The Highlight of our Paris Visit

This restaurant was an absolute high light for us on a recent trip to Paris. We were craving heart, local French fare in a warm and comforting setting. When we arrived at the restaurant it was still early in the evening by Paris standards (around 730pm) and so we didn’t have a problem securing a... read more

Loved our dining experience at la Biche au Bois. The owner was charming and attentive. We enjoyed our conversation with him and a french family nearby. The bistro food was delicious, we enjoyed each course.

I had so much fun here, with my family, the waitstaff and our dining neighbors. They want you to have a good time! Don't get carried away and drink too much wine like I did. We had steaks, which were very good, but the highlight was my friend's rabbit pâté. She's a very good friend and she gave me half.... More

We had a nice tradition french meal. We had escargot, Coq au Van, lamb chops and finally our chocolate mousse, which was delicious. The food is good and the place was packed for a Tuesday night. We ate things here, that were not on menus in other establishment. If you like traditional cooking, I would suggest coming here. They also... More

The restaurant isn't located in the most charming area but it seems quite popular with tourists and locals. The service was friendly. We ordered from the prix fixe menu. Hubby had steak and frites. Hubby ordered a terrine appetizer with pate and I've forgotten what mine was. His steak was small but good and the frites were good. I had... More

Went here for dinner as a solo diner, and had a good, quality meal. I made a reservation ahead of time, which seems fairly necessary based on how many people I saw turned away at the door, and it's very packed both inside and out. The food was good, the waitstaff was nice (and spoke decent English) and the atmosphere... More

I love this restaurant loads and loads. Have been about 5 times, every time has been SUPERB. Set menu for 4 courses, delicious every time, massive portions, such good value for money. Very traditional, always good atmosphere, service always very friendly and efficient. I LOVE IT! Everyone should go there. Only problem is that it's not open on weekends.

My word, this is a poor place. Low quality ingredients, boringly cooked. How this found a place in the Michelin Guide, I just can't understand. It's a rank tourist trap, but also rammed with locals. What are they doing there? The guide is usually so reliable. I ate a la carte as a little celebration of a great day and... More
