For starters we had the smoked haddock creamy soup and a mullet carpachio, for main the hare and a beautifully executed roast chicken plate with an orange lacquer souffle' and rice pudding with a hazelnut cream and crunchy nut soil. We booked weeks in advance only to fine on confirmation that our booking did not exist, we persevered and were... More

This restaurant is way over hyped for the kind of food they serve. We were here for our anniversary dinner. And we left extremely disappointed. I had ordered a rabbit dish. The meat was dry and the sauce tasteless. My wife had ordered a fish dish wish was also so average for the price paid. These desert selection was really... More

Had dinner at this restaurant with three others the other night and I believe the consensus was the experience was a bit underwhelming. Based on the reviews from this site, I thought it would be Perfect end to our 4 day trip in Paris. It was just a bit flat. Wait staff might have been tired, but they didn't seem... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this bistro located in a tiny street of the 11th arrondissement. First the ambiance is typical French with a very warm decoration. Then the sommelier Sebastien is delightful, and has a selection of wines to die for. He selected two very good bottles, and had them at the right temperature. One South of France and... More

We had a wonderful meal at Le Bistrot Paul Bert the day after Christmas. Sure, the staff are quite direct and to the point and the place doesn't look like it's been redecorated in 50 years, but I kinda got it. They've tried to keep the whole place completely true to its roots; even the fact that you have no... More

Make sure you dont eat a lot before going there because portions are big (especially main & dessert). 2 people (2 set menu & tap water & garrafe of red... More

By the time we arrived at Bistrot Paul Bert we were ready for some good food, having taken a taxi from our hotel in the 8th arrondissement and sat in some pretty horrendous Paris traffic for what felt like (and was) at least 45 minutes. If the harmony of our little group was a little frayed when we prised ourselves... More

Food is excellet. A good value for the quality that is plated. English firendly. Paul Bert is very small and cramped... More
