    Our Parisian friends recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed at all. They have a seasonal menu, and the summer menu is now out. The manager helped us in English and made fabulous suggestions with both food and accompanying wine. We loved each course - from the flashed grilled langoustines to sea bass and lamb. We finished with a cheese plate and then some dessert wine. We'd go back here in a flash!

    I used to live in Butte aux Cailles several years ago and this was my go to spot. Even after coming back to Paris to visit , I ALWAYS make an effort to come back here for dinner. A lot has changed in the last 15 years, but one thing is constant: the food, ambiance and service are always very good. There was a new chef and a new menu on my visit and it didn’t disappoint. Must haves: if it’s on the menu, get the veal medium rare, grab a bottle of Cote du Rhône and just enjoy yourself. They also had a chocolate dessert with coffee mousse that I hope never leaves the menu. Our dinner party is still talking about it and when we can come back to Paris to have it again Prices are reasonable for the quality of food that you will have. Merci beaucoup, L’Avant Gout....on sont voir en Juin!!

    There was a booking problem so we had to wait for a table - which was fine - however the staff seemed rushed off their feet and there was a lack of options as everything seemed to have gone already - the waitress was kind and we felt it wasn’t her fault but it was rather underwhelming and our starters seemed frozen - we didn’t want to make life more difficult for her so we just drank the wine and tried to enjoy our evening

    Excellent food! Very refined and tasteful. Service was very polite and cordial but was completely disorganized and seemed overwhelmed which resulted in long waits.

    Ceux qui ont connu "l'Avant Goût" il y a quelques années vont être déçus. Malgré les titres alléchants, les plats sont fades. le 1er plat est servi après 40mn d'attente alors qu'il y a 6 personnes lorsque nous arrivons. La déco, qui n'a jamais été exceptionnelle est encore plus austère . globalement décevant !

    Des entrées et des plats que nous avons dans l'ensemble beaucoup appréciés, même si nous avons pu être surpris par l'association des goûts de prime abord (beaucoup d'épices exotiques et de légumes "oubliés") petit bémol sur les desserts qui n'étaient pas à la hauteur des plats selon nos goûts.
