A Story of Passion and Excellence

The story of Les Fables de la Fontaine began in 2004 when Christian Constant, a renowned chef, purchased this small seafood restaurant. After an evening spent searching for the perfect name, they chose "Les Fables de la Fontaine" as a nod to the famous Fontaine de Mars and the charm of La Fontaine's tales.

In 2006, David Bottreau joined the venture with Christian Constant. Under his management, the restaurant earned a Michelin star, a distinction it held for 12 years. This journey was marked by a strong mentor-student relationship between David Bottreau and Christian Constant, contributing to Bottreau's burgeoning career. In 2023, David Bottreau opened Le Bistrot des Fables, a true culinary gem that continues the tradition of Parisian bistros.

An Authentic and Friendly Atmosphere

David Bottreau’s new jewel, Le Bistrot des Fables, thrives at the location once occupied by Café Lignac on Rue Saint-Dominique.
