Nice and original food. Service is good, and price not too high (for Paris standard). We got there running away from touristic places and we had a very pleasant evening. Starters are not too big, so do not hesitate in asking for the full menu!

Le Tournebièvre, modest in appearance yet rich in fine cuisine and Parisian ambiance, is well worth a detour to experience the inventive and flavorful cooking of chef Christian Gailliard. It is situated in the 5th arr. on quai de la Tournelle facing Ile St. Louis. We came late after a concert at Notre Dame and, despite the fact there were... More

I highly recommend this restaurant. The food, wine list and service was exceptional. We were so impressed by everything. When we arrived we were welcomed as if we were family or close friends. The menu, though not extensive, had something for all tastes. For appetizers I ordered the poached egg with foie gras and black pudding (superb) and my daughter... More

We had such a great meal and nice time here four years ago we had to go back. We were not disappointed. Cozy and unassuming place, with fantastic location right across the Seine from Notre Dame. The food was excellent. On a Tuesday night, the place was quiet, but otherwise you will need to reserve ahead. Highly recommended.

We ate at Le Tournebievre twice for dinner, the first time on the recommendation of the owner of our vacation rental, the second because we had such a lovely time the first time! The food is very good - especially the Duck Confit - the vin rose was excellent, and the welcoming atmosphere and service better than anywhere else in... More

We loved this restaurant from the moment we walked in and were warmly greeted by Leticia, the hostess. The atmosphere was cozy and charming but the food was even better. We (all five) loved every dish and loved that it was served with a smile. We will definitely return on our next trip to Paris!

Last week I and four friends had the pleasure of dining at Le Tournebievre, on the West Bank in view of Notre Dame, and the experience was delightful. The restaurant is small and intimate, run by Chef Christian, his mother, and hostess Leticia, who are nothing but charming. Each stopped by our table, though the place was full at dinnertime,...

Description
On the banks of the Seine, moments from Paris' Ile de la Cite and within easy reach of Paris' most celebrated landmarks is Le Tournebièvre restaurant . The first thing that will undoubtedly strike you about the restaurant (formerly Le Rencard Gourmand) is the breathtaking view across the river. But quite apart from the fairytale setting, Le Tournebièvre is special in its own right. Its classic French bistro cuisine is hugely popular with locals so it provides a real Parisian experience, quite apart from the usual tourist-version of Parisian dining. The simple bistro interior is accompanied, in the summer months, with pavement dining under a wide, shady awning. The traditional French menu is created using fine, seasonal ingredients, with a wide choice for all tastes. And, sacre bleu, the service at Le Tournebièvre is both professional and genuinely friendly.
