Description: Papillote is a casual French restaurant located in Downtown Savannah...
Papillote is a casual French restaurant located in Downtown Savannah. Papillote is a family run business, and we make everything here from scratch daily. Derrick is the head chef and deals with everything savory. His mother, Vilma is the pastry chef and deals with all things sweet. Eat in or take out - very casual and a great atmosphere where you order at the counter and enjoy your meal at any open table you want. We have daily specials, and cater to many different dietary constraints!

Wonderful lunch.. Twice!

My husband and I made this our first stop for lunch as soon as we arrived in Savannah- loved the tiny bistro atmosphere. Ordered Le Parisian and Croque Monsieur (technically wrong sandwich, had ordered Madame but looked too good to send back) and 2 glasses of wine. So good went back for champagne... read more

Well, it was my first experience with a real macaroon. Wow, they are super sweet, too sweet an experience for me I decided. And somehow eating lavender in a cookie was difficult. The puff pastry of the day was excellent. The quiche was light. I found the prices a tad high feeling and we did not get one of the... More

I lived in Savannah for a whole year and this was one of my favorite places to go! The service was great and the food was amazing! The desserts, Le Parisien and everything was great!

Most amazing breakfast I have ever had. We had a large group and the food came out in a reasonable period of time for a small business. Great service, amazing food.

Within easy walking distance from River Street, this lovely restaurant was just what we wanted. The decor was very tasteful; the service was great; and the food was extraordinaire! A picture perfect lunch!

I am ashamed to say how many times I have thought of the tuna fish sandwich I had at Papillote. How can it be that a simple tuna fish sandwich has bewitched and befuddled me? I have tried many times to replicate this sandwich. Basil, lemon, just the right touch of mayo, but I can never get it right. Papillote... More

Wonderfully prepared French cuisine in relaxed cafe setting. Order at the counter. Recommend the mango crab tartine & truffle potatoes. Excellent macarons. Feels like you are in Paris. Great little secret in Savannah.

We were looking for something a little different for lunch and decided to check this place out based on the good reviews. We were a bit hesitant about the "cuisine to-go" part as it was very hot outside and we were some distance from our hotel. As it turns out, they do have tables inside, including one large table that... More

Soup and cheese plate, plus a whole (warm!) baguette. Quick and delicious. We were just strolling Broughton Street as tourists.

Stopped in for a light dinner before closing. We had the special...potatoes fried in duck fat, a savory crepe with avocado, chicken, tomatoes and a sweet one with nutella. All superb!
