Had a dinner there early in September, the garden set up was very cozy, friendly service, family managed place, very good food. As we are moving to Le Vesinet, i am sure this will be a regular place to be.

We had heard from our friends that this restaurant was amazing. They ate here on their last visit to Paris and could not stop raving about it. So on our first day to Le Vesinet, staying at Villa La Riante, we made reservations for dinner. We found out that the Chef was the owner's husband, what a cook The owner... More

Some of the dishes we tried included whipped zucchini topped with caramelized carrots, tomato soup with wasabi, incredible mashed potatoes topped with flavored tomatoes and mussels, and chocolate mousse. Our waitress spoke English very well, although I would encourage... More

We stayed in the little hotel attached to this restaurant but didn't get the chance to eat there until our third day. We found out that we had been missing one of the best little places to eat I have encountered in Paris. The restaurant is nothing much to look at, but has a pleasant garden with multiple tables for... More

Dear Mr Bunn, Thank you for your kindness. I'm glad you liked our cuisine as it is the reason of our presence!

We do our really best to satisfy our clients. I... More

I'd rate this the best place to eat in my area of the western Paris suburbs, (covering Croissy-sur-Seine, Chatou and Le Vesinet) and its price/quality ratio is good enough to be worth a trip out from the centre (20 min from Opera on RER line A to Le Vesinet Centre). The restaurant (and hotel) are right next to the station... More
