Excellent service and wonderful food

Steak here was incredibly tasty and cooked perfectly as requested. I would have liked more choice in menu however we ordered off the English 38€ set menu (3 courses) so keep in mind the a la carte and French option when you go in. Make sure you book and leave plenty of time to savour your meal!

Arrived to find out we could not get in without a reservation..booked for days. We left and came back to ask if we could sit outside...we were then immediately seated. Menu is on the board and prix fix but make sure you ask about the specials. I went there for pepper steak..didn't see so assumed it wasn't available..but it was... More

Great disappointment, served with anger. We ordered a table two weeks in advance, after we read rave reviews. We were greeted with indifference. I was with my mother she did not feel well, so we asked to order one main course (in addition appetizers and desserts). The waitress was furious at us and said it was not the policy of... More

After a meal at Paul Bert, it feels like I have a mission to bring this bistrot to a proper place in Tripadvisor ranking. I did a lot of research for our family's Paris trip, and I decided to try Paul Bert because it was a lot of food critics favorite. We stayed in 6 arrondissement, so it was quite... More

As a foodie, this was one of the best and funnest experiences I have ever had at a restaurant. OK, first tip is book a reservation via your hotel BEFORE you arrive. I emailed my hotel and they did it for me. The restaurant has no website. So why was it fun? You never know what the menu will be,... More

I am so disappointed with myself that I didn't come back again during my stay in Paris to try other dishes. I only got to eat the scallops once, the foie gras main and crepe Suzette only once. Other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary dinner...one of the best meal in Paris.

Dinner was good- service seemed a little too fast, as though they were hurrying us out. The food was delicious, but not as creative as some other bistros we have been to. Soufflé at the end of the meal was divine, however, so we left on a happy note!

I went to Bistrot Paul Bert to celebrate my friend's birthday. We were four in all and each of us were thoroughly pleased. I shared the steak frites for 2 with my friend. I probably would have preferred it rare but we ordered medium rare at my friend's request. It was incredible!!!!! We ordered it with a bearnaise sauce which... More

THis seemingly neighbourhood bistro draws people from all over Paris, with its genuine no-nonsense French bistro cooking...lunchtime menu €18 for 3 courses, dinner double that... a fine blackboard choice, we remember enjoying our salads, some perfectly grilled sole with butter, a lovely lambstew, after which dessert of tarte tatin just a mite much!.. Already warned of its popularity, we went... More

We were a party of five all ordering everything from chicken to scallops to two different steaks . Mine was wonderful and cooked perfectly, as rare as I like it which is often difficult. One in our party ordered his well done,,,close! The desserts were unexpectedly good as well. We had wine as well and the total was 212 euros.... More

Staying in Bercy / Nation

Neighborhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make their homes.
