Description: On the banks of the Seine, moments from Paris' Ile de la Cite and within easy reach of Paris' most celebrated landmarks is Le Tournebièvre restaurant . The first thing that will undoubtedly strike you about the restaurant (formerly Le Rencard Gourmand) is the breathtaking view across the river. But quite apart from the fairytale setting, Le Tournebièvre is special in its own right. Its classic French bistro cuisine is hugely popular with locals so it provides a real Parisian experience, quite apart from the usual tourist-version of Parisian dining. The simple bistro interior is accompanied, in the summer months, with pavement dining under a wide, shady awning. The traditional French menu is created using fine, seasonal ingredients, with a wide choice for all tastes. And, sacre bleu, the service at Le Tournebièvre is both professional and genuinely friendly.

We visited the restaurant twice, once in spring 2013 and once summer 2013.
First time we were only two adults, we had a very nice lunch: good food and wines.
The second time we had our children (6 and 8 years old) with us. They have very special preferences about the food, but the restaurant had no problems fixing it.
We can really recommend the restaurant.
Take a look at their menu at their web for the prices. The food was worth the price, specially because the location.

Easy to find,but rather dubious from the outside,this very popular restaurant met all our expectations once we were seated.It was a busy Saturday night and my party of eight were soon settled at our reserved table.The atmosphere and animated conversation surrounding us provided a lively start to our evening.The hard-working staff quickly explained the menu choices,we made our selections and wine,water and bread soon appeared on the table.We chose the three course meal and soon were enjoying a delightful variety of starters.I opted for the beef fillet (at a supplement).The texture and flavour were superb,the additional black pepper sauce was the perfect accompaniment.Everyone enjoyed their main.For dessert,I opted for profiteroles,a house speciality.What a spectacular sight-and taste!!It was unforgettable! The only possible criticism we could make is that the cheese cake did not meet the expectations of two ladies.This special occasion was to celebrate the 30th birthday and engagement of our grandson and his lady.It was a very successful choice.The cost was reasonable,the service was very good indeed.I confidently recommend this restaurant for visitors to Paris.Do reserve your table!!

Great food, great service, great location, great price. Even with two jet lagged kids- there was no complaints. Great place. Have already re- booked. Book ahead to avoid disappointment.

We had dinner for my birthday and what a great experience! The food was phenomenal. I had shrimp as a starter in an avocado mango salsa to die for. The lamb entrée was the best I have ever had. The service couldn't be any better. They really go above and beyond to please the customer and it shows. We will definitely go back any time we are in Paris.
