Having just got a trip advisor account I've been going through some restaurants I've been to in the last year to give reviews (especially the good ones!) Last year in June I decided to come to Paris and was recommended this restaurant! At first I...More

Nice restaurant, very friendly service, the food lovely, we had the veal brains, which you must try, bit disappointed on the wine as both were very apple tasting, but all in all, would definitely return.

My girlfriend and I have been wanting to eat at Clown Bar since last summer. Clearly, this place is on the tourist map because it's nearly impossible to get a reservation in the summer. On one rainy winter evening we got a table around opening...More

I am so glad this was recommended to us by family who were taken by locals here before. I love their very fresh and new menu that I have never seen else where and so delicious at that. The price is right as well. Every...More

Experience has taught me to avoid the hype on new restaurants until the serious reviews come out. Good word of mouth can be created by skilled PR. (In the U.S., even before the restaurant opens, complete with photos of “delicious” dishes which will be served.)...More

I enjoyed my dinner at Clown Bar very much. I came alone and did not make any reservation so was seated at the bar which was fine. However, if you're a couple or group, you must make a reservation. The food was extremely delicious. The...More

The beautiful Belle Epoque space is (tastefully) decorated with clowns. The menu has been revived by Sota Atsumi’s intriguing small plates. Wines are heavily natural, with good options by the glass as well as the bottle. Don’t expect to get a table without calling a...More

If you enjoy beeing ignored, than this is your place. Could have been so cool but the most arrogant and worst service ever.

Absolutely amazing dinner with perfectly paired wine! From the appetzizers (tempura sardines and oysters) entrees ( duck/foie gras, pigeon) to dessert, we were in absolute heaven! The restaurant was completely booked but fortunately it wasn't uncomfortably cold to eat on the terrace which had heaters....More

I was in Paris for about three days and had two of my meals here. Veal brains were perfectly prepared. The raw scallop dish... a different take on Coquille St Jacque was sublime. Perhaps one of the most unique dishes I have tried in a...More

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
