We have now eaten lunch at Citron Bistro on several occasions. The Croque Monsieur is exquisite, and the filet of haddock is perfectly prepared. The pork tenderloin is tender, moist and the peppercorn mushroom sauce is a perfect complement. We especially enjoyed the smoked salmon...More

This little restaurant is hidden away but it is very good! I love Paris and I love traveling, but French Cuisine has not my favorite. BUT Citron just may change my mind. I should share that it also has great German selections and great wine.
