Good quality food, but more of a bar than a restaurant. Nice atmosphere, but on a busy Thursday evening only one waitress was serving around 12 tables, so long waiting times.

It's a bit of organized chaos at Le 138, what with all the bric-à-brac décor and atmosphere. But as a place to hang out at for a drink or coffee, it's a very cool bar! They have a longer happy hour than most places in...More

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy
Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois
de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make
