If you can, make sure you stop by Le Bistrot d'Henri for dinner in an authentic tiny French bistro. Although it's a squeeze getting in, it is so very worth it if you can manage. Guaranteed to have a great meal and enjoyable experience.

I only went here once, so maybe I just ordered the wrong thing, but the crab bisque was just meh (rich but not especially crab-tasting, and way way way too many little croutons) and the main dish (I forget what it was called, but something like "iles flottantes de poisson" -- floating islands, or a kind of fish mousse) was...

The only thing missing was paper tablecloths so the waiter could write the bill. This utterly charming, classic Bistrot has few tables and they are close together. The only language I heard inside, other than me, was French. Service was very friendly and efficient. I had sliced avocado with a generous helping of crab meat as a starter, and boeuf... More

Plus, they're lovely people! Most nights--they're open 7 days-- you can snag a table if you show up early BUT you will get better service and a better table if you book ahead. The chicken is to die for. The wine is good and inexpensive. It's tiny but the proprietor is very gracious and makes you feel welcome. (Well, I... More

ok so my grandma was Russian and not French and did not make the world's best boeuf bourguignon...but if she was a great French cook , this warm and friendly bistrot's version Of this classic French comfort food dish would rival grandma's, This is the gold standard. The house red complements this dish perfectly. Top it off with their home... More

Just dress casually.....as if you were going to a pub somewhere.....understand that you will be close to others eating their meals.....and, then enjoy some of the best, freshest (non-industrial) product that you will find in Paris...and for an excellent price. The father and son that run the show have a really good handle on the operation, the focus is on... More

We had the most amazing lunch here. The menu is only in French. The waiter/ owner was very helpful and explained everything. We ordered a carafe of the house red which was nice and drinkable. We started with the foie gras salad, smoked sausage, fish quenelles and duck with orange sauce. The salad was well dressed and came with blanched... More

I can assure you that in 2013-2014 i have eaten here almost ten times and it is consistently good. The poulet fermier is delicious and the gratin dauphinois is probably the best i've had,... More

Had our second wonderful dinner of this trip at Le Bistro d'Henri last night. I can attest to the superbness of three dishes - two of which I had and two of which my husband had (we repeated each other on one of these dishes): the amazing beef bourgignon, the blanquette de veau, and the filet de bar (sea bass)...
