We went to Paris for a few days, staying in the 7th arrondissement, the area around the Eiffel Tour, an area we have stayed in many times. We intended to eat in another restaurant but couldn't find it and decided to try this place, it was a stroke of luck. The staff are great, the food is fantastic, and it... More

Having NOT known that this was on Rick Steve's list ..... we discovered and reserved at this tiny bistro all on our own. I was almost sorry to see it on his list, as I fear the tourist run on it. But we couldn't have enjoyed it more. We love little bistros with blackboard menus, little English, and tables filled... More

First night in Paris in the rue clare. Great intro to old world France.... ,classic french, fine food, service, ambiance. Quiet soft spoken people unlike noisey touristy places. Just a perfect evening and intro to Paris. Enjoyed the Menu.... fois grais, guinea foul, and Normandy camerbert. OUTSTANDING!

Great local restaurant, exactly how a french restaurant should be. Looks like it could be in a time capsule from any time period from 1940s onwards. Lovely courteous man runs front of house . Whoever is in the kitchen does a pretty good job. Traditional french cooking - when I went lots of game on the menu. At €34 for... More

The food was really excellent and the place is very nice. The owner/waiter/greeter/busboy was very nice and spoke English and did not make us feel like strangers. My wife had the sea bass and I had the duck and would recommend both. Two issues for this place-because it is essentially a one man non kitchen operation service can be very... More

We ate here on two different nights. After eating here the first time we made reservations for later in the week. We sat at the table in the corner by the kitchen door which concerned me on the first night fearing it might be loud or banged into but this was not the case. We actually felt less crowded there...

Rognons de veau (veal kidneys), sauce madeira for me, and filet de bar (sea bass) with morels for Mary. Beautifully prepared food at La Billebaude. A real find with excellent food at a reasonable price close to the Eiffel Tower. And the chef has a sense of humor. A young chef with great skills in the kitchen.
