This was an amazing experience and meal. Multiple courses, each beautifully crafted, plated, and explained. Very nice alcohol paring, including a potent homemade sake. Was fun to meet other travelers in the chef’s home. Attire is business casual. Table is down a set of stairs and bathroom is up a set of stairs, which should be considered if you have mobility issues.

We committed a cardinal sin by arriving late at a group dinner because we had miscalculated the time we needed to get there.. It was a rainy evening, without an umbrella and without much sense of direction we even got lost after getting out of the métro station, although the place is actually not far from it.
Although being late we were warmly welcomed by Jean Yves and his sous chef,and when we went down to the dining room, we saw all smiles on the faces of the waiting guests. They must be very glad to see us as dinner could start. We were all seated on a long table, there was a couple who are doctors from Brazil, a British couple from Dubai, a local French couple, a surprise birthday dinner for the wife, an American couple and other ladies from United States. All were very friendly and warm. Then the food came, exquisitely presented, from entrée to dessert, each with an introduction from the chef and his suggestions of how to eat the food in order to get out its best flavors, We can see that Jean Yves is passionate with food and his cuisine.

It was our first experience of having dinner at a chef's home in Paris and we were pleasantly surprised what an excellent experience it was, we both went away with fond memories of that evening.

This is a one of a kind experience that I am so grateful we embarked upon celebrating our 20th anniversary. We planned the dinner for our first evening in Paris with hopes to gain a better idea of our surroundings. Not only did Chef Jean delight our palettes with amazing food, but he also provided helpful tips to tour the city.

Keep in mind that this is not just dinner, but an experience. There was a planned purpose for each pairing and they were carefully explained. My husband and I have not looked at food the same since. We will definitely look up Chef Jean Yves and book his table on our next trip.

I’m a foodie here and this restaurant is up there with all the 3-star Michelin restaurants I’ve been. The sophistication of food/taste combination is extraordinary. It’s also quite a unique dining experience that you feel like as if you’re in a culinary museum with the chef guiding/explaining to you the art of each course with details of the food origins/ingredients/cooking methods etc.
Must try!

Loved the experience of interacting with the Jean Yves and knowing exactly what I'm eating and tasting. I'm a dessert person so I loved the dessert (see pic of macaroon) the most but everything was delicious. I was so eager to eat everything right away that I forgot to take pics of the two courses
Above all, he offers the quality and presentation of Michelin restaurants for less than half of the price. We went to a Michelin two stars restaurant the night before and we appreciated this dinner with Chef Jean Yves much more!

服務非常周到,餐廳氣氛佳,每到菜都色香味俱全!我非常高興能夠和廚師一起共享晚餐,因為他為吃貨的我介紹食材、菜色、並且建議品嚐美食的方式,使味蕾豐富的感受不一樣的美味!因為我只想著趕快吃,所以有2、3道菜忘了拍照 餐點很有特色及創意,完全不輸米其林二星的晚餐,而且價位不到一半!性價比高,我非常推薦愛好美食的人來嘗試和廚師Jean Yves共享晚餐!
