Based upon the reviews we decided to try this bistro today, but unfortunately the place was closed down, anyone know if its permanent or just my bad luck?

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Les Papilles, which we chose based on Tripadvisor reviews. We were greeted by the chef and served a delicious cauliflower soup, a cassoulet, cheese course, and pana cotta for dessert. Accepted guidance on wine selection. Enjoyed dinner conversation with the adjacent table. A little tough to get to on a Saturday night from the other... More

The owner, Bertrand Bluy, really went out of his way to accommodate our travel time frame. We ended up eating lunch at this charming restaurant and had we more time would have gone back for dinner. The restaurant is small and charming. My husband and I immediately felt relaxed. We both chose the four-course meal and were more than satisfied... More

I went to Les Papilles for dinner and I must say it was a great experience. The restaurant is vibrantly decorated and tight knit. The first thing I would say is to definitely make reservations before you visit, or have your hotel concierge make them for you upon arriving. The menu was a 4 course prix fixe that changes daily....

It was a 4 course fixed menu. Everyone ate the same thing. Your only option is what wine you want with dinner. The food was good but if you are lactose intolerant, like my husband, this place is probably not for you. They were wonderful in tiring to accomadate his allergy but he missed out on a great meal because... More

This is a quirky bistro with good, hearty food. A word of warning....the place is tiny with 40 covers so if privacy or space is what you are after, this is not the place for you. We went for Saturday lunch. this is a set 4 course menu with no choice. If you are a picky eater or have allergies... More

The layers of flavor and attention to the fine details of the ingredients makes each course an interesting, beautiful and delicious surprise.

upon entering, Les Papilles fulfills your dreams for a classic-looking french bistro - intimate, charming, carefully illuminated. the restaurant also functions as a wine shop, and you can pair any wine in the store with your meal for an additional charge of €7 over the bottle price. the menu is set every evening, but they are also able to make...

Had high expectations but found the food too rich and too much. Starter of soup was so creamy and too large for 2 people. Main course was lamb and again it was huge and just not tasty enough. The cheese was the best part and then the pudding was pistachio panacotta but really was just a mousse. Wine choice is... More

We ate here on our first night in Paris and we were pretty wowed by the experience! I have never eaten anywhere quite like this before! Definitely book in advance as this place gets very busy. The restaurant is in a nice area near the Luxembourg Gardens. It is a wine shop with several small tables for dining. The tables... More
