A dinner like a journey back in time to a long-forgotten era! A deeply humble chef serves emotional dishes in a beautiful setting!
Probably my last dinner with Monsieur Pacaud, the 76-year-old host holding his ⭐️⭐️⭐️ since 1988!
Thank you very much for the many wonderful culinary experiences at L’Ambroisie over the last 28 years of my life. Gastronomy has certainly changed significantly in terms of technology, modernity and the associated menu sequence. Nevertheless, we will miss... More

The best of the best when it comes to classic French cooking.
For example the exquisite "Feuillantine de langoustines aux graines de sésame, sauce au curry." The dish is visually captivating, with a clever presentation—a crisp sesame disc conceals wonderfully plump langoustines resting on another sesame crisp below. This delightful little sandwich sits atop a bed of tender, deep green spinach. The langoustines themselves are a revelation—sweet, tender, and expertly cooked, easily standing out... More

Some highlights of my amazing 3 star-Michelin meal in l’Ambroisie, Paris. Classic and classy! Fantastic sauces, bold flavors, impeccable ingredients.

Pomme de ris de veau braisée à la financière, ravioles de ricotta à la sauge
Fromages frais et affinés
Some say that if you are planning to visit Paris’s temples of gastronomy then ⭐️⭐️⭐️ L’Ambroisie should be at the top of your list. If you are looking to be terrorised by the snootiest of snooty French waiters or the brutally priced wine list (€40 is the least you’ll pay for a glass of white), or if you enjoy trying to decide between the €110 langoustine dish or...

Back to my favorite classics for some more excellent food.
The ingredients, the precision of the cooking and combination of flavor is unparalleled.
The Pastilla de thon rouge aux abricots et pistaches, salmigondis de tomates for example amplify this. I usually stay away from tuna dishes as the are boring. However this one was not. Quite the opposite. The tuna, a senaka cut, was seared on the outside and raw on the inside. It was wrapped in filo-dough and accompanied with tomatoes, pistachios... More

If you like classic, that is the place to go. And it is so good! Feuillantine de langoustines aux graines de sésame with sauce au curry is unchanged for decades but still tastes fantastic.
The pigeon course, an order off the menu, was most likely the best I have had a long time, if not ever.
I hope that this places will go on for much longer.

Tarte fine sablée au cacao amer, crème glacée à la vanille Bourbon

The next stop in Paris was to ⭐️⭐️⭐️ L’Ambroisie. Flawless cooking in a fairly pompous environment. Definitely not my cup of tea and of course eye-wateringly expensive for dishes that didn’t really excite. I’m glad I went once as a reference point but I wouldn’t go back (unless someone else was paying 😉😬)
