Par Michel Roth
There are so many Michelin stars restaurants in Paris, that it’s basically impossible to do them all, especially on a budget you’d think…
Well that might be true for the first part of the sentence, the second actually is possible. You can access an online guide of famous one star-Michelin restaurants, where they’ll make you a special lunch pricing, that makes it affordable to taste something out of the box.
We tried La Table Cachée by Michel Roth, it’s on a rooftop, so you have a gorgeous view on the Hotel de Ville. What’s funny is that in the title it says “hidden”, because it kinda is, since it’s inside one of the most luxurious department stores in Paris, the BHV.
Overall we found the experience quite elegant, and we definitely liked the views and service. But when it comes to the food, it wasn’t top notch. The wine selection was delicious, but the plates were almost empty, which was strange.
You would usually do small plates for a five to seven course meal, because people wouldn’t be able to finish or enjoy what they’re tasting otherwise. This was only a three course meal, so the main plate should be relevant.
Thank goodness we weren’t that hungry to begin with, since it was summer time and we typically eat less then, but it was still a bummer. Especially because we came for my sister’s birthday, and they completely forgot about it. In my opinion, this isn’t really a Michelin restaurant, I don’t really understand why they even have one (star).
For me it’s hyped up. Like, now that we’ve tried it, I wouldn’t even sit there for a dessert with a drink, because despite the place being cute, it’s not filling even for the tiniest break. A bit disappointed, because there was also a lack of creativity. I’ve had craziest meals in more original restaurants around the world.
Rating would be 5.5 / 10. We still had a good time, but not necessarily thanks to…
