Review on Les Fables de La Fontaine

Les Fables de La Fontaine is small bistro specialising in seafood overlooking a small square with a fountain called Fontaine de Mars, that was used as a watering hole for Napoleon's cavalry. The bistro was part of the renowned chef Christian Constant's stable of restaurants, who also has other places in the same street, but he has now sold it to David Bottreau who oversees front of house. The contemporary décor has exposed brickwork featuring large pictures, gold banquettes and simply laid wooden tables illuminated by spot lights in the ceiling.

Fresh seafood is the name of the game, and simplicity is the kitchen's hallmark. The menu changes by the season, with daily specials depending on the early morning's catch of the day from Brittany and Normandy. Langoustines with mayonnaise might open the show, with sole meunière to follow and finishing with a simple red fresh fruit salad and fromage frais. There is a short wine list with some good wines offered by the glass. Service from the wait staff, sporting simple black aprons is attentive and friendly and for perfectly executed dishes this Michelin starred restaurant hits the mark.
