Innovative and subtle cuisine
Located right in the heart of a very attractive part of the 8th arrondissement, right next to La Madeleine and Place de la Concorde, Tante Louise, is a typical Paris restaurant that was taken over by Bernard Loiseau in August 1998.
This restaurant has enjoyed an excellent reputation since the 1930s and offers a gastronomic cuisine in an Art Déco ambiance. Its historic décor has been immaculately preserved : stained glass windows by the renowned Master glass painter Lardeur, wrought iron décor.
The chef, Ichiei Taguma presents an innovative and creative cuisine, but always preserving taste and flavour. Desserts are created with precision and are very gourmand.
Since 2014, a sommelier has joined the team to offer the best wine pairing possible. Particularily during the monthly wine pairing dinner happening every last Wednesday of the month.
In addition to the main dining room, there are other rooms available for private functions : the table d’hôtes in the cellar (8 persons), the small dining room on the ground floor (10 persons) and the mezzanine (20 to 30 persons).

The name ‘Loiseau Rive Droite’ was chosen in homage to chef Louise Blanche Lefeuvre, who founded this restaurant in 1929. Indeed, you can still see her portrait in the stained-glass windows of the dining room.
She hailed from Franche-Comté, and made her reputation in the capital with her typically-French homely stews and became, according to the Revue Culinaire of the time, ‘The restaurant where the gourmets of Paris and the provinces discretely suggest they should meet with the intention of enjoying an excellent meal’.
In 2009, a grand soirée was organised to celebrate the 80th anniversary of this legendary restaurant and was attended by many of its guests and celebrities, delighted at the opportunity to pay tribute to it.
