We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening with excellent food served with care and good humour. Scallops roasted in their shells were superb,as were roasted brill and a perfect blanquette de veau served with potato purée. A board of perfectly conditioned cheeses was left at the table for us to serve ourselves. Something we don't see very often these days. Grand... More

Menu had some very traditional french fare including steak frites, veal tongue, chateaubriand, and sweetbreads. The service was attentive and the prix fixe menu offered many choices. Definitely a safe choice if you are staying in the neighborhood.

Been wanting to try this place for the past couple of trips as it is highly recommended by David Lebowitz and other Paris food cognoscenti. Certainly wasn't disappointed. The sweetbreads with mushrooms in puff pastry was a terrific start. Based on Lebowitz's recommendation, I ordered the Steak Frites which was very good but in hindsight I wish I had selected... More

Got to Bistrot Paul Bert at 6:30pm and was told that we would need a reservation as it was fully booked for the night. Luckily for us, the managed to accommodate 2 of us at 7:30pm which is the time they open. We were seated promptly at 7:30pm with smiles from the friendly wait staff. An English menu was provided...

Pate is crazy good. Steak at poivre and frites was just wonderful. And the Paris Brest was as good as it was beautiful.

Had planned for weeks to eat here on my wife's first visit to Paris after reading online reviews. Called to make reservations as soon as we arrived in our hotel. All they had was a 10pm opening. We gave our name and phone number and worked up a good appetite traipsing across Paris all day. But when we arrived, the... More

An oldie but a goodie! Don't expect anything too original but go for the good, copious dishes of French classics , as well as very good meat. I had the venison this evening and had started with the lovely foie gras. Dessert are good but very big..to share. Wine list is very interesting and we wen for a white Chinon... More

A bistro offering good French cooking with no fuss or pretention. We went for lunch and chose one of the set menus at 42 euros for 3 courses. Well worth the money and I could quite happily have eaten from the cheapest menu at 19 euros. We didn't book and were lucky to get a table.

Excellent meal for my family of five. The desserts were the most memorable - the Grand Marnier soufflé was the best soufflé my wife and daughter's had ever had and I really enjoyed the Paris Brest. What a treat. We also enjoyed the Venison and the scallops St. Jacques. Can't wait to go back.

This place is to die for. It's the best Paris bistro experience I've ever had- having lived in Paris for three years and visited on dozens of occasions. Everything you order will be excellent. The escargots and mushrooms are melt in your mouth good. Order steak frites (or one or their steak specials) and have the meat saignant (rare) -... More
