Expert review of Auguste

Well-behaved modern cuisine in a chic Left Bank setting with fish from Mister Goodfish.

It's Auguste as in Escoffier but that doesn't mean the cooking is stuffy, in fact, anything but. Gael Orieux, ex number two at Le Meurice under Yannick Alléno, as well as stints with Bocuse and Taillevent, is revelling in creation, with a perfectionist contemporary style to go with the sleek minimalist modern dining room.

Food and drink: 

This is light, inventive stuff, meticulously presented if occasionally a little over complicated. Orieux is particularly good with fish and shellfish – an extraordinary oyster jelly that captures the sea – and does some interesting land-sea mixes, and as a keen diver he's also into conservation, with his fish from sustainable sources certified by Mister Goodfish.

Ambience: 

The first impression is rather straightlaced, with smartly dressed couples and tables of civil servants and embassy bods talking shop.

Service: 

It's smart and professional.

Location: 

Ministry territory and old money up the street from the Assemblée Nationale.

Price advice: 

The lunch menu is 35 euros, for dinner count around 80 euros.
