We should have sat inside. The people inside seemed to be being served and getting food. My colleague had some romantic illusion of Parisian cafe society. Bad move. Service was glacial. It might have been that we are Brits, but they gave us a UK menu, so they obviously don't hate us. We also sat between two loved couples who... More

I lived next door for months before I finally met a guy nice enough to treat me to the restaurant I'd walked passed every day for months, envying those people eating that mouthwatering food. The atmosphere was perfect, the staff incredibly professional and welcoming and wow... The food. Yes, it's expensive but boy can they do a steak tartare. We... More

The menu Touristique offering a multiple choice 3-Course Meal, which includes a Champagne Cocktail (Kir Royale) and a half bottle of good quality wine per person is a good option to consider. The portions are not large, but the quality of food and presentation makes it worthwhile. Friendly, attentive service

We've been going to the restaurant for 14 years. The price, for the same menu (bubbly+3 courses+half a bottle of wine and coffee), has risen from 28 to 44 euros, the quality and quantity of the food has declined, and some dishes have disappeared like the oysters or the profiteroles. But you now have waterfalls on the walls ... Nevertheless,... More

We have been going there for a few year but last Tuesday it was pretty awful. It is used to be really good but they seem to have cut back on the quality of the food. The service while very friendly was largely absent and we kept having to go find them. There are far better places to spend eur... More

Visited this restaurant last night with my wife. The worst dining experience ever from start to finish. To be avoided.

We use happened to walk past this restaurant and it looked so nice on the pavement that we decided to have dinner. The menu is reasonably good value at 44 euros p. p. for 3 courses plus a bottle of wine . After sitting down it took over 20 minutes to be offered a drink and see a menu. The... More

With restaurant prices in Paris getting very expensive its good to come across a menu that has a fixed price and includes aperitif, wine and coffee. The food is all very reasonable, perhaps not the best in France but very good value. We certainly had no complaints about the food or service and had a very enjoyable evening. Would certainly...

Apparently this is a typical French bistro but the experience was a little disappointing. There were 5 of us and we wanted to sit away from the other diners which was refused as they were short of staff. This shortage impacted on the evening as, although the staff were pleasant and helpful, there were long delays with the food, with... More

We've been to this restaurant many times over the past 14 years, returning this time (after a couple of years) to find revamped decor, but in essence still the Bistro 17eme we remember with the Prix Compris menu including very drinkable wines. Excellent service from the waiters, and most enjoyable food. The foie gras was as usual excellent, and the... More
