Ledoyen is one of the oldest restaurants in the Champs-Élysees vicinity. The grand decor exudes an old-world charm, while the ambience makes you feel like you've been transported back in time. The cuisine is essentially French, but Chef Christian Le Squer does make an effort to reinvent it with his subtle contemporary nuances. Although, the interiors do look a little worn out, it's the food that makes up for it. With delights like Les Coquillages, The Turbot with Truffled Mashed Potatoes and a variety of other classic fish and meat dishes, the patrons are only ever increasing. So if decadent beauty is your fetish and you're willing enough to pay for it...then Ledoyen it is!
Ledoyen is in a classic, pretty setting on the Champs Elysses with lots of greenery around it. The decor inside is very traditional and a bit old-fashioned, but that's what you expect from a place like this.
I thought the food was good, but as it was very classic it was a bit too heavy for me, especially in their use of salt.
There were quite a number of tables filled by the business crowd for the expense account lunch. Service was pretty good, befitting a 3-star restaurant.
