Do we really need to present Dessirier? This institution based in Paris 17th arrondissement is certainly one of the best fish restaurants in Paris.

Dessirier is what we commonly call an institution. Set since 1883 in the Place du Maréchal Juin in Paris 17th arrondissement, this irresistible fish restaurant is managed by two-Michelin-star chef Michel Rostang and his daughters, and in some way, it’s part of the local furniture. Without looking dusty!

The restaurant offers a very chic sea cuisine that is very modern – including the presence on the menu of a few classics of the French gastronomy such as the avocado with shrimps (€28). For instance, we tasted the sea bream and lobster tartare (€38), beautifully soft, and shelled crayfishes tails served with a zucchini cream with candied lemon and kalamata oil (€33).

Among the dishes available on the menu, we have a filet of red mullet and soft carrots with spices (€38), pan-fried squids (€41) and even a gratin of Martelli Macaroni and Breton lobster (€49). We went for two excellent dishes, meaning a thick wild-caught blue sea bass steak (€44), mashed potatoes and chicken whole juice and a half-cooked and roast bluefin tuna (€36) cooked just rare with stuffed Provence baby vegetables (look at this baby zucchini!) and perfectly seasoned.

The most gourmet foodies will go for the whole grilled fishes or cooked in a salt crust – grey sea bream, coastal young turbot, John Dory, between €41 and €54 per person – or for the poached or roasted whole blue lobster (€76).

Desserts at Dessirier are in line with the main courses and the starters: of a high level. We went for rather classic choices: a fabulous chocolate soufflé (€13) and a vanilla mille-feuilles with a salted fudge sauce (€13). But the restaurant also has fresher and more fruity desserts like a frozen peach, a lemon thyme sorbet with a redcurrant coulis (€13) or a soft apricot, chilled melon soup and verbena sorbet (€15).

For fish lovers or simply fans of exceptional produces, the Dessirier institution is THE good address likely to meet your needs thanks to its French know-how… unique.
