On an unassuming street in Paris, we were served fantastic French cuisine. The restaurant itself is small and narrow but it is like a charming farmhouse in the countryside complete with rough stone walls and cast iron fixtures.

The service was excellent, with an enthusiastic waiter describing every dish and wine in detail in both French and English. They were extremely friendly and not like any Parisian stereotypes.

Now the food itself was of course the highlight. Four courses stunningly presented with just the right quantity, not too little or too much. The no menu policy is really a great idea, we only let them know items that we disliked and they did all the choosing for us. We had a soft shell crab in celery creme as an amuse bouche, a beautifully cooked piece of trout, followed by the most tender and flavoursome veal. The dessert of vanilla and mascarpone cream topped with green tea sauce, strawberries and a giant lump of candy floss provided an excellent and novel finish.

This is somewhere I will definitely return, to eat delicious food without having to expend any effort in choosing what I eat.

We dined at Qui Plume La Lune during our recent trip to Paris and found this to be a genuinely good dining experience. While a bit pricey, we very much enjoyed the mystery menu concept, the intimate venue of the restaurant and the friendly and attentive service. We booked for dinner online using TheFork.com and luckily, was able to secure seating on the same day.

When dining at Qui Plume la Lune, guests don't make dinner menu choices. Instead, one simply selects how many courses to try. Staff only ask about your allergies and don't reveal the dishes until they are served. Not to worry, the chef in the back is quite a craftsman and artisan with his ingredients and food stock, creating French and Japanese fused dishes that are bound to delight. In the spirit of this dining concept we offer nothing more than recognition that all dishes tried were quite tasty. We went for the 4 course meal and had no trouble finishing each course along with the amuse bouche and petit fours.

Since we did not know what we will be served, we took the recommendation of the host for wine, which turned out to be a good bottle that paired quite well with the majority of the dishes served.

In the end, we found Qui Plume La Lune offered a creative and interesting dining opportunity, and a good choice for those with curious taste buds or those looking for a gastronomic adventure. We liked the surprise menu and would be eager to try the restaurant again on future visits to the Marais district.

Note that the restaurant is only open from Wednesday to Saturday so it is well worth making advance reservations to secure a table.

We had chosen this restaurant based on the great reviews on both Tripadvisor and La Fourchette. We could not have been more satisfied with our choice. This restaurant really has all the ingredients we were looking for: Japanese/French cutting edge cuisine topped with great service and served in a nice romantic setting. The 4-course surprise menu (which were actually 6 or so courses) offered some exquisite dishes with surprising but tasteful combinations (like cod served with a chicken soup or milk veal with clams). The white wine recommended by the maitre was splendid. Although the restaurant is not cheap (we paid 255€ for 2x the 4-course surprise menu with rosé champagne to start, a great bottle of white wine and a coffee to end) it really is worth every cent. After our diner the maitre d'hôtel of this restaurent explained to us that he and the chef want to offer a unique dining 'experience' and not just cutting edge food. And that is exactly what they delivered... Very highly recommended!

I couldn't agree more with others who have rated this 5. We loved the food, matching wines, lovely decor and great, friendly service. It's not fussy- relaxed for the guest but you know the staff is working hard to make it an excellent experience for you. It's on our list to recommend to friends.

This is by far one the best restaurant I discovered in Paris in a while. This restaurant is close to La Marais district. The menu changes every day, and when you enter you have no idea on the food that would be served. On the menu all you need to choose is how many courses you want, 2, 4 or 5. When I went, we started with amuse bouche, followed by lobster, clams, foie gras, veal, etc. The best ingredients, fresh, well presented, accompanied by fine wine. Truly fantastic experience. The cheese plate was enormous and I could not finish I was so full. The bill was not cheap but if you are looking for something different, look no further.
