I hate writing negatives reviews and try to avoid them where possible, but our experience at Paul Bert was so disappointing that I feel I need to warn others not to waste their precious time in Paris on this lacklustre bistro. My wife and I ate here on a recent weekend trip to Paris. We love food and are always... More

Steak and fries at home just can`t measure up to a steak frite in Paris..it`s a part of the Gaullic atmosphere.I`ve got to have it at least once per trip. L`Etrecote serves nothing else and every corner cafe and bistrot offers it BUT Paul Bert does it right. Lots of options and the chefs whim(daily presentation) always produces a steak... More

We enjoyed very much our dinner. Very authentic feeling of a late night in Paris. You will need a reservation for sure. Menu is limited but very good.

After all the online reviews and recommendations from friends we had HIGH hopes which were not met. It is friendly and welcoming - waitstaff are helpful and wine list is excellent with a wide range of moderately priced to very special wines. However for 41 Euro - we expected tastier food and better choices. Octopus salad was very tough- scallops... More

I visited there with some coffee roasters and sommelier. They asked about wine a lot, and also some tricky order. Whereas the place was fully packed and stuffs looks so busy, the staffs took care of us patiently and nicely. Dish was really good, and desert too. I highly recommend the bistrot.

This bistro was a happy find. The food was great and the service good. I tried my first snail and enjoyed the Boeuf Bourguignon immensely but the tarte tatin was a triumph. The Ruinart may have helped. Loved it.

Book in advance. Best steak I have ever had, just let down by blunt knives. Have the cheese board at the end, it is so delicious.
