Review on Relais Louis XIII
The Relais Louis XIII restaurant is set in the 16th century medieval house where Louis XIII was proclaimed King of France. This two star Michelin restaurant is found down a cobblestone street on the rue des Grands-Augustins, in the heart of the St-Germain-des Pres district. The dining rooms have open stonework, ancient oak wood beams and relics from it's time as a monastery, candlelit at night the setting is very atmospheric. Over the years there have been numerous famous people who have dined here such as the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, President François Mitterrand and Prince Pierre of Monaco.
Manuel Martinez is the chef and owner of Relais Louis XIII and has an impeccable pedigree having held the post of head chef at La Tour d'Argents and was also awarded the Meilleur Ouvrier de France, Master Chef of France.
Local cuisine is top of the agenda and Martinez goes to great lengths to source the finest of ingredients for his inventive menu and is in direct contact with his suppliers throughout the year. Typical starters on the carte could be Breton lobster ravioli, foie gras and cream sauce with cèpes, before mains of roast Challandais duckling and finishing with a millefeuille, cream sauce flavoured with vanilla and bourbon. Service is very efficient and the excellent wine list has several offerings by the glass.
