Description: Named in retrospect and translated as the "Beautiful Era", our inspiration for this restaurant emerged from the period in European social history during the late 19th century that lasted until World War,It became recognised as the "golden age" - a time when new technologies and medical discoveries were found and when politics, art and literature underwent radical transformation. In Paris, restaurants achieved a new splendour and cachet for one to parade and where fashion began to move in seasonal cycles.In the culinary sense this period is enormously relevant to our philosophy of progression, optimism and very modern.We would like to think this beautiful era is strongly characterised by our cooking which is rarely serious yet rooted in classical French cuisine and have extended our repertoire to embrace some exciting 'outward looking' far eastern variations.

We decided to have our celebration dinner at La Bell Epoque and we were not disappointed. The food was out of this world and the service was great. We will certainly use this wonderful restaurant when we are next at the hotel in May 2017.

La Belle Epoque's style and casual elegance mirrors the Sofitel's own ambience perfectly. It is a very accomplished restaurant with a fine wine list. I was disappointed with the veloute starter, which I found somewhat bland, resembling a warm bowl of creamy milk. But the wild mushroom pie was fabulous and the cheese selection beautifully presented by a waiter whose passion for cheese was unparalleled! My wife's scallops were done to perfection, as was her filet mignon.
We always look forward to dining at La Belle Epoque!

After a long flight from L.A. there's nothing like a truly great meal. You must go with the "Menu Degustation" , a 7 course meal. Opt for the wine pairing. It will blow your mind.
