Pleasant little restaurant visible from the main road. Friendly waiting staff and a decent Steak Frites was the requirement following a long day and Au Bougnat delivered exactly this. Amuse Bouche of Tomato Gazpacho with Basil Pesto and what I think was Feta Cheese was very tasty. There was a nice ambience within the restaurant too and the decor was... More

This is a small bar-restaurant off the main street near Notre Dame was a welcome find. We were able to avoid the crowds of people on the streets just a 1/2 block away and enjoy a wonderful lunch. The food was well prepared and delicious and the atmosphere seemed real Parisian. It was a little more pricey than we usually... More

Literally 100 steps from our pied-à-terre. On this last trip we were determined to stop and have a bite. As we'd only had wine in the past. It has a lovely cozy wine bar in the front which I think is quintessential Paris in the afternoon/evening hours. The wine list is great and you will find a mixture of Americans... More

We were recently in Paris and just happened upon this lovely little restaurant tucked away in a corner. We had no reservation and they found us a table - this was around 7pm. The place quickly filled up. I had poached egg and snails to start - it was delicious. C had a goat cheese cannelloni which she really enjoyed... More

I don't know what I was expecting since it was on the island but if you want to be surrounded by a lot of loud Americans then this is the place for you. The food was okay and service very welcoming but understaffed for how many people were there.

The food in Paris is great with so many choices, but finding a real Parisian Restaurant with fine French food that caters to locals is truly a great find! After spending six nights in Paris, tonight, our last night, I found Au Bougnat in Tripadvisor and I am glad I did. We called around 5:00 pm to make reservations for... More

Since our daughter lives in Paris we usually like to visit restaurants that are more off the beaten track but shortage of time forced us into central Paris on a very wet and very busy Sunday. As per usual we had done our research and my wife found this eatery had an appeal for her. So off we go in... More

My wife and I had a very nice meal last week on our last night in Paris. Its in a touristy area but is away from the main street so it is a lot quieter. When we were there there were a lot of locals there so that always speaks about the qualiy of a place. The service was good... More

Great atmosphere, close to Notre Dame, Ok food , but you can find better elsewhere in Paris. People were nice, but it is located in a tourist area.

We were delighted to take just steps from Notre Dame and suddenly be on a nearly deserted alleyway leading to this unassuming bistro. There is a tiny bar at the entrance and a small but comfortable dining room behind. The service was efficient and friendly. This is good solid food at a fair price and welcome respite when there are... More
