Opened in 2016, in the historic center of Paris, the restaurant of Saint-Germain-des-Prés came to London in 2021, marking the first international address of Chef Cyril Lignac. In 2024, Bar des Prés will move to the Right Bank, in the heart of the very chic 8th arrondissement of Paris.

The two Parisian addresses invite you to travel cuisine, a marriage of French know-how and Japanese exoticism, in a cosmopolitan, lively atmosphere.


At Bar des Prés, the menu is short, lively, precise.

The dishes are shared according to desires and appetites, giving pride of place to raw fish and exceptional products: Otoro, eel, bluefin tuna, Obsilbue shrimp, wagyu…
Seasoning plays a major role and elevates simplicity to the rank of modernity: semi-cooked salmon with miso karashi sauce, semi-cooked
yellowtail ponzu wasabi grilled sesame…
The sashimi, sushi and makis are made fresh and garnished with fresh wasabi & marinated ginger, topped directly with homemade Nikiri sauce.

Dessert, halfway between classic Japanese delicacies and French pastry know-how, inevitably invites itself: Japanese pearls with coconut milk, Baba au rhum, Chiffon cake…


Cyril Lignac offers a cocktail menu combining revisited classics and original creations inspired from around the world, particularly Asia: Tokyo Garden (Tanqueray gin, shizo, sake, yuzu, lychee), Cosmocat (Zubrowka vodka, aloe vera, yuzu, Apple Sour, homemade vanilla syrup), Paloma Popy (Del Maguey Vida mezcal, agave, thyme syrup, grapefruit, Aperol, lemon, black sea salt)…

It is complemented by two exceptional sakes, one traditional, the other more contemporary.

From the Cellar

To design the decor, Cyril Lignac called on the talent of Studio KO.

The decoration plays with codes, a delicate balance between raw and more elaborate materials.

The midnight blue storefront conceals a cozy space with subdued lighting and discreet elegance. Once through the door, the long marble counter, a strong element of the identity of the place, invites you to experience it. On one side the bar, on the other the sushi masters. Not far away, the boxes with generous benches embroidered with peacock feathers invite conviviality.

Bar Des Prés

La Pâtisserie

Cyril Lignac unveils his talents as a restaurateur-entrepreneur by opening new restaurants, each with a unique identity. From classic bistro-style restaurants in keeping with tradition but always very much in tune with the times, to more distinctive, almost couture-style establishments with a local and international flair.

At the same time, he created La Pâtisserie & La Chocolaterie Cyril Lignac with Pastry Chef Benoit Couvrand, offering seasonal entremets, increasingly modern classics, exceptional bread, take-away chocolates, and lovingly addictive sweet bears…

Cyril Lignac has as much fun inventing as he does reinventing, showcasing a classic Parisian repertoire, conscientiously visiting new territories and adding sparkle to those festive evenings that stretch longer into the night.

His is a gourmet style with an assured technique, assuming both the French culinary heritage and a curiosity for the wealth of foreign cuisines.
