This restaurant is just about what you would expect on your trip to Paris, good food in busy bistro. While we both thoroughly enjoyed our food, there didn't appear to be a huge selection on the day to day menu and most diners opted for the special which was fillet steak at 37 euros. Choose wines from the blackboard which... More

We went yesterday for the 38 euro menu. There were ample choices and settling for the langoustines followed by the suckling pig were both stellar choices. For dessert I had the Raspberry macaroon which was delicious and also the largest one I've ever had. A very good meal with some highlights. The bistro is frequented with locals all enjoying their...

We loved our dinner at Paul Bert. We were seated on the banquette near the front (more fresh air, which is nice in the summer in Paris), and because we saw that the portion on the steak frites was generous, we opted to share it. My husband ordered the prix fixe menu with the tomato salad (fantastic!!), the steak ("ongle... More

Selected from a Saveur list of the best French bistros and was not disappointed. One of the best steaks we have ever had and the lemon sole melted in our mouth. The pig was fantastic as well. The best meal we had in Paris.

This place was recommended by Rick Steves, Patricia Wells, Paris by Mouth, and Anthony Bourdain, among others, so we figured we had to try it. My wife objected because everyone else in the restaurant would probably be there because they read the same reviews, so it would be filled with Americans. Well, all of the above are true. Our meal...

A bistrot probably unchanged since before the war...truly authentic, a real slice of history. Buzzing in atmosphere and full of Parisiens. We had the most amazing dinner...indescribable, just absolutlely amazing typical fresh food and generous portions. I had cheese to finish and loved that they just put the whole board on the table for you to help yourself, steak and... More

In some places it is described as the best Bistro in Paris. Do not know if it's the best, but we liked. Traditional, ancient, but without being demodeé. Friendly and efficient service. Good terrine, the lamb i ate was great, as is the Paris Brest. Who want a Paris bistro without being stolen in tourist restaurants came here.

Best steak I've ever had! Charred on the outside and tender oozing red on the inside. Lovely Green Bean Salad with Summer Truffle, a surprise offer! Service was brisk & polite! And oooh... the salted butter! Ask the waiter for it :)

Visited last night whilst staying with French friends who live locally. Having had an excellent meal last year at the fish restaurant next door under the same ownership, this bistro was of equal high quality. In a wonderful ambient and traditional environment, it was very busy and atmospheric on a lovely summer Friday evening mainly with French diners and a... More

It appears that the influence of the food writers and bloggers has turned this lovely restaurant into another Parisian tourist restaurant. Service was very fast but professional, and just rushed enough to get rid of us as quickly as possible. None of the personality that we have enjoyed so much on our previous visits, which was part of the charm.... More
