The atmosphere, the friendly staff, the great service, the location and of course the food - absolutely worth every euro and every minute.. A vegan cuisine that doesn't try to create meat replacement, but instead creates amazing and tasty food that opens a whole new...More

A lovely surprise to find vegan food so beautifully presented and also tasted delicious. The starters and deserts really were the stars. The main courses were a bit of a let down and not in the same league. My daughter who is vegan absolutely loved...More

This place definitely excels at being a gourmet restaurant, and one of the few gourmet vegans around. I've enjoyed a fine, full dinner there. I was satisfied by the food and service, although the prices were what you'd expect from a gourmet carnivore restaurant and...More

Went here for my 50th birthday and was really disappointed in how far the restaurant has gone down. Soy on every menu item. Lacked flavor balancing and dishes were just not good. I do not think I would ever go back or recommend again. Service...More

This is an elegant vegan restaurant with a lovely atmosephere close to Bastille. Soft music in the background. Menu has about 4-5 starters and 4-5 main courses. Each one is very creatively conceived, unusual. The presentation is outstanding in terms of aesthetics. And, the tastes...More

A most bizarre evening. First of all, if you book on-line, you have to choose one of two "seatings", either 1830 or 2030. We arrived at 1827, expecting a whole line of other folks who had reserved for the first seating, and lo and behold,...More

Exceptional vegan dining, one of the best vegan meals that I have had anywhere in the world. We had the seven course tasting menu and it was incredible. Each course was better than the last. Pricy but worth it. Go hungry if you are going...More

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
