Le George is part of the gastronomic experience at the Four Seasons Paris George V Hotel. There are three restaurants with three different chefs and experiences.

Chef Simone Zanoni is the chef at Le George and we can really feel his Mediterranean origins — he grew up in Italy where he learned to cook by his grandmother’s side.

The restaurant offers a simple, tasty and shareable cuisine which makes it very enjoyable to share a meal with family or friends — or maybe your loved one.

Of all the restaurants at the Four Seasons Paris George V Hotel, Le George might be the most casual one — while still being very chic and high-end.

AMBIANCE AT LE GEORGE PARIS

There’s a unique ambiance in Parisian restaurants that you can’t find anywhere else. You definitely find it at Le George. The whole room is very bright and luxurious. My favourite spot is the newly opened glass wall and roof — it’s the brightest part of the restaurant, perfect for photos.

WHAT WE ATE AT LE GEORGE PARIS

APPETIZERS AT LE GEORGE PARIS

To start the meal properly, we had a few appetizers. First plate that was brought to our table was roasted prawn skewers with Cremona mustard sauce. The delicateness of seafood mixed perfectly with the sharp taste of the mustard.

As soon as we got done with the prawns, then came a scrumptious looking plate of raw marinated kingfish along with lightly seared red tuna topped with black truffle petals. We savoured each piece slowly to enjoy this flavourful moment.

After tasting such good food, I didn’t think it was possible to have something even better. They proved me wrong as soon as I took my first forkful of onion tarte tatin with parmesan ice cream. Picture this — an onion cooked for many hours and then placed on a small fine crust. It was such a delightful moment in my mouth, I wish I had ten of this plate.

MAIN COURSE AT LE GEORGE PARIS

After learning how to make fresh pasta with Chef Simone Zanoni, we got the opportunity to eat fresh pasta. They agnolotti — a filled pasta from the ravioli family — was filled with oxtail, topped with a red wine and sage sauce. While it was not my absolute favourite of the whole meal, I gotta say I was very impressed by the texture of the fresh pasta.

The last meal of our main course consisted of a roasted sole with a vinegar and basilic sauce. Honestly, never I tasted a fish this good. Everything about this fish was on point — the cooking, the sauce and the vegetables.

DESSERTS AT LE GEORGE PARIS

I swear if you like desserts, you’re gonna have a hard time choosing which one you’re gonna get. My suggestion: treat yourself — take them all. I tasted the mini cheesecake crème brûlée and mandarin sorbet, two other desserts which I can’t remember the name of — one with caramel and the other one was fruit based.
