Our lunch at Les Papilles was one of the highlights of a week spent in Paris in October. One of the owners very kindly explained to us how the prix fixe menu worked and what was on offer that day. We could each have all three courses or share a first course (fabulous carrot soup!) or dessert (a very light... More

My husband and I truly enjoyed our dining experience at Les Papilles. Delicious without being pretentious, the four courses and a bottle of wine were a true value at 139 euros. We chose a bottle of wine from the wall upon recommendation that we were quite happy with. The pumpkin soup served family style was out of this world. The... More

Excellent food, service, atmosphere. No choice for our Euro 35 supper but each course is explained and the menu changes daily;wine mark up is Euro 7 per bottle irrespective of price in shop. We had a large tureen of excellent celery soup which we ladled onto soup plates with bacon and croutons already siting on them, followed by delicious, tender... More

My wife and I had lunch here and it was probably one of our best meals in Paris. Four courses for 35 euros, with each course delicious and generous. We had a wonderful cauliflower soup, a tasty lamb so soft that no knife was needed, a hearty serving of cheese, and one of the best desserts we've ever had here,... More

My wife and I visited the restaurant during our weekend in Paris. The reservation was made well in advance, as the place is usually booked and people walking in from the street have minimal, if any, chance of getting seated. The overall atmosphere is very inviting and relaxed, with the owner, Bertrand, approaching every guest and walking them through the... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant the 13th of November, and it was a great experience. Everything was brilliant from the service to the wine and menu. We had a very nice four course menu incl. vine, and we only paid 120 Euro's. Great value and the best dinner that we had in Paris! I can recommend this place... More

My friend and I were determined to find this restaurant after reading numerous food blogs and reviews. After wandering around the neighborhood (I forgot to write down the address, and no data on my cell!), we finally found this charming restaurant and enjoyed what we both considered one of the best meals of our lives. It was lunchtime, tourist free,... More

My partner and I ate here on our last night in Paris. Really wished we had come here earlier on our trip so we could have eaten here a few more times. Incredibly good value for money. The chef sets the menu and you choose your wine from the range on the wall. The food was amazing. Started on a... More
