Accessible via the Mairie d'Issy metro station, Marguerite 1606, the Domaine Reine Margot's new restaurant, nestles in a verdant, historic setting overlooking the Eiffel Tower, offering refined, seasonal cuisine. In fine weather, a superb terrace awaits you.

We're off to discover Marguerite 1606, the restaurant of the Domaine Reine Margot, located on the outskirts of Paris just past the Porte de Versailles. Chef Jean-Philippe Perol's cuisine is open to all, whether you're a resident of the hotel or from out of town, and brings the garden to your plate.

This historic site, once home to Marguerite de Valois (daughter of King Henri II and Catherine de Médicis), has been transformed into a luxurious five-star hotel by Jean-Michel Wilmotte, in keeping with its rich past and Monuments Historiques standards. The renovation incorporates modern elements while preserving the original spirit, notably in the desacralized chapel, now a rum-tasting area. The restaurant is located in the old historic building, in continuity with the chapel. It's a lovely marriage of the old and the new, under a glass roof bathed in light during the day and open to the starry sky in the evening.

At an angle, the restaurant reveals numerous tables overlooking alcoves, revealing the chefs and commis at work. The restaurant showcases orchard produce and plant-based recipes, a cuisine that is respectful of the environment and close to nature, while offering generous, tasty dishes. Chef Jean-Philippe Perol, with his creative approach, revisits the traditional Bouchée à la Reine to create a signature dish we love, the Bouchées Marguerite. A perfect puff pastry without being too imposing, and a minute garnish to keep the whole thing from getting soggy, that's what makes these mouthfuls such a success. For our part, we fell for the divinely cooked version with lobster, razor clams and fennel.

On the main course, we loved the perfectly cookedveal loin, so tender you'd want to roll around on the floor. Accompanied by roasted parsnips and fried Brussels sprouts, it's a no-brainer.

For dessert, if the Paris-Brest turns out to be a little too dense for us, the Honey Gavotte wins our votes. With its honey ice cream, farmer's milk mousse and caramelized bananas, it can be gobbled up without batting an eyelid.
