Reserved by phone , no internet reservations. Friendly greetings by owner, had some wonderful dishes-a Hure (terrine) of pork that was outstanding, yummy squid dish, veal stew and the best strawberries-from Solonge- that we have ever eaten. Dinner for two 3 courses with wine a out E110.

We visited this bistrot for dinner, and we choose the a la carte menu, foie gras was great and the steak was wonderful. Huge servings which is a rarity in paris. You can also opt for the fixed menu which costs around 38 euro per person. Nice and charming old decor, good wines and home made products. Only downside- waitress... More

This restaurant was a Fodor's Choice but I wasn't as impressed. The service, while reported on Trip Advisor to be brusque was actually quite good. My monkfish creeks were tender but the sauce was a basic tartar vs a something special. My husband's tuna appetizer with chorizo was supposed to be seared but was over cooked and medium. His pork...

Cute bistro in the up and coming 11th arrondissement and the food was solid but didn't blow us away. Service started off rude but our waitress really warmed up and ended up being very sweet.

A classic bistro in every way. They put the cheese tray in front of you and take it away at leisure, only when you've had enough. I'm still dreaming of Paul Bert and that cheese tray.

We had researched places to eat before we went to Paris and Paul Bert was our only faux pas. While the menu had plenty of choice, nothing we ate during our three course lunch was really great. The steak was somewhat tough, the foie gras was flavourless, and the monkfish cheeks were overcooked. The staff did kindly offer us an... More

We'd been recommended this by a friend. We booked the wrong day but they were very kind and fitted us in even though they were full to the brim by halfway through the meal. My mozzarella starter was absolutely fantastic - I'd have it again and again. And despite my pork main course having a large bit of fat round... More

Having eaten at this highly reviewed restaurant on previous visits to Paris,we were so looking forward to a return visit this summer, that we invited friends to join us as our guests. Unfortunately,my husband and I both ordered the same entree, steak. When it arrived at our table, the presentation and the aroma were fantastic, but when we tried to... More

This was the third time I went to Bistrot Paul Bert. This one was with my family. Everything was delicious, with a great bistrot atmosphere, with that feeling of real life of Paris. For dessert, the macaroon with raspberry is wonderful. If it is the season, the beaujolais Côte Du Py Morgon 2012 was a nice choice.

Food was not uniformly good. The sole meunière was outstanding. But the steak was tough. Service was quite brusque. Compared to other meals in Paris, I thought this place was overpriced. I would not return.
