    Our new favourite on the right bank. We were hopeful when we came across positive reviews that we would enjoy a memorable lunch. Our expectations were exceeded. We enjoyed an entree of foie gras paired with passion fruit and the plat of choice was perhaps the most tender roast veal we have tasted. Polite and attentive service, an interior that dates back to the 15th century and situated on a small quiet street, this restaurant is a must try for right bank dining.

    A disappointing experience all round. The food was good quality but dull and certainly not memorable. The service was rather poor: we were treated better than many others—when one diner asked what the fish of the day was, they were told it was “fish, what more can I tell you?” Another couple were left waiting 45 minutes for their amuse bouche. The lack of air conditioning or open windows made the summer heat profoundly unpleasant. There are many better places to go—a pity, since the building is quite special (built in 1407) and has the potential to be charming. The starting point is to stop treating your diners with contempt.

    The staff is friendly but the food was really not good, especially for a price weigh too high. I booked a table in the restaurant and came at time, but they hadn’t any table available and arranged us a table outside the restaurant. One of the main reason we came to this restaurant was to check the place that is the oldest inn in Paris. So pity :(

    An old historic place. Quite good place to sit down and eat dinner. We took the menu and all the food we had are great.

    My children are very much into Nicholas Flamel at the moment and wanted to visit this restaurant to get to see the inside of this "oldest house of Paris." Though they did not have the Harry Potter kids' meal that we had seen on their website, the food was delicious and enjoyed by all. Fabulous experience!

    Service was amazing, a bit better than the food which was a bit mild for my palette. Menu would be fine for someone who is daunted by French food perhaps.

    Wonderful food, great atmosphere, and our waiter was very attentive. It was the best food we had in Paris the past days. The setting is cosy and elegant.

    Random quiet underwhelming street in a semi locals area in Paris? Yes, please! Such a quiet and quaint restaurant. Reservations required. Phillipe was great. He was great with our kids. They were served chicken with sweet potato, so delicious my daughter ordered a second plate. The food was AMAZING. Such a great experience. Every plate was light, yet flavor so. Delicate, yet satisfying. The wine flight was fantastic. Every wine paired perfectly with its plate. I am assuming the menu changes. The meat we had was tender. The fish flaky. The foie gras was good even though it wasn’t my favorite. The vanilla ice cream was everything. The puffed cheese bread when you arrive, 10 stars. The sweet potato w/ shrimp ravioli: omg. Price wise, it seems expensive but it really isn’t. Think about ordering 5 plates anywhere for 65 euros: unheard of. The experience and service was priceless.

    This is a little jewel of a restaurant with a fascinating back story. The food was delicious but slightly small portions for the main entree. The lamb was fantastic. The soufflé perfect. Atmospheric. The service good, but a bit rushed.

About the restaurant

"INTIMATE AND ROMANTIC - This is a historical monument! Dressed stone, beams, everything is vintage, to be precise, from the beginning of the 15th century. This inn, built by a philanthropist alchemist was formerly a restaurant for poor people... Today, the place remains emotionally charged, vibrant with an authentic spirit. And the cuisine has gone up a notch.

THE ALCHEMY OF FLAVORS - the sophistication of the cuisine of Auberge Nicolas Flamel is particularly appreciated through the "
