Recommended by our hotel staff- we were looking to enjoy a traditional French meal while visiting Paris for business. We were able to reserve a table on short notice, but they were completely booked after 8pm on a Thursday night.

The atmosphere was lovely and cozy; it was quiet at first, as we were the first customers dining- 7pm is considered "late" to eat for us early-bird Americans. As 8pm came around, people started to pour in and the atmosphere became lively and bustling. There was lots of laughter and wine flowing.

After staring at the menu for 10 minutes, my partner and I went for the chefs choice/ "surprise us" 7 course taste sampler at 50€ per person. Each course was beautifully presented and a nice sized portion for being a sampler.

Our starters included: pork's trotter carpaccio, clams with herbs, and watercress soup
Each were equally mouth watering and satisfying. The watercress soup was especially my favorite.

Our main courses were: cod roasted with winkles and tender veal shank. Each was cooked to perfection and the attention was in the details.

Our desserts were: pineapple poached with coconut milk and strawberries with white chocolate genache. They were just sweet enough and not overly rich- which was a perfect ending to a scrumptious meal.

Needless to say, I'm glad I wore my stretchy pants because I was completely full and wonderfully satisfied when we were finished. The chef did an excellent job and it was a nice experience for my partner and I to be surprised with the food, because those were not particular items we would have chosen on our own, but each was delicious. Hats off to the chef and we will absolutely be back the next time we are in Paris!

Le Beurre Noisette is the perfect Parisian bistro - a real find. Go for the seven course menu. And book a table well in advance.

Recently had a fantastic meal in this wonderful bistrot. The menu was varied and exciting. The four of us all enjoyed different dishes, chicken, fish and rabbit. The service was helpful and efficient. Cannot wait to go back!

This was the first restaurant me and my friend tried on our vacation in Paris. We made reservations a week ahead for the prix fixe lunch menu (30€ for 3 courses).

Location and Ambience:
While located in the southern part of central Paris (next to the Expo), it is easy to reach due to the tight metro system. The restaurant is quite small and crowded, as is common in Paris, and the atmosphere is very bustling and energetic. The place was quite full even though we arrived early, and got packed later on. It was not too loud though. The decor is modern and pleasent.

Service:
We were served by two waitresses throughout the meal, who served the entire place. We were given the large menu on a board and were asked to hold it upright, which was funny but cute. Our waitress was young, very energetic and friendly - and spoke good English when our French broke-down. The other waitress was also very friendly and had decent English. Overall the service was very good, despite being slow (which is not a fault - it is a principal to enjoy a long meal in France). Though both serveurs were running around the place, they were very efficient.

Food:
The food was very "warm" and home-y in a sense, and was very well executed and presented throughout our meal. We started with a remoulade of beets and salmon, which was simply excellent with both the freshness of the fish and the fresh combination of flavours. A dish of oysters on green risotto was very delicate and balanced.

For the main course I had a puff pastry filled of thin with duck meat and liver, with a small green-leaf salad on the side. While the salad was completely out-of-place (perhaps just green decoration), the duck pastry was juicy, steaming and delicious. It would fit right next to a fire place and a large comfortable bed...
My friend had rabbit legs rolled with ham, along with caramelized vegetables on a chickpea puree. While the presentation was great and the dish very tasty, it was not stellar as rabbit often tastes like chicken and the combination did not make it something new.

For dessert we shared a "Baba Rum" - a sponge cake with which a large bottle of Rum was served. We were told to use as much Rum as we liked. Fresh whipped cream with vanilla was served on the side. The dessert seemed very popular, and was only decent in our view.

Overall we were very happy with the food (particularly with some dishes). The presentation was nice and the portion - very generous.



Drinks:
Since we had a long day ahead of us, we settled for tap water, though the wine selection is decent. An espresso to end the meal was OK - not burnt, but not particularly fine either. We did not expect more on that front.

Prices and value:
At 30€ for a 3-course meal and 22€ for a 2-course meal, we found such good food to be of very good value. The dishes were also very large and we were completely full at the end.

Summary:
A great way to open our vacation - really nice, friendly and english-speaking service; large servings of good food, at times even creative and great; good value for your money too!

Had been passing near this restaurant for some years now, and always noticed it being close to full with a lovely ambiance!! Decided finally to give it a try with some friends... we had a BLAST!
Small, delightful place; tables stacked not too far, not too close.... gives u a sense of being immersed in this warm, social ambiance with very friendly and 'chatty' waitresses!!
Had the cod with chorizo slices which was not bad at all (i expected a bit more chorizo for accentuated flavors!). The figs dessert was a very nice surprise and quite tasty!
All in all, a very pleasant evening with good food in a casual atmosphere!!
