You will feel like you are in a Paris Bistro in France. There is outdoor seating, but we like the atmosphere inside. Great French waitstaff and the food is superb. We have dined here on many occasions and each time is wonderful.

From France to Florida ... Paris Bistrot is an authentic French bistro like in Paris ! Over 27 years of experience they are serving crepes (sweet or savory), salads, sandwiches, quiches at breakfast-lunch time and dishes as Beef Bourguignon or Pork tenderloin in black pepper and Cognac sauce directly from Grandma's recipes book for diner. Don't miss out the weekly specials and the delightful desserts what makes the dinner even more unique. For a romantic and intimate diner or a nice gateway with friends, Pierre and Christopher will be glad to welcome you !!
