Hélène Darroze Review

The most celebrated female chef in Paris is now cooking at the Connaught in London, but her St-Germain dining room is an exclusive setting for her sophisticated take on southwestern French food. Darroze's intriguingly modern touch comes through in such dishes as a sublime duck foie gras confit served with an exotic-fruit chutney or a blowout of roast wild duck stuffed with foie gras and truffles. At its best, the food lives up to the very high prices, but for a sampling without the wallet shock, her €35 seven-course tapas lunch menu, including a glass of wine, is one of the best deals in town.

    Hélène Darroze Review

    My wife and I and two friends had a Saturday lunch at Helene Darroze's restaurant in early October, and came away with mixed reactions. The first part of the meal was excellent -- delicious food and attentive service. But at the end of the meal, the staff seemed to lose all interest in us, even forgetting to bring an extra coffee I had ordered. This isn't what I expect in a Michelin-starred restaurant. As well, the room was over-heated, and the furnishings starting to be a bit tatty, given the price. Not a bad experience, by any means, but not stellar either.
