Restaurants & Bars
The gastronomy of Haute Couture
Hôtel Plaza Athénée is home to five restaurants and bars, all overseen by our wonderful and world-renowned chef, Alain Ducasse. They provide a variety of atmospheres to suit all moods – but make it rather difficult to leave.
25 avenue Montaigne, 75008 Paris
While we get back to normal, please be aware that our bar and restaurant opening hours may have changed. Le Relais Plaza, Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée, La Galerie, Le Bar and La Terrasse Montaigne are open as usual, but La Cour Jardin will remain closed until spring 2021.
Where true luxury is the time and space in which to appreciate creative, incredible food.
Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée
Here, Alain Ducasse tells a personal and radical story, continuing the work he began twenty-five years ago. He represents the naturalness cuisine, inspired by the fish-vegetables-cereals trilogy, with the help of his chef Romain Meder. Healthier and more natural, more respectful of the Planet, it delivers a free and nearly instinctive interpretation of Haute Cuisine, revealing the produces’ original flavour, from the noble to the humble, all exceptional.
