No idea what the food was like. Waited nearly fifteen minutes to receive a menu, staff seemed annoyed that we wanted to eat dinner there! Awful service. Left after we became sick of waiting.

I went there the last October with my friend, the coffee was near from the hotel we stayed so we decided to tried it one day. Was AMAZING, the place is beautiful, the view is beautiful, the service was so good. I don't have anything bad to say about this place. The first day we went to eat breakfast but... More

Fairly quiet so fast service. Pretty good food but the tables were small and there were too many in my opinion so it felt rather cramped.

This place was amazing! It had a great customer service, very friendly waiters there but also amazing food. We had brunch and enjoyed a delicious coffee and juice, tasty French bakery, eggs, samon and prawns and fruit and yoghurt. All for 22 euros!. Would love to go back :)

Unexpected find after the intended restaurant down the street had a 2 hour wait for Sunday brunch. We walked down to the corner and saw Cafe le Bisto setting up to open. We had our choice of seats outside and ordered sandwiches...Croquette Madam with fries and a salad. I love the salads in Paris...butter and a spring mix with light... More

This bistro was less than a block from our hotel and we visited several times during our stay. Good food and great prices. The staff was very helpful with our limited French and we enjoyed every meal.

This was a chance find after dropping our luggage off at the lockers in the train station near by. After one or two disappointing experiences in Paris it was so nice to find a truly memorable and delicious brunch here. I can't speak highly enough of this gorgeous place. I wish we had places like this in the UK I... More
