I have been to Harvest Room- Fairmont twice. And both times my experience was amazing. But the resent experience was even special because it was for my husband’s birthday. Our server was so kind to bring out some cake with candles. I don’t remember his name but he was older Asian gentleman. The food was amazing as well. The whole experience is so luxurious. Definitely going back there in summer again.

About the restaurant
Ladurée is a world-renowned French luxury patisserie, founded in Paris in 1862. The acclaimed house rose into fame with their exquisite selection of viennoiseries and pastries – most notably, however, for their creation of the macaron.

Described as a biscuit with a delicate and crisp shell with a smooth ganache or jam filling, they come in a variety of classical and creative flavours. Ladurée’s macarons are often not mixed with more than two or three flavours to give each macaron a more pronounced taste.

Accompanying the Boutique, their traditional Parisian tea room offers irresistible culinary delights in a setting inspired by historic France, allowing Ladurée to extend their unique experience of the French art of living.
