The experience, the story, the food

At the very heart of the restaurant is our dedication to celebrating the essential nature of every ingredient. This results in delicious dishes of great subtlety, created with simple produce. From here the journey begins.

Inspired by the Salon de la Paix in the Chateau de Versailles and reinterpreted by Philippe Starck, this is a room of majestic, classical elegance combined with contemporary delight and humour.

Dessert is the grand finale of dinner at Restaurant le Meurice Alain Ducasse, and it’s definitely worth the wait. As a rare treat for diners, award-winning pastry chef Cédric Grolet breaks all the rules with innovative plated desserts centred around his three key principles: one flavour in multiple textures, one surprise element, and of course stunning presentation. The results are exceptional.
