Considering this is in Paris, I found the prices to be quite reasonable. The food was fantastic, leaving you full but not stuffed. The wine list was very nice as wel. The chef very attentive to detail. Very kind server (wife of chef?) did her best to accommodate our English speaking. Much better than most restaurants in Paris and not... More

This tiny ("postage stamp") restaurant is slightly off the beaten track. Capacity is just 20 people! Set menu, choice between 3, 4 or 5 courses. Delicately balanced and exquisitely composed food. Surprising combinations, yet classical style. The chef is working alone is the tiny open kitchen while his wife lovingly looks after the guests.Silently efficient, always at hand whenever needed...

When we arrived at Le Timbre in mid September, we were initially very upset to see that the chef whom we loved was no longer there having left one month prior. However, the new chef is his equal and we had a delicious meal. The chef's wife acts as hostess and is very charming and helpful. She gave us a... More

We were so relieved to find that Le Timbre, which my wife and daughter enjoyed so much on their visit, was still alive. My daughter had given me a sum for my birthday with the proviso it be spent at Le Timbre. But then Le Timbre was sold. Qui sait? But in this instance, the chef seller knew and admired... More

We attended the opening night and Manny M's review was absolutely correct. The whole evening was very good. Agnes gave us a lovely bottle of Pinot Noir, she was a bit nervous how things would go. She needn't have worried, she and Charles have Le Timbre in good hands. We shall certainly return and we wish them all the best... More

This was one of our favorite restaurants in Paris and so we were concerned when we learned there was a new chef. However, our dinner was wonderful - very elegant and delicious. Still a charming place with great, creative food. We will be back

We have been regulars at Le Timbre for about 6 years. Last night's meal was a great experience. My wife and I found our expectations were exceeded by a wide margin. Bravo!

Very petite and intimate restaurant. The menu is your choice of 3,4 or 5 courses. You are subject go the... More

Tonight was their first night in this remodeled space (same name as before) and Charlie ans Agnes shined in thier debut. They offered four, or five courses, but were willing to adjust to three if the customer was so inclined (we were). First off, the space has been revamped and is brighter and more inviting than before. There was quiet... More
