It would be a mistake to walk past the tiny window of L’Ébauche without stopping for a closer look.

Behind the pleasant, unassuming interior lies an outstanding little gem. Melik Debadji, former disciple of renowned chef Mathieu Viannay, toils away in the open kitchen. He has also worked under the watchful eyes of Pierre Gagnaire and Guy Savoy.

Suffice to say that his three starters, main courses and desserts, which are updated on a daily basis, are of a high standard. The exquisite dishes, with bold, well-balanced flavours, such as his highly addictive cream of sweetcorn, piquillo and chorizo, are served with a smile. The wine menu also focusses on natural products.

What's more it's open on Sunday nights!
Lunchtime menu for €16.
