Les Ombres at Branly

trav Feb 7, 2013 08:32 AM

We were in Paris 3 years ago and had a lovely lunch at Les Ombres. What do you think about it now? We also enjoyed Yam'Tcha, Frenchie. Itineraires. I have read and reread all the newer post on Paris CH and am having difficulty selecting restaurants for our 5 day end of April visit.
We are staying at Hotel Saint Germain on rue du Bac and I need to have some fish selections on the menu. I just made a lunch reservation at Spring.
I would appreciate any thoughts about where to eat and especially would like to know restaurants without a set menu if that is possible. Merci.

    Went to Les Ombres with one of the people who designed it early on, singularly the worst meal of my life, no exaggeration. Glad you did better when you went.
    For fish try Le Divellec in the 7th.

      As usual D&D hits it (Ombres) on the head - lovely terrace view in summer, poor restaurant.
      As for "Yam'Tcha, Frenchie. Itineraires" I'd drop Itineraires d/t inconsistency.

        john - the weird thing about your comments is that it mirrors my experience 4 or 5 years ago. Don;t these places get better or learn?
