La Maison du Luxembourg

The ambiance is too business oriented, the lighting a bit too bright. And the service, while friendly, actually too quick (never thought I'd say that about a European restaurant).

Nothing ground-breaking, but the food is excellent, executed earnestly and with professionalism in the kitchen. At 45 euro for the fixed menu, this is actually a surprisingly solid value for the area near the European Parliament.

This is a roulade of sole and langoustine with charred leek and broccoli puree. The quality of the ingredients throughout the meal was superb.
