A gourmet restaurant ** Michelin® in Rouen

A two-starred property
That cultivates the art of genuine cuisine...

A must for the lovers of authentic taste and reinterpreted tradition. Classical and modern.

Normandy is rich in products, green scenery and – sometimes tormented - history. Rouen is one of its flagships. In this city, in the heart of his native region, Gilles Tournadre has designed the eponymous restaurant. Gill, a two-starred property that cultivates the art of genuine cuisine


L'equipe au Japon
Japan and Gilles Tournadre,...
Fallen in the melting pot of Japanese food flavors in 1989, Gilles Tournadre is since an ardent supporter of the culinary exchanges with this country. You who are sometimes amazed at the intrusion of Japan in Gilles Tournadre’s cuisine, know that it comes from a strong cultural attachment with the land of the rising sun.

Two stars for culinary happiness

Gill has had 2 stars in the Michelin® Guide since 1990. A consistency which is proof of a permanent quest for excellence, the willingness to serve , a cuisine which does not lie, in the image of its Chef.

From the very famous "Pigeon à la Rouennaise" to the just as renowned "Millefeuille with Bourbon Vanilla", - or chocolate, coffee and pistachio - including the "pan-fried John Dory Fillet in a bouillon scented with kaffir lime and lemongrass"... The cuisine of Gilles Tournadre stages the classics of Norman gastronomy, whilst opening up to the world and the new tastes. A perfect balance!

At Gill, nothing ostentatious. The Chef and his team cultivate discretion and refinement. The elegance of the place with a play of colours between taupe grey, cherry red and light oak. Simplicity of the nice furniture with straight lines. Decoration of paintings and photos chosen by the maîtres de maison... Intimate tranquillity for a moment of true happiness.
