We absolutely loved this little restaurant. It was truly an experience and we spent close to four hours there. We went with my niece, who lives in Paris with her French boyfriend, so this made it easy for us to just have them explain the menu to us and do the ordering too. We had the seven course meal which was €55 per person. This was not a "tasting" menu as all portions were quite large. The salmon tartare was incredible, as were the beans in butter sauce topped with lardon and poached sea bass. The soup was to die for as were the two desserts. The wine list is huge. I did not find the price to be high due to the quality and amount of food we had. Service was also impeccable and know they would help out the non-French speaking patrons. We will not forget this meal.

Le Villaret is a beautiful Parisian Bistro located on a quiet yet albeit iffy part of the 11th arrondissment. The food was delicious, although the menu was quite difficult to understand and the price was steep. The bill came to around 60 euros a head, and so needless to say it is not somewhere you could go on a regular basis.

There is a 6 course tasting menu which costs 50 euros a head. This included such things as Cauliflower Soup (sounds uninteresting but was very good). The seabass was also worthy of note.

I suspect that this restaurant is going to gain a great many accolades in time to come and I'm happy that I caught it before it rises to fame, and the prices undoubtedly rise too.

Towards the end the waiter brought round a trolley laden with intricate desserts. This allowed us to pick what we fancied. A nice way to end the meal I must say.

Strongly recommeded!
We had a fantastic lunch. Modern French cuisine when best. Close to fine dining, but not over complicated. Classy but still relaxed. Best meal this time in Paris.
Prise correspond to quality.

While not easy to find, this restaurant is worth it! The food is exceptionally fresh, the menu has interesting choices, and the cheese selection is amazing! Everyone is friendly and welcoming.

Le Villaret is trying to be creative on a budget -- a difficult task. Our food was pleasant, interesting, and well prepared. The room is OK. I doubt that it was worth 56 Euros per person.
