Restaurant Aux 2 oliviers, 5 years later


Last week, I was looking for a new restaurant to test in Paris between Les Halles and St Michel. In my research, I came across this restaurant that I tested in 2009. After nearly 5 years, it no longer counts is not it?

Aux 2 oliviers – French food

Taste of the meal What made me come back to this place several years later, it’s the memory of this delicious crème brûlée with foie gras. So I did not help myself but order the same thing: the crème brûlée of foie gras, apple chutney and toasted spice bread. Unfortunately, I’ll admit I was slightly disappointed. The cream was good but really nothing more. So is what I sublimate my memory and it distorted my experience, or is it that my palate has matured over the years and I have become more demanding?


Anyway I was also disappointed for the main course: duck breast with honey, mashed potatoes and pear wine. The duck was good but honey sauce seemed to me a little bitter, a little as if it had been burned. And mashed potatoes was so-so. At the table, there was a wok caramelized pork with honey, and a cod and mashed sweet potato sauce.



For cons, the dessert was really good. I ordered a strawberry tiramisu revisited and it was perfect: not too sweet, the cream was very good and the balance between the biscuit and cream was perfect.


Setting Wooden tables and chairs with cushions and covers, towels fabrics: the decor is fairly standard but enjoyable.

Service  Nothing special to notice.

Price It costs between 8 and 10€ for a starter, between 16 and 25€ for a main course and between 8 and 12€ for a dessert. Having booked via LaFourchette, we had -50% dsicount. My bill amounted to 25€ for a starter, main course, dessert and a drink which is quite interesting. Without offer, I’d find the restaurant a bit expensive.

Recommendation’s rate : 3/5

Aux 2 oliviers 22, rue Vaugirard Paris 6ème
