A restaurant is only as good as its second visit. If a restaurant really impressed you, try a second time. If it is as good as the first time, you know it's really a good restaurant. Well, the Jannissaire in Paris is one of those restaurants. Every time you visit the Jannissaire, it's even better than the last time. The... More

I reserved it on line from the restaurant web sight, it worked fine. The restaurant is placed by the promenade plantae walking path. The place is clean, nice decorated, with swift service. Food was very good, I recommend starter assiette de meze. Prices are reasonable.

We discovered this restaurant by accident as we we're walking the "promenade plantée", a long, green and beautiful path on an old railway between Bastille and the Porte de Vincennes. It's far from the centre and also from the restaurants where tourists use to go. It's easy to reach by metro (metrostation Daumesnil or Montgallet) and it's worth the trip.... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
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 their homes.
