Oh my! This place was great. We ate here twice on our trip to Paris, once with two friends and then we came back on our own. Sit down, put yourself in their hands, and enjoy a truly memorable and marvelous dining experience from beginning to end. (Reservations are really a must since this place has been 'discovered' by Rick... More

This restaurant was well reviewed by everyone and everyone was right. There is a set menu everyday so you get what the chef has prepared. During our visit we had the pleasure of starting the meal with gazpacho with goat cheese and crispy croutons. It was so flavorful and refreshing. The next course was lamb shoulder slow cooked with Mediterranean... More

This was our second time visiting this restaurant and it is great to see that the food is still fantastic, the service exceptional and the ambience is second to none. This is a ' must " for any visitor to Paris. We ate at many restaurants in Paris over the last few days but nothing comes close to this. My... More

Yes it's a set menu and the wine selection is restricted to bottles only (which can be a serious task for a solo traveller when confronted with how much they feed you as well), but these very minor issues are offset by the fantastic cooking and friendly service. I had lunch there and it was one of the best I've... More

We had the set lunch today. Leek soup. You pour this onto your plate that already had bacon, herbs, greens and croutons in the middle and a dollop of sour cream. What a wonderful way to start the meal. The tastiest dish off the meal. The next course was slowly cooked lamb shanks in a vegetable stew. The meat just... More

After eating randomly for a lot of different cafés around the city, today was definitely a wonderful treat to the food senses to have a skillfully executed and presented meal. We ordered the set meal of the day (starter/plate, plate/dessert) based on fresh ingredients. The starter was a pea soup, with bacon and other scrumptious greens. It is beautifully plated,... More

I can't say enough good things about our experience at Les Papilles. The four courses were all delicious, high quality and fresh dishes. The price was wonderful too. We will be back every time we return to Paris. Highly recommended

Journeyed here with a group of fellow rugby supporters and what a fine night of dining we had. The manager was more of a host, regularly checking in with us and regaling us with great stories of his recent trip to Dublin. We were sequestered downstairs in the cellar at a large communal dining table (upstairs is more for small... More

We enjoyed our dinner here with friends. There is a set menu that changes every day, and the chef is also happy to accommodate anyone with food allergies and offer another choice of food. The soup was outstanding, and the main course (we had beef that day) was out of this world! It is fun to sit in a small... More

My boyfriend had read about the place on TripAdvisor, we decided we would call in just to see what it was like- we thought a four course meal in the afternoon might be abit excessive but we loved it! It was pricey for our budget but it was well worth it for the quality of food we received. I do... More
