I was somewhat apprehensive because unlike many other Paris restaurants, reservations must be made by phone, not by email. Still, this method has worked for decades and worked well for us. As tourists we were impressed with the number of French speaking guests. English menus were available. The food was spectacular. I especially enjoyed the peppers stuffed with salt cod.... More

Le Villaret is easy to walk by on a street full of restaurants, but stop to look at the reviews and awards placed modestly in the window. Better yet, eat there! They go well beyond the bistro standards with creative dishes using excellent ingredients, carefully prepared, courteously served and reasonably priced. They made us foreign visitors feel totally welcome. Very... More

Granted, Jim and I are not foodies. Still, we do one splurge per city visited. Le Villaret was our Paris splurge. This was quite the best meal we have had in years. From the amuse bouche, a custardy mushroom dish, to our dessert, we enjoyed every taste and just as importantly, every moment there. The proprietor was warm, knowedgable and... More

We got a last minute booking for late on a Saturday evening (22.00). We were squeezed onto a small table very close to other diners but our doubts were soon removed by the attention of the staff. We were quickly served drinks, always a good sign, and the menu was explained including those items which were no longer available. The... More

We arrived without reservation and immediately made welcome. We were talked through the menu and a meat course (veal sweetbreads) which we were not too enthusiastic about was willingly substituted. Service was impeccable, the food and presentation was outstanding. A comprehensive wine list completed the evening. Thank you for an excellent last night in Paris. We will certainly return on...

An old haunt for me but one that has always had quality as a top priority. The cuisine has changed as tastes change and the classic cream and butter french cuisine has made way for a much lighter variant these days with terrific results. Everything is prepared with great care in a tiny kitchen. I had superb partridge with chestnuts... More

We were welcomed even though we had no reservation. The room was tastefully modern and both the host and wait staff warm and helpful. My enjoyed the lobster menu , while I cannibalized a wild duck with figs.

The food was superb, as was the wine and service. We were there on a fairly busy evening, the restaurant was half full, yet the staff remained calm and friendly, and the food came on time.
