Le Petit Bofinger and its older brother across the road are a Paris institution. They will stay open as long as there are customers and that could be until two or three in the morning. The décor is traditionally French. Everything about the atmosphere, the culture, the ambiance is to be savoured. The problem with us tourists is that we... More

Really enjoyed my evening in the restaurant. Service was great. For the first time i tried snails for a starter which were lovely, and a duck speciality for my main which was excellent. Wine and dessert were also great. Atmosphere in the restaurant was nice and overall it was a lovely evening with great food.
