C'mon now, like seriously, how ridiculous can you get? Well apparently in Paris you are able to get stupidly ridiculous, just because you are renowned to have the best food in the world. To give you an example, the cheapest starter you can order is 85 euros. No, that's not a typo. Our dinner of 2 starters, 2 mains, 1 dessert and 4 drinks was a total of 650 euros, and we didn't even go for the expensive stuff on the menu.

L'Ambroisie is a three michelin star restaurant in Paris district 4 that is famous amongst food enthusiasts but not publicly or commercially famous outside of it's circle. With very little media and spotlight, the restaurant has a very discreet and professional service, a little too stiff for my liking if I am being honest. Saad, the man of few words described the restaurant as we sat down as 'Anymore French, you die'. Thanks darlin, for your insightful analysis...Anyway, unlike a lot of high end restaurants in Paris which have old school decor, L'Ambroisie has a contemporary-classic decor that would make you feel like you are dining in modern day Versailles. With only 13 tables, it can get a little quiet in there so I constantly felt the need to whisper every time I wanted to say anything.
