Yet another great Parisian find. The restaurant is conveniently located just a few steps away from the place de Contrescarpe, across the street from the famous Hemingway's apartment on rue du Cardinal Lemoine.
What makes El Burro Blanco a very special place is the sincere warmth and friendliness of its staff combined with great prices and very decent food.
We booked our table through LaFourchette.com and got a 50% discount. Yes, not your meager 10% or 15% but 50%.
The restaurant offers a colorful interior and a cozy ambiance, the lights are subdued, the picturesque design is reminiscent of a Spanish/Basque rustic tavern. The live music serves as a harmonious addition to one's meal. The staff, servers and musicians alike seemed genuinely amicable and accommodating.
We ordered two appetizers, an Assiette de Tapas and Langustinos Plancha. Both were superb, but we would recommend the former; it offers a much more diverse selection of various Tapas dishes.
The Paella Mixte was very good too, and Paella Marinera a bit more conventional. With a bottle of 1860 Riscal, a bottle of mineral water and one dessert, our bill came up to an amazingly low 77€, after the discount applied.
Very good place, highly recommended.
