The restaurant was founded by Michel Roux and his brother Albert in 1972.
Michel Roux, who founded the restaurant with his brother Albert, said, "I'm really getting so upset about people taking pictures. We put up a card at the door - 'No photos, please.'"
Part of Roux's vexation with photographing food is that he feels a photo cannot represent the quality of the flavours.
The restaurant is now run by Roux's son, Alain. Albert's son, Michel Roux Jr, is chef-patron at the family's other temple to fine dining, Le Gavroche, and is more relaxed about customers photographing the food.
A food trends report issued last year by Waitrose found that one-third of those aged 18 to 34 regularly post pictures of their meals on social media.
In 2014 a group of top chefs in France launched a campaign to ban the practice all together, claiming that it spoiled the atmosphere of eating out. (ANI)
