In 2002, the iconic Michelin Guide awarded Le Cinq by Christian Le Squer three stars, marking the chef’s already illustrious career with the ultimate honour for culinary excellence – a distinction that has been reconfirmed ever since. In celebration of this great achievement, Le Cinq unveils Le Squer’s 20 Years of Excellence Menu, featuring the elegant, modern French cuisine for which he is known in a gastronomic experience like no other.

    From Seaside to City

    As far back as he can remember, Christian Le Squer was surrounded by the scent of the sea during his childhood in Brittany, and his passion for cooking dates back to his time as a sailor. After a few successful years working outside the capital, his desire to explore French cuisine grew, taking him to Paris. Here, he learned about fine dining, refined his palate and became even more knowledgeable and ambitious.

    The Art of French Living

    Le Squer aspires to l’art de vivre à la Française at our Hotel, with dishes that are elegant, delightful and generous in portion – and inspired in harmony with the times.

    A World of Creation

    Le Squer’s greatest pride is creating a dish, a moment, a sensation and memories – but above all, he wants to offer his clients an unforgettable dining experience. Both determined and serene, he defines himself as a creator of flavours and a composer of tastes. In the style of a fashion designer or perfumer, he shapes and assembles his produce, enhancing it and drawing out the most delicate flavours, achieving a perfect balance in the process.

The taste of a dish actually comes to me before I find the ingredients for it. It’s an intuitive process. It just hits you, a bit like love at first sight.
