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!

The food here is really excellent and if you are lucky enough to get a reservation it is worth trying!!! The reviews are true. The food is excellent, the price is affordable, the waitors are attentive and the ambiance is nice. A real hidden gem!

“The quality performance rolls on”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

Just over a year on we revisited Bistrotters, having eaten there twice in 2013.

The food was as excellent as I remember it from perviously and the service was attentive; my only observation was that I did not feel as though it was quite as "personal" although this did not impair our enjoyment of the overall dinner.....the acid test being that we would certainly go back again.

It is quite rightly a very popular restaurant with only a limited number of covers so booking is essential; if you enjoy a top class gastronomic experience, then this is the place for you & I have struggled to find anything that can compete with it in Paris!!!

“Flawless”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

If you're lucky enough to get a reservation (the restaurant only has around eight tables), you'll be in for one of the best dining experiences you'll find anywhere in Paris. Or anywhere else for that matter!

From the service to the presentation of the perfectly prepared courses, this unassuming bistro in a quiet residential neighborhood of Paris isn't where you'd expect to find one of the cities best restaurants.

Each of our group of four ordered a different starter, main and dessert so we were able to taste just about everything on the menu. While the menu does change, the vegetable tart, foie gras, crispy pork belly and the french toast brioche dessert were simply amazing.

For a restaurant of this caliber, the prices were more than reasonable. 3 course meal for four people including two bottles of wine was around 250 euros. We spent almost twice this amount at a couple of other restaurants in Paris and they weren't even close to the experience we had at Bistrotters. . ,

“Superbe. ”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

I was invited here with a group of business associates from the US and we truly loved it. Stunningly presented food, superb tastes. Really back to the roots of Parisian brasserie traditions while maintaining an innovative touch. Independent but exquisite wine producers topped the experience. Will bring our visitors here.

“Outstanding meal in Paris.”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

We just returned to US after spending 3 weeks in France. While we ate a LOT of excellent meals, Bistrotters was hands down our favorite. The 5 of us collectively ordered virtually every item on the menu and I think I sampled at least a bite of each dish. I could go back and order any combination of the dishes they prepared and be very happy. Also, the price was VERY reasonable, particularly given the quality and that it is in Paris. Definitely make a reservation. They book 12 days in advance and the night we were there numerous people were turned away.
