The restaurants where one can spend a magical evening in Paris’ Le Marais district

Le Marais is a lively district where you can easily find a charming and welcoming restaurant. Some places particularly stand out due to the quality of the cuisine offered or the décor of the restaurant. A quick tour of Le Marais’ best restaurants is within easy reach of our exceptional hotel.

L’Ambroisie, 9 place des Vosges 75004 Paris

As its name indicates, the most refined palates will enjoy L’Ambroisie, which means “food of the Gods” in ancient Greek. Since 1986, the chef here, Bernard Pacaud, has offered high-class and creative French cuisine. With three Michelin stars, this restaurant on Place des Vosges is the ideal setting for a unique evening. Crystal chandeliers, silverware and wall tapestries provide the decor for sublime cuisine with a careful balance between classic and imaginative dishes.

Bel Canto, 72 quai de l’Hôtel de Ville 74004 Paris

Enjoy a magical evening in an unusual restaurant. Bel Canto offers an exceptional experience combining culinary pleasure and musical delights. Can you imagine anything more French than an evening at the opera paired with fine dining? A quartet of opera singers, accompanied by a pianist, performs famous pieces every fifteen minutes in the centre of the room: Carmen, The Magic Flute, Don Giovanni, etc. The fare is served with a twist on classic French cuisine: tournedos of hake, herb-crusted rack of lamb or a supreme roast of guinea fowl.

Restaurant H, 13 rue Jean Beausire 75004 Paris

The chef Hubert Duchenne is the mastermind behind Restaurant H, recognised by Gault et Millau among others. A young talent highly regarded in the industry, he began his career alongside Jean-François Piège and Akram Benallal. Designed like an apartment, the restaurant with retro-futuristic decor was designed for diners to feel at ease, like they are at home. In the evenings there is a choice of two menus served with 5 or 7 courses. Each ‘itinerary’ offers dishes with a suggested wine pairing from the house. A revelation!

Gaspard de la Nuit, 6 rue des Tournelles 75004 Paris

A Paris institution since the end of the 19th century, Le Gaspard de la Nuit has not stopped modernising while staying loyal to the recipes which have been its success. In the kitchen the classics of French cuisine are revisited with particular emphasis on seasonal products. Three set menus are on offer: the Traditional Menu notably intriguing with its magret de canard sashimi, the Bistro Menu, or the Taster Menu, served as 7 courses, which lovers of gourmet food will find irresistible.

Tour d’Argent, 17 Quai de la Tournelle 75005 Paris

Just a few minutes from Le Marais, head to this big name of French cuisine: Michelin starred since 1933, Tour d'Argent is an institution that needs no introduction. The exquisite flavours prepared by the chef Philippe Labbé are equalled only by the sublime view of Paris from the restaurant. Classic dishes and original creations, high quality products and a carefully prepared dessert menu: there can’t be any doubt, the Tour d’Argent deserves its reputation.
