Le Louis XV – Alain Ducasse at the Hotel of Paris
With three Michelin stars, Le Louis XV is a decadent unique fine dining experience at the Hotel of Paris. Led by chef Alain Ducasse, the restaurant offers to fine-dining connoisseurs a unique culinary experience inspired by the French Riviera.
Le Louis XV – Alain Ducasse à l’Hôtel de Paris cuisine tells the story of the Riviera, now more than ever. Produce, flavours, colours, everything is here. Fish comes from local boats, herbs and vegetables from inland. The menu that renowned chef Alain Ducasse created with chef Dominique Lory asserts itself with modernity and youth.
Vigorous jus, intense broths, fresh condiments, it primarily reveals the exactitude and precision of taste. Moreover, some emblematic recipes of Louis XV are still à la carte, and new signature dishes have been added.

If you like fresh pure seafood, certainly you will enjoy a delightful lunch with an amazing backdrop of the Port.

Finally, the staff is courteous and fabulous service is something clients agree upon here. Sitting on wooden benches, in a genuine ambiance, discover a corner of Brittany, right below the Prince’s Palace! This is the place to join locals over a glass of organic wine and savour fine products.
