I had diner in this 1 star Michelin restaurant and food was really fantastic: delicate, nicely decorated with a discreet and present service. On top, the place is gorgeous in particular the garden place surrounded by montgolfieres. Let's have a look you will be amazed to discover such a place in Paris.

Excellent tasting menu. The Pigeon was very good and a few surprises. Price is steep, but we found it a great experience. Staff was fantastic.

My wife and I visited the restaurant for the brunch today. We were extremely disappointed. The buffet, the presentation and the quality of the food are far below standard. 80€ (without alcohol) per person for such a brunch is a real joke.

We are very pleased you enjoyed the brunch we propose every Sunday as well as the quality of service we offer. As you said, the terrace is a privileged place, very rare in Paris, and completely hidden by hundred-year chestnut trees.

Our choices of champagne was extensive. Each course was imaginative and well-constructed. The flavors and aromas were mind-boggling. The wine list was quite extensive, and we enjoyed an exceptional 1er cru burgundy.

It is a beautiful, private outdoor space in Paris. The food is fantastic and the area is closed to the general public until mid-evening, making it a fantastic little oasis. Go there for any meal of the day and you will not be disappointed. A Must.

Description
One Michelin star. The Saint James Paris is altogether a hotel member of Relais & Châtaux and the home of the exclusive Saint James Club. The restaurant is open to the public Monday to Saturday for dinner only (7:30pm to 10:00pm) upon reservation - tables up to 8 persons. It is set in the theatrical but cozy dining room of what used to be the Thiers Foundation, and a perfect setting for a family reunion, a romantic celebration or a business dinner. Dinner is served in the gardens, under the sky of Paris, when the weather allows. Discover the generous & refined creations of our Chef, Jean-Luc Rocha, Brest Craftsman of France (M.O.F.) and of our Pastry chef Mathias Alet. To accompany their dishes, our head sommelier Elise Esnouf has imagined subtle pairings. True to the traditions and centered on the products themselves, the dishes of Jean-Luc Rocha are developed on a classic base to which he adds touches of surprise. He always achieves a balance of flavors in order to offer comforting and understandable compositions. Excellence is his goal, and the highest degree of conscientiousness his best daily tool. We look forward to welcoming you !
