Frankly we chose this restaurant because it was close to our hotel but it always seemed busy and had a great atmosphere. After two failures we finally got a booking here for our last night in Paris ..and it was worth the wait. The quality of the food as excellent, well cooked and delightfully presented and not too much. An... More

Every course we had was perfect. The best fish, the best roasted lamb, the best desserts (the pear). Additionally, the service was amazing (even in English) and the atmosphere was great. Very recommended.

We found this restaurant online during our search for an authentic Parisian place for our last night in Paris. The restaurant features local or organic ingredients, and prides itself on using locally-sourced products when possible. The restaurant was a short walk from our hotel (near Gare de Lyon), and we had a terrific meal. We had the foie gras and... More

We were given an excellent table with our reservation, very comfy banquet seating that was private and with a lovely view of the amazing street scene mural. The chorizo starter was excellent, light and buttery, almost melt in the mouth. My main course was one of the top priced dishes, and I had high expectations, but it didn't quite hit... More

This place was recommended to us by a concierge service and we'd read various reviews, so made a booking and went along with an open mind. It was busy and buzzy when we arrived and the tables were very close together, so as they say not recommended for a romantic dinner. However, all our food was amazing - every single... More

Wow, what an amazing little restaurant - the food is outstanding, the staff and owner completely lovely and the overall atmosphere very relaxed yet distinctly French. It was fantastic to be somewhere local away from the tourist haunts and really get to experience the true Paris. Even when our French skills ran out, the staff and owner were on hand... More

We booked this place for our 1 year wedding anniversary based upon what we read online. I am very pleased we did. We were treated remarkably well by our waiter, who patiently answered our questions about the food and wine (the list is massive). Everything was fantastic, fresh and local. It may not be a pretentious, "fine dining" establishment, but... More

Staying in Bercy / Nation

Neighborhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make their homes.
