Serious, sophisticated cuisine and friendly and knowledgeable staff. Don't be afraid to discuss good wine matches ... they really know and you will enjoy the discussion! Charming and unpretentious.

You may not expect to get a gourmet eight course meal from highly creative and talented chefs when you walk in and quickly glance around, but prepare to be impressed. Each course on the prix fixe "chef's surprise" menu was excellent. This is a place where Parisians go, not necessarily tourists, so the menu is in French only, but the... More

Fantastic bistro atmosphere... More than a superb wine-list!!! An evening in Le Bistral is asking for lots off fun, good food, a table full with empty bottles wine and a cab back to the hotel.. ;-)

We've become regulars at this restaurant and out of the 7 times we've been here it wowed us every time but once. The restaurant is small, casual, and cozy, with just a couple tables outside. We love to get the Menu Gastronomique, for 58 euros you get essentially 3 appetizers, 2 main plats, and 2 desserts. The food is traditional... More

Top notch service, amazing food. The first couple of times I passed by I was put off by the average 3.5 mark given by Tripadvisor reviewers, but I read the menu again, looked at their choice of wines again and though I really should eat there. The service is very attentive and competent, but also warm and friendly. The food... More

absolutely lovely! great food and the best wines of France. This place is a benchmark of XXI century restaurants and bistrots. Great research of ingredients and art of simplicity in cooking. Convivial atmosphere a hidden treasure in a very "parisien" arrondissement. suggested to everybody believes that the future is in the past

I went for lunch with my 16 year old niece after a brisk walk up and down the local streets. What a pleasant surprise to find such an unassuming respite from the crowds. The service was lovely and the food amazing. The chef's attention to details was awesome. For 29 Euros we had a fabulous 3 course French treat. Every... More

Very good mixes of different styles of cuisine and food, excellent wine advices, one of my favourite place in Paris. Only issue is that it's not really in the center even if the surroundings can be interesting if you want to discover Paris more in details...
