We ate here 5 years ago and enjoyed it tremendously, so we decided to try it again. Still great!!!! The food is excellent, the service is friendly and professional, and prices are reasonable. Make sure you try the tomato-aubergine-squash Millefeuille, it’s exquisite!!! Highly recommended.

Stuck for somewhere to eat and this restaurant accommodated us and our 2 kids (7&9), What luck! Every mouthful was outstanding. The foie to start was generous and perfectly smooth. The duck was a joy. Kids menus were well beyond chicken nuggets with excellent duck...or fish options. The place is quite posh but not formal. There were a surprising amount of kids there when we were there so it seems to be a local popular family spot. I couldn’t fault it and it may be my meal of the year!More

When we arrived the Bistro was empty so we were a bit sceptical. But the food and service were amazing. By the time we finished our dinner the whole Bistro was full. We went for the Special menu which had some amazing items. Good spot...for dinner in ParisMore

This warm, welcoming restaurant was ten minutes walk from our hotel in the Marais and well worth visiting. The two servers were both busy, efficient and friendly, looking after a full restaurant of diners on a Monday evening in March. That alone impressed us. The...menu was well priced and we enjoyed both the Salmon Tataki, which was not typically French, and the Confit de Canard, which was. A good example of a French restaurant moving with the times while keeping the best of traditional French cuisine. The puddings were great too! This was clearly a neighbourhood restaurant, which relied on locals coming back rather than a stream of tourists who might never return. These tourists, however, will be returning. It was a lovely meal.More

After having booked several weeks in advance the restaurant then cancelled my reservation on the day of the reservation with no reason given. Disappointing.

My wife and I, as foodies, have been routinely coming to Paris for over 30 years and have dined at the predecessor to and Bistrot d l'Oulette (same owner) since the latter's inception. We had the pleasure of visiting them again in December 2021 and...January 2022. This quiet Marais venue provides a breath of calm in the turbulence of daily Paris life (especially at lunch time). The food was excellent, service impeccable and prices quite reasonable. Our Dec. meal included the saumon mi cuit and salade verte for entres followed by hearty plats of confit de canard and cassoulet maison - perfect for a cold winter day. The Jan. visit was a show stopper with fois gras soup including mushrooms. We could easily consume this daily. The other delights were their scallops in a safran sauce with mushroom risotto and an amazing cuisse de pintard with hen braised in a thick red wine and mushroom sauce with potatoes. The guinea fowl was tender, juicy and remarkable. I continue to dream of this meal. Add savory deserts and excellent, easily affordable wines to the mix for a perfect feast. Reservations are a must at night and advised at lunch. This Marais gem is truly worthy of a visit. Bon appetit!More

Delicate top-of-the-range cuisine, with good wines in an intimate "Parisian bistro" atmosphere. We were a group of 12 people and we had a very fine evening. I recommend: you will have a very good experience.
