We dined here for my birthday last year and we really had a great time and amazing food. It's a must try and I heard this year they've just got a Michelin One star!! Well deserved!! Hope... More

Well worth taking the road less travelled. L'Escargot 1903 was rewarded first Michelin star this year. Well deserving the honor. Located very close to Puteaux station at Western suburb of Paris. Lovely restaurant with terrace seating that would be perfect during warmer weather. Excellent service. Only surprise menu available. I choose the €79 (5 courses). Some surprising flavors that works... More

A colleague living in Puteaux talked to me about this restaurant : thanks to her ! This is really a nice restaurant, with few choices of menus but each of them with a delicate research in the taste, visual also... you will really 'experience' a nice lunch. And really not so expensive compared to the quality of the dishes. Also... More

After a very long period of transformation and renovation, the restaurant reopened. It took us quite a while before finding the time to go back. The wait was worth it. The Chef is highly creative, takes well evaluated risks and offers a refreshing approach to kitchen. Yes, the place is worth the visit and the four course diner an excellent... More

Dinner with friends in L'Escargot, which used to be a landmark among the traditional restaurants around the busy business district of La Défense. L'Escargot closed for renovation and reopened a few weeks ago, with a new and renowned Chef and higher ambitions in terms of cuisine. It was our first experience with the rejuvenated restaurant and we were very positively... More

We picked this place mainly because of the positive reviews on TripAdvisor.... What a deplorable decision! The atmosphere was indeed very nice and that further boosted my expectations! The food on the other hand was a joke: tasteless micro-portions (even for French "cuisine") served in huge plates!The starter was one single stuffed raviolo! One of our guests asked for a... More

Bit of a nightmare finding the place. Should have been a 20 minute walk from the hotel, turned out to be a 15 min taxi! We were ten minutes early but again no sign of our reservation and they were all running around trying to get the place ready - we were the only people there and maybe had they... More

From the very beginning we were warmly welcomed into the restaurant. Service was friendly and fast. For starters almost everyone in our group of 8 had the scallops and we could all agree that they were delicious. Some had artichokes with foie gras or lamb rolls. Well-prepared original dishes. The main course was also delicious, cote de boeuf for half... More
