Description: We own a charming and authentic bistro from 1900 and we simply offer fresh products from "le marche" that our Chef Erwan le Gahinet puts together to create very tasty French cuisine. French and world cuisine because we litterally are globe trotters of bistros. We travel for food and we bring back authentic flavours from around the globe. We do everything to make you feel at home and very welcome in our restaurant. Only one saying guides us : the pleasure to please! We are opened everyday for lunch and dinner. See you soon at BISTROTTERS!

Took my wife here for our belated Valentines dinner. Beautiful small restaurant. The waiter translated the whole menu into English for me. The fois gras was lovely as was the lamb. I also loved how my chocolate fondant wobbled when I gently touched it with my spoon. Really impressed with the restaurant, the food and the staff.

We booked a table in Bistrotters after checking out the tripadvisor reviews and it was worth the visit.
The front of house was so friendly, helping us translate the menu from french to english and suggesting wines that match the food.
The food was absolutely delicious, salmon tartare & pate for starters and lamb and beef for main course.
The pudding was heavenly, lemon tart & brioche with caramel sauce, yummy.
Had a lovely evening in Bistrotters, you can tell they care about their food, reputation and customers.
Will be back next time we are in paris.

As first time visitors to Paris we didn't have a clue where to visit so took a chance on this little restaurant based on the reviews here on trip advisor. We weren't disappointed. We'd recommend booking ahead as it got busy whilst we were there and that was on a week night. The restaurant offers a small but varied menu of French cuisine that was cooked to perfection. Both my husband and I were delighted with our meals (and each others!) and the desserts are to die for! The staff couldn't have been more helpful and by far the best service we have experienced during our stay here. The menu is in French on a black board but the waiter went to huge efforts to translate and explain each item. Overall an absolute must.

I'm so glad we did our research before our trip to Paris & booked this little bistro ahead of time. We (6 friends on a 40th birthday trip) went to dinner here on the night we arrived. There were a couple of waiters one of which we later found out was the young 25 yr old owner Francois Gallice. He was very friendly, welcoming & informative. The ambiance was great as the restaurant is quite small and was nicely busy.

The food was so delicious and served with style. We had three courses, and went with a wine which was recommended. We loved it all and wanted to come back!
Bistrotters offers good value, it's great to find a restaurant which is excellent and doesn't over charge you. It deserves the great ratings it's getting. We will be back the next time we're in Paris!

After finding this restaurant through tripAdvisor I was really looking forward to eating here and it did not disappoint. The food was excellent the service fantastic and friendly and the restaurant itself was quaint and relaxing. I couldn't fault this restaurant on anything and the waiter was fantastically accommodating. I would recommend this to anybody who wants a beautiful meal and a relaxed evening. never really write reviews but this was too good not too. Advice I would give would be familiarise yourself with the location via street view first. The only thing i wish is that this restaurant was closer to my home so i could visit more. Enjoy!
