Welcoming Restaurant with Great Food!

Off a little side street in the Seventh, La Billebaud offers seasonal fare seasoned to perfection. Pascale, the primary waiter, speaks excellent English as well as French and I believe German. My favorite dish every visit is the sea bass, gently cooked with a to-die for sauce. I have to work... read more

An adventure in perfect French dining and service. Thoughtful dishes, expertly and creatively made. Beautiful presentations, welcoming and delightful. Wine list is extensive and prices very reasonable. We were completely charmed and will return every time we visit Paris. It took us three trips to Paris to discover it: take our word and choose to make a reservation there. Near... More

Just an exceptional dinner, and surprisingly affordable. One of my top five meals ever, and I've had some terrific ones.

La Billebaude is the only restaurant we visited twice. It's tiny, has a giant painting of a wild boar on the back wall, and the owner serves everyone - he is very kind about blending French and English (I can manage most of the time, but there are names of fish that I'm not familiar with). Our first time there... More

delicious, creative rustic cuisine. Tiny, cozy, friendly and well-priced. We loved it so much that we went back a second time. Definitely have dessert!

our meal was very good. Very small spot and owner makes it a point to visit with all customers while you are there. My only complaint was his wine choices . After two tries we opted for water. Would recommend

Bases on reviews of tripadvisor i thought this would be a great place to have dinner. Starter was very nice (i had croussillants with gamba's). This was delicious. For main course i had the duck. This was tasteful, but not tremendous. For dessert i had souffle icecream with grand marnier. This was not good, nothing more than just an enormous... More
