the food it worth the money. Recommend dining here
