I've been there twice so far this year. French bistro, with a clientele that's half locals, half tourists. Classical French dishes, with a broad menu, very well executed, prime ingredients, very good service and good wine list. Great value for money. Definitely to be recommended...More

Very good experience in this small but welcoming restaurant. Home made specialties including “terrines” and traditional French dishes such as “blanquette”. The veal chop was superb and cooked to perfection. Good wine list at decent prices, excellent service.

We looked for a French cuisine restaurant near our hotel. We saw some reviews for Bistro Paul. We had a very good dinner with great dishes and lovely staff (speaking English). We recommend it very much. Enjoy
