Les Fables de la Fontaine Restaurant Review

: David Bottreau runs this tiny yet cozy restaurant to the delight of all. The setting has faced refurbishment, endowing it with bay windows, raw stone and wooden fixtures, and prices are less stiff than before. The lunch menu is €25 and the dégustation is €70. The twenty-odd-year-old Julia Sedefdjian helms the stoves, crafting products from the sea. The menu includes raw and baked haddock with crusty egg yolk and seaweed vinaigrette, skate wing with sautéed spinach and capers, and a lobster hot dog. For desserts, choose among litchi soufflé with red fruits and poached pears with vanilla and chocolate ganache. A few wines are available by the glass.
