We absolutely love this place and make a point of visiting for lunch each time we visit paris. A meat platter, a cheese platter and a bottle of wine shared with family and/or friends in this truely unique french cafe makes any visit to Paris even better. Desserts are to die for and no visit to this quaint little place... More

Love this little place. We've visited Paris off and on since the 70's and this place is still a gem. Over the past few years we've been sad to see there are less of these places. Trendy over-priced bars are gradually taking over this market and they're a poor copy. Taverne Henri IV has great wines, great cheeses and great... More

Four of us went to the Henri IV for a light supper after watching the World Cup match at the nearby Highlander pub (also very good). We had read that Henri IV was good, but were forewarned that if you didn't speak French don't bother. Nothing could be further from the truth, at least in our experience! We made a... More

I discovered this little Bistro close to the Pont-Neuf years ago with a friend and did not find it again until my husband came with me to Paris. He knows his way around and so we were once again able to enjoy a lovely lunch at Taverne Henri IV. As was the case during my first visit, again only the... More

My wife and I ate "dinner" at the Taverne the day we arrived in Paris--it was close to our hotel and served food early. We loved the simple, what I believe is authentic simple French tavern food. The food was well prepared and reasonably priced. The wine recommended by our server was perfect. Given the service and the very reasonable... More

We were there in July and had their house summer salad. So tasty! Here's a blog I wrote about it: http://www.zengirlchronicles.com/2014/05/the-art-of-perfect-summer-salad.html Best location, right next to the river and walking distance to the Louvre.

Great spot for lunch located on the south side of the Pont Neuf, on the ile de la Cite. Gets very crowded with locals for lunch, so make reservations. The food is excellent, with daily selections on the reader boards. Country dishes with many meats, pates and salads. My friend had a sausage with lentils dish which was fantastic as... More

This is the oldest wine bar in Paris; that in itself should be enough to interst you. Luckily, it is also warm and welcoming, with a great selection of French wine. I have been there on two separate visits, and was delighted each time with the wine and the knowlege and friendliness of the young man who tends bar. His... More

Corner site. Nothing special but friendly place to drink and snack. Heart of tourist land just by the Pont Neuf. Retains simple Parisian cafe feel. Prices average. Food straightforward and well presented.
