Description: Dear customers, you are most welcome to bistro lorette but for those who do not yet know our restaurant it seems useful to clarify some important details. Firstly we are a neighborhood bistro, not a gourmet restaurant, we have neither the desire nor the claim, we are only 2 to manage the facility 1 kitchen 1 bathroom, so there may have the expectation (reasonable) at your arrival. Cooking takes time, we take the time, do you have time?

As far as food goes in Paris, well, you really can't go wrong. Even your humble road-side creperie is capable of whipping up a cheesy, pillow of buttery delight that will leave you in a heavenly trance for days. Bistrot Lorette however, is a place worth visiting and raving about, standing out from the crowd of superb eateries for value, quality, service and ambience. We knew we'd struck gold on our arrival - this little Parisian restaurant in the 9th arrondissement was already full of Parisians. Eat where the locals eat had always been my travel motto! We were lucky enough to be squeezed into a two-seater and politely and kindly welcomed and given menus (although great food is almost a given, manners and good service are not necessarily commonplace in Paris). The options were varied and interesting, with an emphasis on traditional cooking methods and using locally sourced produce. Our meal (which arrived in good time) was utterly divine. A baked cheese and aubergine ratatouille on a bed of fresh, lightly dressed leaves, a melt-in-your-mouth lamb fillet with glazed vegetables and seabass on a saffron risotto followed by a grande and glorious finale of pistachio torte with morello cherry sauce and gingerbread icecream. All this was accompanied by a local vin rouge, romantic low lighting and a the enchanting background 'music' of French chatter. Don't miss out on a visit to this Parisian gem - authentically French and a meal you cannot forget!

After arriving in Paris we wanted some proper french food local to our accomodation. We stumbled upon the Bistro Lorette and were warmly welcomed by the owner who was very helpful despite our pidgeon french! We had the 3 courses for 31 euros and a bottle of red which was excellent value for money and everything was cooked fresh by the owners brother alone, a very talented chef! We were a couple on a budget and were after aome good value food and this place did not dissapoint and the amuse bouche and unlimited bread was greatly appreciated by 2 hungry tourists! A restaurant not to be missed with an excellent atmosphere!

Im a food lover, and planned my week in Paris well in advance.
this bistro doesn´t have a website or an email, so you have to call to the restaurant in order to book.
I spent so many calls, get the machine most of the time, and when I finally reach the manager to make the reservation, he told me to call him the day before...that It wasn´t necesary booking 2 months earlier.
I arrived in Paris on Monday, and to avoid the miss communication I personally went to the bistro 3 days ahead to book...and VOILA: there were no place available
Rude manager, bad manners, maybe it´s a grEat dine experience, but you MUST know the sacrifice you´ll have to do and the lucky you must have to get a table.

My husband and I read good reviews about this restaurant and it was coincidental that our hotel is a few streerts away. We walked in the first time and was lucky to get a table. The food was amazing! Good value for money and the service was very warm and friendly. We had to come back the next day and try the other dishes. Will surely be back again!
