Situated on the top floor of the Pompidou Center, this Costes brothers landmark is itself a work of art. The modern dining room is composed of four bubble-like spaces decorated in aluminum and rubber. Large bay windows and a terrace make the restaurant airy and bright, giving diners a superb view over the capital. The cuisine is light: Millefeuille de Crabe et Champignons (crab and mushroom in filo pastry), Canard au Caramel et au Coco (duck in a caramel and coconut sauce) but don't forget to leave room for the classic chocolate mousse.
We went to George to celebrate my daughters Birthday. 8 of us dined, the service was excellent, the views of across Paris spectacular,the food OK, but charging 96 euros for a small chocolate cake with 3 candles on was a joke. Even the staff thought the manager was having a Joke, but typically French the manager sniffed and told us that this was the price! won't be going back.
Georges is an absolute must for those who want to experience Paris in all her glamour and beauty...excellent service (staff are also incredibly beautiful), amazing views of the city (book ahead and ask for a window couvert, there's nothing quite like dining whilst watching the Eiffel shimmer), contemporary fine dining does not get any better than this.
C'etait absolument parfait!
"Café Georges" is worth the detour just for its amazing view: roof floor from the center of Paris, no tall building around, and one feels much closer to all the surrounding monuments than looking from the skyscraper Montparnasse. The minimalist decor and furniture are extremely elegant and modern, without any pretention to compete against the view from the large windows. The roses on the tables have already become one reference in the Paris chic scene. The food is good (could find better of course), though expensive (have to pay for the view), the service is quite good comparing to the other fancy lounge clubs (eg Buddha Bar where you have to wait for 30 min to get the menu, then 30 min to pass the order, another 30 min to get your drink). Anyway, one of my favorite places in Paris, especially by night, I just cannot get bored with the view and the ambiance!
