7th Arrondisement neighborhood restaurant

The aromas were enough to draw us in as walked by this small restaurant at 38 rue Papety. We had Magret du Canard, stuffed with fois gras. The young waitress suggested we have it done as the French usually do - that is, medium rare. It was crispy on the outside, and simply delicious! The other... read more

Looking on trip advisor for somewhere near our hotel we found Abaco. The food was first class and reasonably priced. I am sure that as the reputation builds the place will become more popular - we were the only diners until about 9pm when a small party arrived.

The meal was the best we have had in France so far and the service was flawless. The staff were welcoming and very enjoyable to be around. And the price... MORE than reasonable. We are SO glad we booked here!!
