Description: We own a charming and authentic bistro from 1900 and we simply offer fresh products from "le marche" that our Chef Erwan le Gahinet puts together to create very tasty French cuisine. French and world cuisine because we litterally are globe trotters of bistros. We travel for food and we bring back authentic flavours from around the globe. We do everything to make you feel at home and very welcome in our restaurant. Only one saying guides us : the pleasure to please!We are opened from Tuesday to Saturday for lunch and dinner, closed Sunday & Monday. See you soon at BISTROTTERS!

“If you are lucky you will get the right waiter.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

Can't fault the food. It was very good, but pricey. Some people had the waiter (the owner I think) that was attentive and friendly. We did not. The restaurant was so hot (not even a fan) that we left before we finished. I thought I would pass out. It was our wedding anniversary, so was hoping for a better experience.

“Out of this world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

This place is amazing in every way. The bistro is exactly what you would imagine a classic French bistro to be, small and intimate but in no way cramped. Francois and his staff were very welcoming and helped with perfect wine selections. And the food, well what can I say... By far the best meal we have ever had, so good we came back few days later! If you are in Paris then you have to visit this gem, I am certainly planning a return visit!

“Best meal I had in Paris so far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

It's located in a quite area , not close to touristic places or city center but It surely worth it to go all the way there.
Food presentation is beautiful, service is young hardworking and nice, food is amazing and so tasty and fresh. Let me tell you... You can't be disappointed there.
I recommend the lamb...it was so well cooked that it felt like ice scream melting in my mouth. So hard to find good quality meat nowadays. This is the place to go!
Best quality/price as well! Please don't change that!

“Excellent food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

We had an incredible meal. Service was ok. They were very busy and had to get all the tables cleaned at once for the next sitting. Then they had to wait on all the new tables. I had the steak and it was just slightly overdone and my husband had the lamb and he said it was delicious.

“Excellent food, but limited choice and rushed staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

My wife, two sons, mother-in-law and I headed across from Ireland to Paris for 5 nights for our 20th wedding anniversary and mother-in-law's 70th Birthday. Prior to travel we made reservations in 3 restaurants - Bistrotters, Le P'tit breguet and La Bofinger and informed them of the reasons for our celebratory trip. For reviews of other two, see appropriate restaurant pages.

We received a friendly welcome from Francois and were shown to nice size round table, something we had requested if possible. The menu was brief, briefer still as one main course and one of the (4) deserts were unavailable. Francois advised on wine selection and his voice was perfect for us. The meal itself was outstanding, meats cooked to perfection and extremely tasty. We had looked forward to chocolate fondant, but it was unavailable.

The only issue we had with Bistrotters was the guys literally running around, and the queue of people waiting for the second sitting @ 9pm, many outside the door. With a crowd standing around us we felt obliged to skip potential coffees, pay the bill and leave. Perhaps the restaurant is one person short for floor service. However this did not distract from an excellent meal, and will return next time in Paris. Thanks guys!!
