Description: On the banks of the Seine, moments from Paris' Ile de la Cite and within easy reach of Paris' most celebrated landmarks is Le Tournebièvre restaurant . The first thing that will undoubtedly strike you about the restaurant (formerly Le Rencard Gourmand) is the breathtaking view across the river. But quite apart from the fairytale setting, Le Tournebièvre is special in its own right. Its classic French bistro cuisine is hugely popular with locals so it provides a real Parisian experience, quite apart from the usual tourist-version of Parisian dining. The simple bistro interior is accompanied, in the summer months, with pavement dining under a wide, shady awning. The traditional French menu is created using fine, seasonal ingredients, with a wide choice for all tastes. And, sacre bleu, the service at Le Tournebièvre is both professional and genuinely friendly.

Small place but nice location, by the Seine river . On top of that, the food was wonderful and the waiters are very friendly, cosmopolitan and prepared to suggest food and pairing wine

This is a difficult review to write. We ate there on a Saturday night and the food was great. The restaurant is in a fantastic location right by the Seine; right by Notre Dame. Such a fantastic location will have a cost, one way or another. I'm a Brit. I live in the UK. Many readers of these reviews are... More

I enjoy that place for the very good quality of the food and wine and the cosy ambiance with the view on Notre Dame. People are really nice, but you should avoir coming to early because it is then full of tourists. Nice frenchy decoration.

When in Paris don't miss out eating at this restaurant. One of the best meals we had. Located along the quai Tornelle a few blocks from the Blvd.Saint Michelle over looking Notre-Dame. The staff was great, cool and laid back, english speaking, with no adgender but good service. Restaurant interior is subdued contemporary, with outdoor seating. The food was excellent,... More

We found this place from trip advisor and were delighted with everything about it: not far from a metro, nice friendly service, lovely view, most importantly great food. It wasn't cheap but we didn't find anywhere reasonable worth rating really.
