    We have traveled throughout Spain and the rest of Europe and were excited to experience Basque in France. Wonderful experience. Inventive food, interesting dishes and a wonderful dining experience. Recommend to all my critical food world traveling friends.

    One of the most authentic and creative restaurants in Paris. Without pretense and exaggeration.

    Wonderful, creative cuisine; friendly and effective service (hard to find in Paris!). High quality. Surprising Food - More then French (Bask) Cuisine.

    Imaginative and succulent plates. A bit disappointing that the Basque wine was a bit highly priced. An Iroulegy runs around 10-20 euros, depending on the producer.

    Finally a restaurant that delivers. We have been to Paris many times and somehow never had a meal that seemed worthy of Paris. Tonight was our night. Highly recommend. Staff, food atmosphere all fabulous.

    They were very kind and polite. What was cooked was not only delicious, but also delicate and beautiful. This is a really recommended restaurant.

    We love this restaurant. Come every time we're in Paris. Wish it was in New York (where we live) so we could go frequently. Couldn't be better!!

    a small and cozy restaurant with lively atmosphere. the staffs were excellent, the food was so wonderful that even my picky companion finished every dish in the course. the interval between dishes is a little long but worth waiting after all. and you can nibble on your perfect sourdough bread until your food is served. will definitely come again.

    I had a fabulous dinner here in 2018, but was disappointed this year. Main course of Turbot very ordinary. Dessert was excellent. Felt the staff was not up to the crowded restaurant.

    My husband never used the word exquisite to describe a dish but he did when he bit into his codfish. My chicken breast was unlike any other chicken I'd ever had. Each part of the meal was outstanding. We heard about the restaurant through many sources and it lived up to the hype.

    Appetizers and main courses were good. We ordered 2 starters and 2 main courses, bit too much for 2 persons cause all of them in big size. Desserts were disappointed, a single scope of ordinary ice-cream with cookies crumbles priced Euro12, not worth it.

    Tried the squid appetizer-undercooked and chewy. Pork loin was tasteless. Chicken was good but arrived lukewarm at best. Our waiter could barely function-told us he was so tired he couldn’t think straight. Overall very disappointing for a Michelin rated restaurant.

About the restaurant

Dès l’enseigne, on sait où l’on est. Le pottoka est un poney du Pays Basque, la terre du chef Sébastien Gravé. Mais en entrant, on est aussi à Paris, grâce au carrelage métro et au comptoir argenté qui brille. Dans une ambiance bleu turquoise, on retourne dans le Sud-Ouest avec les grappes de piment d’Espelette, les clins d’œil au rugby et à la pelote basque. Au final, un lieu convivial, en équilibre entre pays natal et ville d’adoption.

Sébastien Gravé a tout compris. Il partage sa vie entre Paris et Bayonne, où il a aussi ouvert la Table de Sébastien Gravé. Il magnifie les produits de son terroir de naissance, solide sur ses bases acquises. Il a fait ses classes au Laurent avec Philippe Braun, mais aussi chez Joël Robuchon, Jean-Marie Gautier à Biarritz et Christian Constant à Paris. Sous ses dehors bohêmes, il est d’ailleurs assez casanier puisqu’il n’a pas quitté le 7e arrondissement cher au chef Constant pour ouvrir d’abord les Fables de la Fontaine, qu’il quitte auréolé d’une étoile en 2012, avant de s’installer quelques mètres plus loin pour créer Pottoka. Il y cultive l’art de l’apéro et, dès que l’on passe à table, celui d’une cuisine faites d’accords audacieux : ravioles de chèvre, xistora (charcuterie espagnole), crème au sarrasin, velouté coco-artichaut, joues et pieds de cochon, frites, risotto de maïs grand roux basque au chorizo et lard de Colonnata, ou cet incroyable dessert chocolat crémeux, mousseux et croquant, glace cacahuète au sel fumé et piment d’Espelette, présenté en 2016 à Taste Of Paris.

En 2015, Sébastien Gravé a ouvert une table d’hôte baptisée La Peña, juste à côté de Pottoka (les lieux communiquent). Bon plan pour une soirée entre amis.
