We were glad we didn’t stuff ourselves with cheese as the desserts, like the food, were delectable and abundant. First was ‘Textures de fraises’, or “textures of strawberries,” which was made of the flavor-packed small French strawberries that we’d tasted throughout our trip. There was a strawberry ice, strawberry sorbet, strawberry puree, and dried strawberries on top. It was so good and accompanied by the well-chosen Chateau Soucherie 2007 Chaume dessert wine. Next was ‘Noir,’ a small dense chocolate cake with a dark chocolate cream on top. The cool cream with the dense cake was another great experiment with textures, and they complimented each other perfectly.

We were stuffed so we had to refuse the chocolate mousse, pistachio apricot tart, rice pudding, etc, and just took a couple of small French macaroons. As we were drinking our coffees, the attentive, generous wait staff brought us chocolates, financiers, and thin slices of apple tart to cap off our meal.


The meal was such an incredible smorgasbord of foods served like artwork on the plate by impeccable wait staff who noticed every detail. They were always there to refill our water glass or push the chair in for us if we came back from using the facilities. With this kind of service and food you know it must be pricey and you’re right. Aside from businessmen who seem to meet there more frequently, most people you’ll see are celebrating special occasions. guy savoyThe regular price for this 3-star Michelin experience is 285 euro each not including wine, but there is a 3-course ‘discovery’ lunch for 100 euro each which is a good way to try it out (mention it while booking). Right now they are offering a fabulous summer deal (but only for two more weeks) which is 5 courses and 5 wines for 130 euro per person for lunch or dinner after 10pm. I almost want to fly back to Paris to partake!


 

 

 

 

 

Our experience was a symphony of perfection— the food, the wine, the service, the atmosphere. You can usually get one or two right, but to have everything in one spot you know you must be at the best restaurant in Paris: Guy Savoy. It was the perfect end to our time in France and I’d recommend it as the crowning glory on any honeymoon.
