Before coming to France, we were told to expect small portions and rude people. We experienced neither while we were in Paris for 10 days. This Bistro serves huge portions. I ordered the Steak Frites and it was cooked perfectly. The cheese platter for dessert was amazing as was the souffle. The staff was very helpful and friendly. There were... More

This restaurant is lively without invading the senses. The staff is extraordinarily efficient and yet takes time for you when needed. The mainstay of our meal was 'lièvre royal' (hare) - beautifully done, both as for taste and for presentation. We splurged by adding a cheese course, which we rarely do, but the plank looked very attractive and the cheeses... More

Bistrot Paul Bert has gotten a reputation as the classic French bistro, which in many ways it is. However, its own great reputation has eroded its authenticity a bit. It is totally overrun with American tourists and there is nary a French person there. As an invading American myself, I guess I shouldn't fault them for that! This is a... More

This restaurant we found online with a reasonable review so we decided to check it out. In a nut shell staff were very poor and quite rude. This is my third trip to Paris and this bistro stands out as the worst dining experience so far. We went for lunch and the restaurant was less than half full. The staff... More

Typical French Bistro food although with the added influence of something special. The Hare dish was sensational as was the veal as the entree. The sommelier recommended a light red from the Jura which was the perfect choice with the meal we chose. Efficient and fun service made the evening, we will be back!

Paul Bert has been serving very authentic bistro food at moderate prices for ages, and in a part of town removed from the typical tourist zones in the beaux quartiers. The real deal.

we for a long walk to find this place. I was a little disappointed but maybe expecting to relax too much. It was very busy with tables close. Value to be had here, tasty food but lacked ambience I thought but maybe expecting too much

This place has legendary status so it was with some trepidation that the husband and I fronted up. It felt like stepping back in time to a bistro where locals all know each other and the place is untouched by designer fit-outs. It could have been 1965 and it was fabulous. It's claimed Bert's steak-frites are the best in the... More

I had the Coquille appetizer that was 4 plump scallops cooked in the shells with a very tasty sauce. Main course was steak au poivre that was cooked just right and delicious. Don't confuse this bistro with another down the street "6 Paul Bert".

Surprisingly not full for a Sat lunch. A little expensive for lunch as there's only the EUR38 set. Ingredients and food were well prepared but not wow for the accolades and price. The food is good no doubt, but just not awe-inspiring. The canele was very good though, only comes with the coffee.
