“A vey nice little gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Probably relatively unknown and we only ended up here thanks to the recommendation of the concierge at our hotel. Having spent a small fortune at two other superb restaurants already, we wanted something a little less glamorous but still wanted to experience good food. This little bistro delivered on every level, offering a great balance between very high quality food and price with great friendly service thrown in for good measure. It really is a very nice little restaurant, not glamorous and no need to dress up to the nines, but well worth a visit. We award a 5 on the basis of this excellent little bistro not trying to be something it is not, it simply serves great food. The pate is a must try!

“Excellent bistrot: very good food, very high prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

In front of the statue of Moliere, this famous bistrot winner of a prize in 2012 offers the best of French delicacy: food, wines and spirits. Very cozy athmosphere but very high prices.

“Quality traditional French cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

A party of 5 for dinner on a Friday night among friends:
The host and maitre d'hotel are professionnal and nice. They welcome customers with special attention that makes you feel like if you were a regular visitor.
Although most of the dishes we order had too much salt, the 5 of us were happy with what we had: particularly Scallops were fresh. I recommend the pigeon as a main dish.
The help that we got for wine selection is smart and not stupidly 'the more expensive the better' as I see it often..
Surprisingly, the restaurant was not full. Maybe high prices are driving people away, certainly not the food quality.

“Good but chaotic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Had dinner at Les Bistronomes on the night we arrived in Paris as it was very close to our hotel. Had read some good reviews but had also heard the place was a bit pretentious. What we found was a small restaurant with tables a little too close together for comfort, serving very good food, although perhaps a little overpriced (but not bad by Paris standards). The two young guys running the place were very pleasant although seemed a little disorganised in the middle of a busy Saturday night service. We could not fault the food although both my wife and I thought it was good rather than truly memorable. My wife's abiding memory was actually the pickled vegetables that accompanied her starter (as she normally hates pickled veg!). The menu is quite concise, which I think is a good thing as it means there is more chance of food being fresh and the wine list likewise; again a little overpriced but you should find something good on it. To sum up; a great litle restaurant with very pleasant staff but perhaps a little. Would I go again? Yes, if I happened to be in the Palais Royale area.
