Authentic small Parisian Bistro with its very own personal atmosphere. One of my favorite Restaurants in Paris - very traditional French cuisine with a large choice of typical meat and fish main courses, various starters and desserts. My all time favorites are: hareng et ces pommes tièdes – the herring with warm potatoes ( starter) confit de canard - the... More

2 stones in salad. Can happen... Almost broke my teeth. The Resturant still charge us for the salad. The Resturant gave us shenaps drinks at the end of the meal. The place does not look clean. Food was ok. We do not recommend. There are many other better places in Paris. I have nothing else to add. Paris is great.... More

Comparatively unspoilt. Very hospitable and friendly. Good value early evening supper. Would come back. Heavy tourist zone but most customers seemed to be regular locals.

....it's the inside that counts. Very quaint Parisian restaurant with good service, fresh and plentiful food and a warm welcome - including with children. Just what you would want from a visit to Paris.

Decent food well priced. Very cramped. The tables in the front room are an inch apart so be prepared to make new friends. Nice staff with limited English but enough to get by. Not romantic.

We stumbled upon this restaurant on a Wednesday evening and were greeted at the door by 2 ladies working front of house. I apologised for not speaking French very well but we all had a laugh as they both read out the menu to us trying to meet somewhere in the middle so we all understood what each other were... More

Like the old days of Paris, this is a great little find. Hearty, tasty traditional French dishes. Liver, duck, crème brulee, good wine, nice service. A no frills, charming little restaurant which is a lovely haven from the insanity that can be Parisien streets. We would go again next time we visit this amazing city.

Le Gros mine is a small unassuming restaurant tucked in a small street by the Centre Pomidou. It is quaint, local, and a real find. The food is everything we anticipated French cooking would be, and is a must stop for us when we are in Paris. From the first Wild Goose in Blueberry sauce 10 years ago to Roasted... More
