Our Favorite Place in Paris

This is restaurant is such a gem. Great charcuterie and cheeses. Great wine. Truly attentive owner. Yes, it happens to be in a really busy tourist area, but it's also small and special and doesn't at all feel like a tourist trap. Please go!

Very slightly off the heavily beaten path of tens of thousands of trippers every day. Slightly refreshing therefor that it is not overrun and is still somewhere that you can pause for a couple or three glasses of wine and perhaps a small snack. Friendly and convivial.

I am not sure how this place has so many great reviews. We ate here for lunch, and ordered le duo jamons. Way too much cheese for me. The service was nice and the restaurant is quaint, but it did feel like we were at a bar where the finest item to cook food in was a toaster oven.

My wife and I first visited this little wine bar in 1993 and nothing has changed in over twenty years. It has excellent wine selection, cheeses, and cured meats. It is not luxurious, but a friendly place for lunch or early dinner. We believe it is actually the best wine bar on the Seine. But you should know a few... More

So, boyfriend proposed on NYE in Place Dauphine at around 3pm. We were pretty ravenous, and most of the other places in the little square (if you can call it a square) appeared shut, this didn't, so we made the executive decision on the spot and walked in. It was really rather twee. I loved it. Small and intimate, which... More

Average food, expensive. We had tartines for lunch and thought the quality and quantity could not justify the price. Good point: The owners were very welcoming and nice.

We finally visited Henri IV on our recent visit to Paris after having passed it by on numerous earlier occasions. The escargot which we split to start our meal was excellent - warm, garlicky and bathed in butter. We were recommended a bottle of the Morgon which was perfect for our meal; Pork and Vegetables and the Sausages with Sauerkraut-... More

Had reservations, glad I did. Busy with locals and tourists who heard about the place. Small, so be prepared to get close with the people around you, but thats part of its charm. Set menu and daily specials, in English as well. Could image this being a regular spot if I lived in Paris, plan on visiting again when I... More

Staying in Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis

Neighborhood Profile
Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité, sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island, welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.
