Le Divellec Haute Cuisine Restaurant

Le Divellec is known for La Cuisine de la Mer, or cuisine of the sea as it translates to, and this is an up market haute cuisine restaurant that serves some of the best seafood available in Paris.

Owned by the chef Jacques Le Divellec, who was originally from Britanny, he came to Paris to perfect his skills as a chef and worked at Le Grand Vefour for a couple of years, but wanted to get back to his roots of presenting seafood dishes, and he first opened a bistro in Paris at the port of La Rochelle, but always keeping busy and wanting to expand further he then opened Le Divellec, which was an instant success.

Le Divellec Haute Cuisine Restaurant

The interior decor of this fine restaurant is mainly comprised of wood with dark blue upholstered chairs that creates a sophisticated yet elegant and trendy setting, which makes you feel like you are on a plush yacht and being nestled in a district that is filled with government offices and embassies, it is frequented by many of the top political and social figures.

In fact, situated in the 7th arrondissement in Paris, at the intersection of Rue Fabert, just south of the River Seine and the Quai D'Orsay, Le Divellec enjoys a majestic view along the Esplanade des Invalides and is also within walking distance of numerous museums in Paris such as the Musee Rodin and the famous Musee d'Orsay.

The exquisitely prepared seafood cuisine combines a sophisticated menu using a wide variety of fish and shellfish along with Mediterranean ingredients and they even touch on the spectacular with their lobster press, but the majority of meals are simply prepared to bring out the true flavours for the utmost enjoyment for the clientele.

You can experience, oysters, roasted sea bass, langoustine casserole with truffles, obviously lobster but one way is accompanied with coral another as is lobster with pan-fried duck foie gras, also the pressed lobster soup or lobster basque as it is known is another incredible dish.  Yet there are many others great dishes on offer such as tuna tartare, turbot fillets, whole-smoked bass and mussels cooked in white wine with a creamy sauce that has a hint of curry, known as mouclade Rochelaise, and steamed langoustines in green sauce, just to name a few.

Now with most haute cuisine restaurants in Paris you will get an excellent cellar for a fabulous choice of wines and Le Divellec is no exception.  The wine list has a fine selection of vintage wines, a great variety of white wines that include many perfumed with the scents of fresh herbs, along with fresh red wines from some of the best vineyards and wine regions in France.

However, please do remember, if you are thinking about enjoying one their glorious desserts, then this does have to be ordered at the start of the meal when you are ordering your starter.
