This old French cafe restaurant is extremely lively! Old man plays the "orgues de Barbarie" all night! Communal tables invite diners to sing along classic songs from Edith Piaf, Charles Trenet, Jacques Brel and many more while eating and drinking terroir dishes and wine. Located...More

What I loved about my visit to Le Vieux was the woman with an accordion singing classic, popular French sings, and all of the people there joining in singing as one huge family! This was a unique experience! The wines are quite good. The food...More

Visited this place on Saturday 1.4. with my mother. We had learned there would be music and singing. Little did we know that we would find ourselves in the middle of a "let-us-all-together-sing-old-french-songs-together-accompanied-by-wonderful-woman-on-accordion" evening 😀 Simply the place to visit if you look for service...More

Entering the small restaurant is like making a time-travel in the Paris of the 40's and 50's: you imagine you can meet here Jean Gabin, sitting at a solitary table drinking a glass of red wine. Small tables, red and white checkered tablecloth, wooden chairs...More

Belleville / Pere Lachaise
At the eastern edge of Paris lies Belleville / Père
Lachaise, an understated wonderland of local
treasures. Alongside the world-famous cemetery,
family-owned delicatessens and cafés nestle between
local stores and establishments. The richness of the
population here has created a little Chinatown of
Asian restaurants, and the area comes to life at night
by a funky underground scene. Façades change from one
