Eating Out: Marble Courtyard George V Paris
Work bias aside, Four Seasons George V Paris really sets the bar high – stunning grandoise space with the old school Parisian wonder, impeccable floral arrangements – they’ve even got an Artistic Director in-house, Jeff Leatham whose reputation precedes him – the genius behind the flowers.
The food – simple and luxurious, noble products in generous portions cooked perfectly without the fancy dress, adhering to the French gastro philosophy of letting the great products of the earth and sea shine with their natural flavours instead of blanketing it in sauces.
I had a huge salad and then a bouillabaisse that came with turbot, sea bass packed with the deliciously rich flavours of happy sea creatures distilled in a bowl. Chef went with a baby lamb and one of the few times he wasn’t issuing any ‘carton rouge‘ on the whole dining experience as he continues to rave about the level of service – Grace à Monsieur Isadore Sharp’s golden pillars.
It was our last weekend in Paris and the fabulous lunch in marbled courtyard on a beautiful summer day topped off the end of our summer holidays.

Beautiful purple orchids hanging from the ceiling – not quite visible, but super serene and pleasant.
The pool and spa jacuzzi.
If you have deep pockets and are into classic, grandoise luxury hotels, George V is for you. In any case, it’s probably a once in a lifetime treat to stay here for anyone!
