It was well worth for money for a 7 course tasting menu. Each course of the menu is well presented and the quality of the foods is excellent. With the wine paring, it enhances even more the taste of the dish.

Had dinner here last night booking the Travelzoo 6 course tasting menu, which included an amuse bouche of goats cheese and herb oil. Some of the courses were very good, others missed the mark. We had a Tomato cerviche following the amuse bouche which was good, lots of intense baked tomator flavour. Then a Tuna dish which was covered in... More

We were totally amazed with the dinner that we had. They have limited menu, however everything is cooked freshly and service is quite fast, as well. We will definitely visit the place soon again. Well worth the money!

The food in this restaurant is excellent. Sofitel never fails to impress and now we have found a very clever place to eat when we overnight before an early flight. The food is light, with an interesting combination of flavours although the portions for a circa £30 main course were 'nouvelle'. Chips were boring, and not home cut, but the... More

Staying at the Sofitel we chose to eat here for the evening. We decided on the tasting menus and boy it was just sensational. A brilliant pallet of interesting fabulous food. This restaurant was better than most of the famed Michelin starred places we have been to. A must meal to have.

I went to La Belle Epoque with my partner for our anniversary and the experience was exceptional from the service to the food. And the atmosphere was nice and calm. Our waiter Petru wonderful, he was very attentive and recommended this lovely lychee wine. Will definitely go again.

We went here on our Anniversary. I was bit worried as the site didn't suggest much for kids nor did the reviews. I must say, they are so kid friendly. To my pleasant surprise, they did have a Kids menu, which was to the point and no farce. You don't want ur lil ones looking confused over a plate of... More

Lovely meal at La Belle Époque this week . I had the beef and my husband the fish and both were delicious . My husband is dairy intolerant which can sometimes be difficult when dining . Here it was a breeze with then even warming different bread to avoid the milk in the normal offer . As a restaurant in... More

Another recent visit to the restaurant confirmed the exceptional culinary standard offered here. A table near the water wall was romantic. The service efficient and unobtrusive. The Puligny Montrachet wine,served perfectly was testament to a great cellar. The range of fresh bread and butters,as well as the amuse bouche were an excellent start. The entree of lobster/frogs legs ,in particular... More

Named in retrospect and translated as the "Beautiful Era", our inspiration for this restaurant emerged from the period in European social history during the late 19th century that lasted until World War,It became recognised as the "golden age" - a time when new technologies and medical discoveries were found and when politics, art and literature underwent radical transformation. In Paris, restaurants achieved a new splendour and cachet for one to parade and where fashion began to move in seasonal cycles.In the culinary sense this period is enormously relevant to our philosophy of progression, optimism and very modern.We would like to think this beautiful era is strongly characterised by our cooking which is rarely serious yet rooted in classical French cuisine and have extended our repertoire to embrace some exciting 'outward looking' far eastern variations.
