The food was just average (the sigara börek i make better one's at home). The interior is nice and the staff friendly. It's a bit far off east by foot when in the centre of Paris.

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...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....More

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
