“cozy spot with comfort food”
Reviewed December 28, 2011

I went with friends who have been coming here with their family for many years. They introduced me to a side dish called aligot. This cheesy potato concoction is worth every one of the millions of calories it contains.

Service was fine, attentive but not intrusive. We had a house red which worked well with duck and other entrees.

Worth a visit, I'll go again.

“Nice Brunch!”
Reviewed December 5, 2011

The location on Rue Pierre Lescot makes this a strategic place to people watch where pedestrian traffic is constant. Nice flexible terrace for indoor/outdoor usage during varying winter/summer conditions.

However on this cold rainy day, we were seated upstairs at the salon which feels very cosy and comfortable, with much more privacy. The service was friendly and entertaining. Patrons have the option of choosing between 4 types of brunch: Suédois, Anglais, Français and Végétarian. Everything comes with bread, butter, jam, juice, cold drinks, tea/coffee; we were expecting a free flow of bread but didn't materialise after the first round. The main brunch dishes were deliciously unique and satisfactory in their own way, but improvements need to be made as to the side dishes offered.

Overall, a very positive and enjoyable brunch at 19 Euros per person!

“Excellent French food in a typical French setting”
Reviewed May 9, 2011

Le Pere Fouettard serves excellent, typical French food in a typical French setting - meaning you'll be eating on miniature tables, squeezed between another hundred customers and served by waiters who're always in a rush. However the French specialities it serves are extremely tasty and well worth the prices.

Reviewed September 2, 2010

the decoration is very nice, typical of a french bistrot. but the waiters are worse than unfriendly and the food is really expensive for what it is : just average.
