    Le Lobby can be found located on the first floor inside of the Peninsula Hotel in Paris. Upon entering the restaurant you will notice the high ceilings, polished chandeliers and lavish decor, you will also be aware you have arrived somewhere very special indeed.

    The dining room of the restaurant itself is huge, and features large dining tables that are cleverly placed so that neighbouring conversations are minimally intrusive. When we arrived we were shown to our table and were impressed with its comfortable seating.

    We chose to dine with a wine pairing on the evening, and were charmed by the sommelier who’s vast knowledge was immediately evident.

    To start, I enjoyed the leek en papillote served with ginger-scented king crab, wakame and sesame seeds. This was served with a glass of Pouilly-Fumé, Château de Tracy, 2013. The delicate flavours of the starter were gorgeously complimented by the crisp, dry white wine. It truly was a delightful start to our evening.

    My partner opted for the free-range chicken pâté from the Landes region as a starter, which was served with artichokes, duck foie gras, black truffle and salad. This decadent dish was paired with a glass of the 2014 Domaine Parigot Meursault Le Limozin.

    “Le Lobby delivers the complete Parisian dining experience.”

    For my main course, I experienced the beef fillet served with agria potatoes, Cadoret oyster and beef gravy. This dish was simply delicious and the highlight of the evening for me. This was served with a glass of the 2008 Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac to cut through the rich flavours, this was another super dish which demonstrated the culinary craft from the kitchen.

    My partner enjoyed the steamed French cod fillet for her main course served with daikon radish, and ginger-scented bay shrimp broth. This was paired with the 2015 Domaine Bernard Gripa Saint-Joseph, the fish was set off faultlessly by the fresh, floral bouquet of the wine.

    For dessert, we shared the empress rice pudding on a bed of citrus marmalade served with hazelnut streusel, blood orange-lemon sorbet and Tchuli pepper. This dish was just exquisite, and served with a glass of the Tokaji-aszu 3 Puttonyos, Chateau de Sarospatak, 2011 dessert wine; it provided the perfect end to what was a flawless meal.

    We would thoroughly recommend a visit to Le Lobby. Not only is the food and wine offering exceptional, but the service is also as expected for such an establishment; warm and welcoming and on the evening we visited, we were left wanting for nothing. It’s not difficult to come across great food in Paris, but Le Lobby delivers the complete Parisian dining experience.
