We visited this cafe 2 years ago on our first visit to Paris and it has only got better. The owner speaks little English but his team have vastly improved. That said the quintessentially French cafe doesn't feel as though it has been overrun by tourists. The quality of the food is second to none. And they have a brilliant... More

Lovely local restaurant which we went to about 7.45pm on a Wednesday night. We were very lucky as the place was packed and we had no reservation, but after a jovial welcome a table was quickly found amongst the crowd of locals. A very good wine list but with the assistance of very helpful staff we explored the board which... More

Very lively and friendly and efficient service. Yes it does favor meat. Menu is limited but then the dishes seemed to be freshly prepared. Food was very good for traditional dishes. Typical small cafe with good selection of wines also.

This is a classic French bistro, on a lovely quiet street with other restaurants. Hearty peasant cooking. But if you're looking for fish, salads, or veggies, the choices are limited. My husband had an excellent boudin sausage (tasted very home made) with buttery whipped potatoes. I had the burrata with figs and hazelnuts. Good selection of wines and beer.

This was one of our best meals in Paris. Very authentic and original. We had almost everything on the menu and it was absolutely perfect. You should include this in your Paris itinerary for sure.

We discovered it by chance a mere block from the Parthenon. It is stylishly decorated with wide open windows overlooking a pretty garden square. The staff are pleasant and helpful. The coffee is the best I've had in Paris (over a few trips). The menu is very succinct but so far everything has proved delicious, fresh and interesting (over a... More

The interior is sophisticated yet cozy. Our server was a delightful young woman: confident, helpful and friendly. I was a little put off at first because I am a non drinker and in my experience wine bars have limited menus. I ordered the mozzarella and eggplant small plate - absolutely delectable. I tasted my friend's blood sausage and wish I... More

Hidden in a small street behind the Pantheon, this french brasserie is an excellent choice for dinner. Quite no tourist, compare to other restaurants around. The food was excellent and there's a large choice of wine.

This place is unpretentious and authentic. Staff are friendly and helpful and understanding of stilted attempts at French! Wines are excellent quality and choice with over 12 varieties sold by the glass half litre or bottle. Cheapest was 4eu a glass/22eu a bottle. The menu changes a few items over the week with around 6 starters 7-10 eu, 3/4 mains... More

Although tucked away down a side street, this place is definitely worth looking around for. I had it recommended by a friend, and I was not at all disappointed. The atmosphere is amazing - the staff are friendly and chatty (as are the other customers!) and the restaurant itself is tastefully decorated and welcoming. The prices are very reasonable, even...
