This was our favorite restaurant while in Paris. The food is well done and and everything tastes great. This is a small place and the owner, I assume, is the waiter. It appears he runs everything out front and someone else cools in back. I think it is a 2 person operation. Which was quite impressive. For this reason when... More

Charming small restaurant with excellent cooking. Service excellent and the welcome warm. Nothing could be further from the "chain" establishments

I was traveling to Paris for 2 nights over NYE and contacted this restaurant 2 months in advance to make sure we could get a reservation. My booking was confirmed with an email and a subsequent phone call from the restaurant requesting we come in 30 minutes earlier than I had booked online. We showed up that evening and the... More

We booked in advance and when we arrived discovered a quaint and small restaurant which was busy and it's clear you will need to book in advance or there is no hope in getting a table. That's because the food was something else. From an a la carte menu, I chose the boar stew as a main, and although my... More

On the steps from the Eiffel Tower, this restaurant is excellent. The foie gras, bass and molten chocolate cake were excellent. The salad with shrimp had a delicious salad dressing made with beets. Service was warm and inviting. A full three course meal for €34 was a great value. The food was fresh, inventive, and delicious. Having been to hundreds... More

You won't get much better than this. Charming little place offering three courses for 34 euros. Four plus choices for each course. Copious servings. Half a Camembert was left on the table for me to help myself to. You should reserve to be sure of a table.

La Billebaude is one of the top restaurants in Paris. I went to try it with high expectations but left disappointed. Don't get me wrong as the food is good and the place has a nice ambiance, quite relaxed, however, the service is so slow that you have to wait a tremendous amount of time to get your food. I...

We chose La Billebaude to have our last meal on our 6 week European holiday. I had booked well in advance and received confirmation 10 days before we were due to be in Paris. We really loved our meal here. We were expertly served by Pascal, who expertly manages all the tables, the bar and the coffee preparation on his... More

. I almost cancelled this reservation. I think it is the name of the restaurant that just struck me cold. It didn’t mean anything to me so I couldn’t relate to it being good food. However, since I had worked so meticulously to select restaurants for this trip, I decided to trust my initial intuition and research and keep my... More
