Pavillon de Paris is located in an older building a short walk north from the Chain Bridge on the Buda side. In good weather there is a lovely garden for outdoor dining, and during cooler or wet weather, there is a cosy dining room with seats for about 30 . The menu is French in style but the ingredients are local, absolutely fresh, and seasonal. At lunch time there is a bistro menu of two or three courses modestly priced around $15-20, and, often, a three course slightly more elaborate menu for about $24, or one can order a la carte. At dinner there are several table d'hote menus as well as a la carte choices. Good Hungarian and French wines are available by the bottle - or the sommelier will suggest pairings by the glass for each course. During our visits my wife and I have found the selections by the sommelier (who also doubles as a waiter and who is assisted by an able second in command) to be excellent and very reasonably priced (from $4-$9). The meals we enjoyed (lunch and dinner) were creative, beautifully presented, and delicious. Particularly interesting was a starter of roasted calamari stuffed with mild goat cheese cream and served with thinly sliced roasted zucchini and a puree of Jerusalem artichokes. The traditional confit de canard was "re-done" as finely diced and perfectly cooked duck within a delicate pastry shell and served with a red wine reduction with raisins along with seasonal root vegetables. The service was attentive and prompt, and it was impressive to listen to the waiters move smoothly from Hungarian to English to German to French as they moved among the tables. This restaurant is comfortable and pleasant with superb food and excellent service. Reservations are recommended especially when the weather limits the tables to those which are inside.
