Our experience at Bistrotters exceeded all expectations! Having read the Tripadvisor reviews, we were hoping for a good meal, but what we experienced was simply perfection. We were warmly greeted by Francois, who's youthful energy and enthusiasm set the tone for the whole evening. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, and the menu written on a large blackboard, has just the right amount of selections. Two of us ordered the foie gras and it was simply the best we had ever tasted. One of us had the salmon tartare which was delicious, and I had the vegetable concoction , also delicious, full of different flavors. The pork belly main dish was melt in your mouth good, the fillet steak tender and cooked to perfection. We ordered a bottle of very good red wine, suggested by Francois, which we all enjoyed. With dessert we were offered a very good Spanish dessert wine. I personally refrained from licking my plate after devouring the chocolate cake, but it was not easy! As for the service, although there was a large group of 15 people being served, we were well taken care of. Bread and water and drinks orders were brought out right away and starters served very quickly. Francois seemed to be attentive to all the tables, answering questions and translating the menu where necessary.
A note on getting to Bistrotters from the Plaisance metro station. There are two exits. One takes you to the street opposite the second exit. You need to cross the main street, and then go left to Rue Decres, then turn right on that street and walk about one minute to Bistrotters. The second which we did not see takes you almost to Rue Decres.
Quite a few people were turned away as the restaurant was full, so reservations are a must.
