Hotel Monte Cristo Paris

At Le Grand Dictionnaire this summer

Categories : IN - at the hotel, published on : 7/1/23

An homage to Alexandre Dumas, immortal writer, extensive traveller, great gastronome and noted adventurer, the Hotel Monte Cristo and its restaurant, Le Grand Dictionnaire, are intended as timeless places. They immerse you in an exquisitely designed and exotic decor, reminiscent of the Orient Express. And when they switch to summer mode, it's a real treat for the eyes and the taste buds alike.


On the terrace

Set back from the Boulevard de Port-Royal, in the quiet little Rue Pascal, Le Grand Dictionnaire invites you to make yourself comfortable on its verdant terrace. Once seated, you can fully enjoy the summer sweetness of the day or evening. Large parasols will shelter you during the sunniest hours so that you can devote yourself entirely to conversation… and, of course, to the contents of your plate!


A new menu

True to his principles, the chef of the Grand Dictionnaire offers his diners gourmet dishes that are versions of traditional recipes enhanced with influences from far away. Subtle and generous, they invite you to engage in world travel through the magic of taste alone. As a starter, smoked bonito goes beautifully with pear, fennel and yuzu, while the grated celery is accompanied by Greek yoghurt and curry. Moving on to the next course, you will surely be tempted by the chef’s surprising signature dish of duck breast with Cajun spices and blood orange caramel or the Basque pork in a sumac crust, with tamarind sauce and lime. To conclude in fine style, you have the difficult choice between the strawberries poached in rum, the homemade chocolate sorbet, or the Bar 1802 signature rum baba…


Make the most of a delightful setting by relaxing, all summer long, on our restaurant’s terrace. And while you’re at it, why not take advantage of your stay at the Hotel Monte Cristo by registering for one of the Bar 1802 Master classes devoted to rum?
