Les Papilles has a set menu every night and it depends on the chef. You don't get to choose the food, so it's not a good choice for people that are not willing to try different things and/or go out of their comfort zone. For me, I eat pretty much anything and so I truly enjoyed our dining experience at... More

This is a very well run restaurant with excellent food and a great wine list. We had a meal here at the start of the month with 7 friends and it went with all the joy eating out in Paris should occasion. The locals were out in force and the traditional French dishes were all good. The Chablis washed down... More

Les Papilles is hands-down my favourite restaurant in Paris. The set four course menu never ceases to disappoint. You can count on this restaurant for phenomenal quality and value. Make this a must-visit on your next trip to Paris.

What a wonderful find. Myself and three friends celebrated a birthday at this restaurant. It had a typically French atmosphere.. The food was tastefully served, being a set four course for 35 euros. Each course was of the highest quality;both in the ingredients and their cooking. Very small so must book well in advance.

Superb food and wine, excellent service and a welcoming cosy atmosphere. The set menu with pumpkin and chestnut soup and the slow-cooked beef were exquisite. Very good value too at €35 for 4 courses.

Not your typical restaurant yet very french and authentic with a bistro atmosphere. You choose your wine from the large range of bottles displayed in the restaurant and have what everyone else is having: a set four course menu at a very reasonable price. Everything tastes great and you will be full in the end, guaranteed ;-)

Beautiful little French restaurant in the 5er with a great selection of wines and a beautiful set menu. Generous portions and lovely staff.

This cosy little bistro/delicatessen won't be to everyones taste, particularly if you like choice. For me however, I like the anticipation of a set menu that changes on a daily basis. We were served four courses (soup, main, cheese & desert), and asked for a recommendation for a wine that would work well with everything on offer. The food was... More

Maybe that's me but we have somewhat better French restaurants in Istanbul. Menu changes every day and overall price/performance is quite good. Main course was one I'm used to eat back at home though; probably it was exotic for this region. Staff is very fast and friendly with a rather funny selection of wine. Anything you choose, you can takeaway.... More

If you're looking for a restaurant to experience true french food but without the white table cloth price tag and surly waiters then this is the place for you. There is no menu but this is not a problem, the food is excellent and the portions far more than you can manage. For 35 euros we had a four course... More
