My family leaves near Le Havre and me and the wife and our 2 boys visits every year and I always look forward to my mum's cooking and all the choices you have in France. My mum takes the whole family almost every year to le bistro parisien and we never had a bad meal. This year was no exception.... More

What wonderful memories we have of this classic French bistro. We came for lunch and ate amongst the locals enjoying really filling and delicious French cuisine. Do not miss the egg/cream/salmon starter. It was sumptuous. We ordered the beef stew with sides of French fries, but ended up ordering the mashed potatoes once the food arrived. We were not disappointed!... More

I came here on Friday night with my friend. We both ordered a three-course menu. The atmosphere here is truly fine and exquisite. The servants are friendly and helpful. The food is amazing as well. In general, there's nothing bad to say about. I really need such a refreshing dinner to save my brain out of the crazy final week.

The place is well located close to the tram line and buses, city hall and shopping streets. It's big, noisy (like a real Parisian brasserie), lots of staff, good selection of food, and fresh food. The food itself is not only good, but served in large portions. You'll not go hungry after a visit here. Service is fast and friendly,... More

My starter was a poached egg with smokey bacon which was great, then beef bourguignon which came with French Fries, the meat was melt-in-the mouth perfect. My dessert was brioche with salted caramel and vanilla ice cream, which was a lovely ending. The wine was sensational (a bottle of Chateau Le Monge 2012).

Went here one evening for dinner with my wife. Located in the public square behind the Casino and only 2 minutes walk from the main shopping street. Had the menu of the day €22 and the food was outstanding, fresh, stylish and great value for money.

Conveniently located next to the town hall, near the tram stop Hôtel de Ville this place is great if you want a quick business lunch or a more leisurely meal. Great menu and daily specials, seafood bar. It is a bit noisy of course because it is always packed, but the food is worth it. The staff is also very... More

A visit ashore when on a cruise. We. always have mussels when in France. A very friendly inviting place. We were made to feel very welcome despite not speaking French. Excellent food and wine. Relaxed atmosphere lovely to so many families out for lunch.

Situated in a nice green and quiet area, at "Le Bistrot Parisien" you can spend a relaxing evening with family or friends. Rich menu, you can find any kind of meat, and well assorted salads. And of course, the French cheese that I die for. The food is not only very tasty, but is also nicely presented, and very important,... More

The service was excellent. Albeit we had a late lunch, the restaurant and atmosphere were busy. The Foie Gras and Lardon Pasta with Cream Sauce were superb. But, the Chocolate Fondant and Apple Pie desserts were, to put it simply, "to die for."
