First let me say that we had one of the very best meals I've eaten six years ago here, and our recent trip to France it was a place I wanted to go back to. The food was not quite as amazing, but quite good anyway. The main course of the prix fixe dinner was cabillaud, a North Atlantic fish related to the cod. It was rather bland, but nicely accompanied by the best mashed potatoes (!!!) I've ever had, prepared with olive oil, lemons and a couple of other things I couldn't identify. The meal included a potage of cauliflower festooned with bacon and herbs, a cheese course that included an apple confit and a panna cotta. The wine was suggested by the host--Les Papilles startd out as a wine bar and stores, and is famous for its cellar: it charges a corking fee of 7 euros (I think) plus the retail cost of the wine.
We were two couples, and half way through one of the men turned ghastly ill (turned out to be a kidney stone.) He left precipitously, which solicited much concern from the wait staff and an adjustment downward of the 34 euro charged for his meal. Didn't expect that, but it was appreciated.
Note: when we were there in 2008, we were the only Anglophones in the place, but this time (a Thursday night) at least half the diners were not French. Don't know what this means.
Be sure to reserve a day or two in advance and remember to confirm the morning of your reservation. There are two sittings, 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m., if I remember correctly.
