Had a great meal sitting outside at Bistrotters following the reopening of restaurants in Paris post-Covid lockdown. Great value for very high quality, very fresh food. Top marks for having a vegetarian main course (they should ensure they have a vegetarian entree too). Pain perdu...with salted caramel was a treat.More

The wine was very nice, let’s put that first. However, we were disappointed about the rest of our experience with Bistrotters. The food was not very good. We had salmon with dashi for starters. The salmon was very salty en the rest was tasteless. We...had the smoked chicken (which was a bit dry and plain) and the rib eye (which was extremely crispy(?!) on the outside, which made it really hard to cut). Our dessert was okay. Furthermore, we got some bread on the side. We saw on one slice something which looked a lot like fungus cause it was blue. The bread felt fresh, so we thought it would be weird that it might actually be fungus. However, it didn’t look very appealing to eat, so we made a note about it to the waitress. The way she handled this note was very rude. She didn’t take it seriously and came to our table shaking her head and telling us it couldn’t be. It made us feel like complete fools, since we didn’t have any bad intentions.More

I love this restaurant, and always make sure I take the time to visit whenever I am in Paris. It never disappoints. Lovely atmosphere and close-knit friendly staff. The pork belly is incredible, can not fault it. The chocolate brioche is my favourite dish in...the world. Mind-blowing. Must visit!More

Amazing food and very friendly staff ! I go there as often as I can, it's never a disappointment. One of the best price/quality ratio in the city. Strongly recommend the French Toast (a classic !), it is to die for. Also, the restaurant's wine...selection is also very good ; ask for advice, the staff is very knowledgeable and will guide you with the best pairing.More

I've now been to this restaurant at least 5 times and can honestly say it never disappoints. The menu changes frequently (aside from a few staple dishes like the pain perdu), and everything I've had there has been delicious!

As an American living in Paris, this is my go-to restaurant whenever people from out of town are visiting. It's perfect to impress friends and family -- you get the charm and sophistication you expect when you think of France and the food is always...delicious and beautifully presented! Because the restaurant is off the beaten path, there are always locals dining there and the value is fantastic. Highly recommended whether you live in Paris or are visiting.More

My favorite restaurant in Paris! Fantastic and creative foods. A very pleasant dinner for my boyfriend and me. The Chef spent some time with us and is so very talented. The food is amazing here but what really impressed me was the service. The attention...to detail from the staff was impeccable. Looking forward to being back as soon as I can.More

Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of us during our visit to the Bistrotters. You and your staff were so very accommodating and informed about our special dietary needs. Next time we will be in Paris will definitely come back!

The only way would be to call them. Man on and her husband both speak excellent English.

It’s written in French but the owner/waitress speaks very good English. No problems.
