Accented by Asian flavors -- miso, tuna tataki, and matcha. Seafood was very fresh. The Fregola Sarda aux Girolles was happiness in a bowl! Service was lovely and attentive. Michelin is always spot-on!

We went with the family and had a most enjoyable dinner. We sampled pretty much all the dishes, as we were a large group, and they were all flawless. The atmosphere was great. Highly recommended, whether for family or for a romantic night out.

Cozy little restaurant on a small street. Service was great and the owners were super friendly. Food was delicious and unique with a bit of Asian influence. You can tell they really put effort into the menu. Would definitely recommend!

I am so impressed by this place and this couple. For only 48 euros you get amazing food prepared and served with passion. With only 16 seats and a staff of two you get an intimate evening in beautiful surroundings close to the palace in...More

I don't think would be the N° 1 restaurant at the place. It is only a nice place, good food, and professional people which creates a good atmosphere.

Not sure where the Fairmont is, but the restaurant is in the old city and quite a walk. We took a taxi from The Hermitage and I have a feeling the Fairmont may be quite close to The Hermitage
