Welcome to ‘Hotel California’ in the heart of Paris.

Ideally situated for admiring local Parisian fashionistas, this al fresco terrace restaurant runs along the façade of the hotel, creating a natural spotlight of attention. Perfect for a shopping pause or an evening cocktail.


The centre of fashion

The perfect vantage point from which to admire the endless catwalk that is avenue Montaigne. An avenue dedicated to luxury and hosting the flagships of high fashion, including number 30, the historic building where Dior was founded on December 16, 1946.

Chefs' Profile

Philippe Marc

After learning his craft in a number of 3-star restaurants, Philippe Marc began working in the kitchens of luxury hotels, travelling the length and breadth of South-Eastern France and working his magic in such outstanding hotels as the Vista Palace in Roquebrune, the Don César in Antibes and the Hôtel de Paris in Monte Carlo where he met Alain Ducasse. He then left the hotel sector for several years, instead heading up a family restaurant in Lyon, before coming to Paris where he took over the management of the kitchen in a small restaurant in the Latin Quarter that quickly became a huge success. It was then that the man from Jura again met up with Alain Ducasse. Since 2000, Philippe Marc has been the chef for the Relais Plaza, the Plaza Athénée’s chic grill-room, as well as catering for functions held at the hotel and providing the meals served by Relais Plaza.

Angelo Musa

Executive pastry chef, Angelo Musa, is a winner of the World Pastry Chef award and 2007 winner of ‘Meilleur Ouvrier de France’.
