The Laurent establishment

The Laurent is an iconic establishment in Paris.

Initially Louix XIV's hunting lodge, then a guinguette (a traditional French drinking establishment) during the Revolution, the building was restored in 1842 by the German architect Jacques-Ignace Hittorff who was then commissioned by King Louis Phillipe to develop the Champs-Elysees.

Several metres away from the most famous of avenues, Restaurant Laurent is one of the best hidden restaurants in the world. Outside, the murmur of the fountain in the gardens and the foliage protects clients from the busy hubbub of Paris. The outdoor terrace is a real haven of peace where time stands still, perfect for a business lunch, a romantic dinner or a family meal.

You will feel welcome, and almost like you're at home at 41, Avenue Gabriel. This Michelin-starred restaurant is a magical place where the art of living and unostentatious luxury are the orders of the day. Restaurant Laurent also features five rooms which are available for hosting professional and private events in an intimate setting.

Laurent, a prestigious history

The Restaurant

With its bay windows looking out over the trees in the garden, the restaurant's dining room is bathed in natural light.

Its decor and its chic, relaxed ambiance are conducive to intimate conversations and other confidential exchanges. Not to mention the capitals, pilasters and columns which imbue the place with so much soul and an abundance of elegance.

The garden

On fine days, tables are set out in the garden.

Next to the fountain designed by Hittorff, this enchanting setting is both sheltered from passers-by and the perfect place to meet up.

A stone's throw from the Champs Elysees, the terrace is the go-to summer rendezvous point for all our guests.

The cellar

Wine, one of life's best pleasures, should be shared alongside fine dining created with talent
