This was a lovely dining experience - everyone eating the same thing at the same time, really delicious and fresh sushi, detailed explanations by wonderful staff. We tried the sake pairing menu as well and it was truly excellent and will change the way you think about sake.

We had a great experience sitting at the counter, watching Chef and his team prepare our meal. Counter seats are comfortable and there is just enough room between the diners. Chef is very friendly, puts you at ease, and explains the various dishes. The presentation and plating are beautiful. Our favourite dish was the seared beef, urchin and fois gras wrapped up in a shiso leaf - perfection! What we did not understand were the two younger couples who spent all of their time on their phones, looking at various apps. What a waste of an evening - and very rude to Chef.

About the restaurant
Beyond the yellow door, guests enter a space where the past and future mingle. Hallmarks of classic bistro style – a long marble bar, white linens and crystal stemware are mixed with contemporary art, bold colour and an eclectic soundtrack of funk, Motown and disco.

We look forward to welcoming you to La Banane.

Food was superb. Unfortunately my lobster pasta dish was served pretty close to room temperature and they hadn’t warmed the bowl it was served in. The wines are expensive but I ordered one of the least expensive from the south of France and it was good. We would return😊
