Having an unusual decor of red and black and a mix of Spanish and
Japanese atmospheres with ham hanging from the ceiling and bamboo plants with the kitchen
open, where you sit watching the waiters, chef and other staff prepare the cuisine and
serve, this innovative concept in Paris has become
extremely popular and combining the French food with a hint of the Mediterranean and other
cultures blended in, will make for a different yet meal to remember.
Located at the distinguished address of the Pont Royal Hotel on the Left Bank of the River Seine and in the 7th Arrondissement of Paris it is
situated in the heart of Saint Germain des Prés, just a few steps away from the Musee d'Orsay museum.
Opened in 2003 within this restaurant in Paris
there is only room for just over 40 diners at a time, and although the team at l'Atelier
de Joel Robuchon supervises breakfasts, room service and private dinners for the hotel
guests it is open for lunch and dinner every day of the week.
There is something for everyone on the menu such as steak tartare, spaghetti carbonara,
deep fried whiting, caramelised quail with shallot sauce, avocado with crabmeat, ravioli
of crayfish with foie gras sauce, chicken liver terrine, roast duck with spices such as
ginger, shellfish shipped fresh from Brittany, fresh seasonal
vegetables and much, much more to tempt you.
Restaurant Guide Key Points
L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon is open for lunch from 11.30am through to 3.30pm, with dinner
being from 6.30pm through to 11.30pm.
It is open every day of the week, but reservations are only taken for the first sitting at
11.30am for lunch and at 6.30pm for dinner and the rest of the time it is pot luck,
whether you will be successful in getting to dine here.
The cost for a main course is around 30 upwards and there is a fixed price menu for
approximately 120 but you can also opt for tapas style small dishes and others that
are less of a cost, which start from around 10.
Suitable for all the family, smart dress is required, but it is more suited to intimate
dining than it is for groups.
The nearest Metro station is the Rue du Bac.
