Two Michelin stars

Inspired by the Salon de la Paix at the Château de Versailles, the majestic setting has been carefully enhanced by more playful touches, including iconic Eero Saarinen Tulip chairs, two decorative screens and a sculpture capturing the suspended movement of water. These modern elements sit perfectly amongst the antique mirrors, crystal chandeliers and elegant frescoes, creating a stunning setting for the outstanding cuisine.

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.

DESSERT

Worth the wait

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.
