We went for the fixed price lunch with a glass of wine and espresso additional. What a bargain. Pumpkin and ricotta crepe to start only slightly diminished by not being served warm enough. Pork tenderloin with celery root puree, toasted hazelnuts and fruit mostada was a perfect compliments. Desserts were wonderful
with the exception of a rather ordinary cookie plate.

Alain Pramil made us real happy and was the only place in our stay we visited a 2nd time. So the decor and food is not Le Grand Vefour but such delicious food at an affordable price so we can keep coming back is unusual in Paris. Beside great food, we found the staff very gracious and fun, especially the young lady who served us on our 2nd visit. If you are looking for a place where you can actually carry on conversation, this is it.
Too noisy for conversation on a busy Sat. night. Service was "wham, bam, thank you ma`am". Food innovative and good but excepting for a delicious pumpkin dessert tasted of the same peppery hotness. Perhaps better to go during the week if you hope to have conversation with your dining companions.
Here for lunch with the 11 year old fish loving grandson who gave it a thumbs up.
It was a menu with teen age appeal but not so much for sophisticated adults. Good selection of fish prepared decently. Downstairs was a very noisy room.
