In the gardens of the Palais-Royal? Come and enjoy one of Paris’ most elegant restaurants.
Hidden beneath the colonnades of the Palais-Royal, a clear, modern kitchen awaits the visitor! The decor is a genuine thread that links Palais Royal Restaurant to its surroundings. Contemporary furnishings, the comfort of an exclusive table, tableware, lighting… Every detail contributes to a warm, sunny atmosphere, with particular attention paid to the harmony of materials and colors: natural, raw, mineral. In fine weather, the terrace is transformed to host lunches and dinners in the heart of the garden, and discover the flavors of a cuisine that has just been awarded a second star by the Michelin Guide (following a first in 2017). The honor of this award? The excellent work of chef Philip Chronopoulos. “A great joy for the team, who remained united and motivated by this objective during the months of closure imposed by the health crisis”, says Emmanuel Sauvage, head of Evok Collection. Proud of the acquisition of the restaurant by the Group in 2014, and of the man of precision and talent who, from Athens to Paris, transcends with virtuosity in the service of his dishes an anthology of Mediterranean perfumes and ingredients. ■
Of Greek origin, trained at the École Paul Bocuse, then a member of Joël Robuchon’s close guard, this young 35-year-old chef stands out for his successful experiences in prestigious establishments.
Under the colonnades of the Galerie de Valois, bordering the gardens of the Palais-Royal, you can enjoy gourmet cuisine that reveals textures, fragrances, flavors and colors.

Are you tempted by the Left Bank spirit? On the gourmet side, “Chiquette” offers a multi-faceted cuisine on a shaded patio.
When the warm weather arrives, we choose the terrace of the Le Cinq Codet hotel! It’s the obvious choice for sunny moments. And to relax in the heart of the lively Invalides district. Here, everything is unusual, discreet, refined and atypical. In the very chic 7th arrondissement, the Chiquette restaurant nestles in this former power station on the Left Bank, offering a different take on the art of city living: a singular, expressive place, a soothing atmosphere, contemporary luxury. All with a 1930s ambience! At the heart of this vessel, all curves and transparency and singular geometry, the patio offers a shaded and remodeled terrace. A timeless interlude where you can bask in the privacy of Japanese maples, fresh ferns and natural-colored furniture. The hustle and bustle of the capital fades away, making way for a tasty, refreshing break with chef David Maroleau’s cosmopolitan cuisine! His strength? A culinary style steeped in multiple experiences, from California to Mexico, via Asia and France. A respect for the cycle of the seasons, quality products and a single motto: the very best in fresh, healthy cuisine. ■
After his first role as chef at the Hôtel Montalembert, David Maroleau offers his own brand of cuisine at Le Cinq Codet: joyful, travelled and creative!
In addition to a planted patio, the hotel boasts a sunny terrace overlooking the Invalides dome! The perfect place to enjoy a timeless moment in the capital, out of sight.
