Our hotel was right down the block from this restaurant. I called randomly and my husband and I were able to snag the last two available seats at the late seating. Tiny, tiny place which could be off-putting but I found it charming. We were the only two Americans in the restaurant (which I loved). Food was delicious and the... More

This restaurant is extremely quaint and extremely French. They fit ~ 24 people into the space that typical North American restaurants fit 10-12. The wait staff/chef were extremely friendly, efficient and did an amazing job going above and beyond to make the experience enjoyable and authentically French. It was the best meal we had while in Paris and I'll difinitely... More

The service at Le Timbre was truly excellent. The chef/owner waitstaff were friendly and were quite concerned with how we felt about our dinners. As other diners mentioned, it is a tiny place but many of many favorite restaurants measure about this size. I had the pate de compagne, a lieu fish with small white peas (really beans) and the...

Very tiny - so the name, Timbre, or "stamp" - this is a must go. Reservations are absolutely necessary. I was there three times throughout the year and the quality is always good.

This restaurant was recommended and booked by the hotel we were staying at. I explained that I was a vegetarian and the hotel said that the restaurant would be able to accommodate me if they gave them notice. On arriving at the restaurant we were surprised to see that all the tables were right next to each other so that... More

I want to thank the chef Christopher Wright for giving my son Christopher and I many years of joyous blissful memories in your little piece of heaven. I can't tell you how happy your haven and meals made us. Well worth the trip from Toronto. Truly, truly a loss to the the culinary scene of Paris. But you will always... More

Yes, This is a small Paris restaurant and you sit close to your neighbor but who cares. We arrived half an hour late for our reservations ( get very precise directions-we didn't and were lost for almost an hour ). The waiter was funny and friendly. ( Everyone should attempt basic French-it made our experience much more enjoyable ) The... More

This is your typical small Paris bistro that servies a good traditional french meal.It is reasonalble priced with a decent menu selection. However, it is one thing for tables to be close as in many Paris bistros, but this is a bit extreme. The neightboring tables were literally only inches away and you could distinctly hear all of your neightbors... More

Le Timbre is a tiny place, so tiny that you virtually touch elbows with your fellow dining mates at the next table, which makes for some fun dining! It's impossible not to get to know the diners sitting next to you, and it's a very convivial and casual atmosphere. We ate at the second of the two seatings (the first... More
