L'Ephemere looks simple from the outside but the cuisine inside is delicious. It is not excessively complicated but it is creative and innovative, with simple substantial dishes given an interesting modern touch. Excellent seafood and desserts in particular. The service is also attentive and friendly.

Found it just opening on a rainy Sunday evening. At 19h30, they had not yet set tables, but were very welcoming. Amuse bouche was a trio of STALE sushi, peanut cream and delicious sliver of raw sardine with olive. Long, long wait for next part...More

Judging from the chef's more than considerable talent, this place should have a michellin star... Just sitting down and looking at the flatware, and serving dishes you know this lunch ( in our case) or dinner experience is going to be good .. But surprise!...More
