Great Paris Bistrot!

I ate here recently with a group of 6 and I already plan to go back next month. The atmosphere is typical Paris Bistrot, and very charming. The fixed price menu (at 38EUR pp) is a very good value for the quantity and quality of food. I like that the menu changes frequently, and one of our... read more

Lunched at Paul Bert before walking around Pere Lachaise cemetery. And we needed to walk it off. Wife and I both had the steak au poivre, medium rare with that great sauce, and the top frites in Paris in my opinion. Pan-fried to a char with rare inside was a real treat, as was dipping the frites in the creamy... More

This is a place you definitely need a reservation and one side is for "tourist" and the other for the locals. Reviews were hit or miss on this place but we decided to give it a try and were glad we did, the desert in particular which was a souffle was one of the best deserts I have ever had... More

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

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.
