We were at A la Biche au Bois last night to celebrate our anniversary (it would normally be slightly out of our price range, as students). It was our first day in Paris, so my boyfriend called the restaurant a few days before to make a reservation. They were extremely friendly, happy to speak English after he inquired in French...

This is a great bistro - very traditional French bistro food at a very reasonable price. Family owned and great service, though the evening we were there, November 13, we became disturbed as service slowed and we became anxious to leave by 11:00 after arriving at 9:00PM. We were annoyed that we couldn't get our l'addition and when it arrived... More

We had a great evening with a lot of amazing experiences in our mouths! The foie gras, the duck, the mash and the cheese were the best we ever had.. We will come back again for sure.

We have eaten here twice, so can say it is reliably good. Even on our first visit we were made immediately to feel genuinely welcome and at ease. An easy place to visit often. Best vallue at lunch, as is common in France. Note that it is closed at weekends.

My wife have been to this great little restaurant 3 times now. It's always been a lovely dining experience, with a broad traditional French menu and prompt friendly service. It's a great place to try some traditional French favourites. Prices are reasonable & it's easy to locate.

My boyfriend and I dined here in early December and had a wonderful meal. We had four courses and so thankful we ordered the cheese, it was extremely high quality and wonderful. The first waiter we had was a bit cool, but about mid-way through the meal several of the younger staff and the owner (or manager) started taking care... More

Great classic restaurant, best to go during the winter months to enjoy their speciality, game-deer and wild duck were on the menu the night I was there. The 4 course menu for €31 is delicious and one of the best value menus in Paris, so make sure to arrive hungry! A tiny restaurant, reservations are essential.
