Le Grand Bistro at La Muette in the 16th Parisian arrondissement is a Bistro with upscale attitude and a cut above the normal standard Parisian Bistro. It is easy to reach and is located just across from the line 9 Metro La Muette and there is a Vinci Underground Parking at Rue Passy just 2 minutes away.
There are three areas to the Bistro, The Bar area which also serves as a reception area. The main dining room which is on the right and than area at the back which I did not investigate. Make sure to reserve in advance for evening dinner as it is always busy and I recommend that you do not choose a table in the Bar area as it get crowded and can be chilly in the winter as it is just next to the main door. We ate in the main dining room which was very comfortable and nicely decorated with soft furnishings. lighting Mirrors and a wall with a waterfall feature with glass effect.
The staff are friendly and are happy to speak both French and English. The restaurant seems to be popular with local residents and an international set of business visitors.
You can select at will from the broad choice of dishes on the menu or you can choose the set three course menu by selecting from the 4-5 starters main courses and deserts market with a * for 39 Euro not including drinks. There is also a good selection of wines and aperitifs. We were five people for dinner and among the starters the smoked salmon was the most popular. For the main course I recommend the French Burger if you like substantial gourmet burgers, or the sea bass or salmon is you like something lighter. The Duck and Steak were also excellent choices according to my guests.
Deserts are beautifully presented and the portions are large so if you are feeling full give it a miss. The Creme Brulee is flambe and is lit at the table for a spectacular effect. the Milelfeuille is very good and the Pineapple fruit dish and fine apple tart definitely are worth a try.
Overall it is good value at about 50 Euro per head with drinks. It is stylish, comfortable, welcoming, and serves very good food. It is a great place for a special dinner out with friends family or business colleagues. Will definitely visit again.
