“Wonderful neighborhood restaurant with rare good service in Paris”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

The food and service at Le Volant was amazing. We walked in around 21:00 tonight and got a table for 2 immediately, despite there being a line at the bar and the restaurant being full otherwise. The service surprised us because they were friendly, gave us menus and pointed out the English menu to my non-French fluent self, then brought us water. My French friend was in shock at the good service haha.

The food was very tasty and filling. I only had a main, but was very full. All mains come with 3 side dishes for the table to share: rice pilaf, mashed potatoes and some really delicious polenta, which was the best I've ever had.

We wanted to come again on Sunday night for dinner, but unfortunately they are closed!

“A Gem!”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

It is very hard to find sweetbreads (ris de veau) but Le Volant has them and they're great. We found this restaurant whilst walking about an unassuming neighborhood and were very pleasantly surprised to find out how really good it was. Excellent service, too. I am pleased to see it has so many good reviews but fear you will take the last remaining table before I get there. :-)
