A repeated experience and just as satisfying; La Régalade under its chef Bruno Doucet never disappoints! Highly recommended!
At the beginning of October 2012 we had a wonderful lunch at La Régalade Saint-Honoré. We were four and we had a very leisurely meal. One of the first things to be mentioned about this excellent restaurant: attention, light-handed service, no rush. One of us asked for a menu in English; no problem. We asked for explanations on the menu and they were patiently given.
An "on the house" generous portion of terrine de campagne maison with support of cornichons and wonderful bread kept us company until the appetisers arrived. I forewarned my friends that the portions will be very generous, but the terrine proved just too tempting…
The restaurant took special care to accommodate my wife's requirement for a lactose-free meal, both at the main course, which was adjusted accordingly, and with the dessert.
Main courses: the ladies chose the sea bream and the monkfish, respectively. The men showed less imagination and ordered the same appetisers (a sensational risotto à l'encre de seiche et calamar) and main courses (very excellent, melting in the mouth poitrine de cochon fermier croustillante). We separated at desserts, when two of us had the cheese plate, one a specially prepared fruit salad, and I had the soufflé au Grand Marnier, a sinful closing act.
The "formule" (appetiser, main, dessert) is presently priced at EUR35, which represents exceptional value.
A bottle of Cairanne blanc was very reasonably priced and served well this wonderful lunch.
We warmly recommend La Régalade to all our friends who visit Paris and we will continue to be faithful customers ourselves.

An extraordinary feast at an extraordinary price - run, don't walk to La Regalade St. Honore!
I have never been to the original La Regalade, in the 14th arrondisement, but I can say that this newly opened branch in the rue St. Honore was one of the highlights of my trip to Paris and gave us a meal to die for. From the terrine de volaille that starts you off to Grandma's riz au lait or a wonderful St. Marcellin for dessert, you will be a very happy camper.
The restaurant is small and minimalist in decor, but there is nothing minimalist about the food, which is fresh and wonderfully prepared. The wine list is well priced and the service professional and unobtrusive but relaxed. All in all, I can't wait to go back. And all for 33 euros for three courses! How does anyone else stay in business?
