Javette – not to be mistaken with La Javette bar by the Seine – is a new restaurant set on 20 rue Dauphine in Paris 6th arrondissement. Gemini Family’s latest creation also doubles up as a wine bar.
In front of the façade, our eyes are caught by the place’s green decoration. The restaurant enjoys a covered – or not – terrace outside and many tables all along the restaurant that also enjoys a story, the head in ivy.
Exposed stones on the walls, lights and seats made of bamboo, we love the lush jungle decoration unveiling a big bar at the back.
Have a seat and order some nice cocktail as soon as you get in. Enjoy some creative aperitive to shake up your taste buds: pisco, ginger and lime, it is very tasty.
The menu is quite short but displays nice seasonal options. We go for the delicious seabream ceviche, lime, pomegranate and avocado, perfectly seasoned, and the pineapple burratina with sun-dried tomatoes. Fresh, smooth, it is so incredible.
Moving on to main courses, the day we came, we at cod fillet with chorizo, vanilla-flavored leeks, as well as bluefin tuna tataki with soy and vegetable wok. The cod is perfectly cooked, enhanced by chorizo, and the tuna is wonderful with its side of crunchy veggies.
To wrap up the meal, we go for the unmissable moist chocolate cake and ice cream scoop, as well as the chocolate and passion mille-feuille, and this is a very beautiful sweet note.
In other words, we feel good, we have a nice menu and a wonderful wine selection, is there anything else to ask for?
