Le Saut du Loup

Author: Anothertravelguide.com0 COMMENTS

The fact that Le Saut du Loup is located in the Museum of Decorative Arts in the Louvre definitely makes this place even more intriguing. Getting there is somewhat confusing, though - there is no sign which would guide you to the restaurant. It shares the entrance with the Museum of Decorative Arts; in the foyer, where visitors of the museum crowd during the day, a policeman greets you at night. The only evidence that you are actually inside the Louvre is the large windows and the view of the courtyard. Otherwise the interior has been completely transformed: black ceilings with writings, grey and white walls, grey floor. The place has two levels: one is occupied by what could be described as the café area with bare tables; the restaurant is situated on the second floor. Cuisine: very good fusion food. Excellent bread, extravagant presentation, a fine steak, elegantly cut into three pieces instead of being served whole as usual. Interesting plates with lettering, oblong and boat-like. Excellent service. A single, yet very serious, drawback: the tables are extremely small and the chairs - not particularly comfortable. Waiters are forced to perform a perpetual equilibristic circus trick, shifting and moving each object to make room for next plate with a precision to a millimetre. Customers in their turn have to mind the movements of their hands while eating, talking and gesticulating: Heaven forbid that you should send something flying! It does somewhat spoil the enjoyment since this actually is one of the places where dinner is an experience.
On the other hand, like with all restaurants of this style, be prepared for your dinner to be more of a sophisticated nibbling than a proper meal. The servings are on the small side, and not exactly cheap either: in the region of EUR 100 per person (wine included).
