Jean de La Fontaine collected fables from a wide variety of sources, both Western and Eastern, and adapted them into French free verse. They were issued under the general title of Fables in several volumes from 1668 to 1694 and are considered classics of French literature. Humorous, nuanced and ironical, they were originally aimed at adults but then entered the educational system and were required learning for school children.

Jean de La Fontaine was a French poet and fabulist, who lived and worked during the XVII century. For special contributions to French literature he was elected to the French Academy of Sciences in 1684. Published in 1668, the collection of fables brought La Fontaine international fame. The works of the ancient Greeks, Indian storytellers, other fabulists and folk tales about animals serve as a source of inspiration for the author.

We ate at Les Fables de la Fontaine on Saturday evening as a treat whilst in Paris for the weekend. We loved our meal and service was excellent. A buzzing and busy Saturday service and everything came at just the right pace - being too quick can be as bad as very slow. We chose the smoked eel and mullet tartare to start - both delicious, the mullet was a perfect spring dish, refreshing, with tastes of Lebanon - I'd love that recipe! And before that we had a tasty little amuse bouche, chilled pea soup which tasted like a mountain of peas concentrated into a few sips of deliciousness . Service was helpful, informative, friendly and prompt throughout. Thank you to the Fables team for making our Paris weekend a bit more special. We'll definitely be back for degustation.
