Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris
31 Avenue George V, 75008 Paris, France
The Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris is without a doubt one of the best luxurious hotels in Paris. Located just a few steps from the Champs-Elysées, in the golden triangle, this glorious palace is a place where all your senses will be pampered to their fullest. This elegant, classic, but modern hotel offers a lot even for the most demanding guests – impeccable service, stunning décor, impressive rooms, relaxing spa and a true pampering for even the most refined taste buds. 5 Michelin stars under one roof in 3 restaurants, Le Cinq***, Le George* and L’Orangerie* promise an exquisite culinary experience. While dinner in one of them and a stay at the Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris is still on my wishlist, we had the chance to enjoy Afternoon Tea at their La Galerie lounge. And let me tell you, this was an experience to remember…

Afternoon Tea time: from 3pm to 6pm
When you step into the Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris, the first thing you notice are the remarkable flower displays, which lead you to the La Galerie lounge, decorated with 19th century paintings, amazing Flemish tapestries and carefully selected furniture. While a pianist plays in the background, you are welcomed by highly professional staff. We decided to both go for High Tea “À La Française” (60eur per person), starting with a glass of Champagne, assortment of fine savories, followed by the selection of pastries, cannelés from Bordeaux, madeleine, financier and scones served with clotted cream and strawberry jam. For our beverage of choice, we decided to try one from the rich selections of their teas and their traditional hot chocolate (24eur), served with milk, natural whipped cream, chocolate beads and marshmallows. True chocolate heaven! Together with the hot chocolate I was served Abatilles mineral water to enhance the chocolate flavour.
Chef David Bizet and Maxime Frédéric signed under these gourmet creations, which offers a perfect, balanced mixture of strong and subtle, traditional and experimental, powerful and simple flavours. Afternoon tea worth the splurge!
