This is a very good restaurant along a small road with an un-prepossessing frontage. However once inside there is a warm welcome from the 2 waiting staff. Around 24 covers at 8 tables- hence you need to book. The food was of a high standard with the turbot and gambas being a high point. The melon sorbet at the end of the meal was second to none. As mentioned by other reviewers, this is not a speedy service restaurant as everything is cooked to order, so you should not be in a hurry. There is however a scarcity of vegetables with the dishes.

Le Gavroche is a classic, white table cloth French restaurant that oozes with class and sophistication.

It manages to combine traditional cuisine in more modern packages. I had a crab and shrimp appetizer that was crafted into a modern idea of a spring roll, as well as a beautifully-plated steak that was perfectly cooked and surrounded by root vegetables.

Service here is mostly excellent, yet borders on almost uncomfortably formal.

Prices here are high, yet the food is worth it for the most part.

The biggest quibble I had was the pacing of the service. Two courses required almost 3 hours. We debated having dessert, yet were tired from a long day of tourist-ing, and didn't want to stay here over 3 hours.

If you like, they offer 6 courses in a tasting menu. You can choose any amount of courses from 3 to 6 at different price points starting at 65€ and increasing 10€ with each additional course. You can also order a la carte.

I highly recommend having every member of your party order the same number of courses to keep things on track.

Definitely book it, yet expect to spend a lot of time here.
