Everybody, and I mean virtually everybody of the who is who list in France and the world, visited this "bijou" by Jean-François! Carla Bruni, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Uma Thurman and many more...

A not to be missed restaurant in Paris. I advice that you reserve and arrive on time, as the place fills up quickly and turns over even quicker. This is a typical French restaurant with a wide variety of classic French dishes. I opted to start with the snail that were cooked in a garlic butter sauce. Biggest escargots I've... More

Been to this restaurant a few times over the years. I've been either on my own during a weekday or with French friends. This place used to be one of my favourite restaurants in the world! The pepper steak is to die for. I always got served a huge piece of filet steak (around 500g) for around 36 euro. I... More

The concept of this place is cool, they make large dishes in the kitchen and offer people from those. The appetizers are super good, but for a steakhouse I thought the main fillet was average and overcooked relative to my request. I had difficultly explaining medium rare, so requested rare but got a medium to well done piece. You will... More

And above all, you begin by a glance at home made desserts such the paris-brest, the one I recommend. I got as starters some wild mushrooms, followed by an andouillette and then this fabulous dessert. The wine list is well targeted. A typical Parisian bistrot you must try!

Everything has already been said about this bistro. Les Gourmets des Ternes is exactly what it wants to be. The classical French bistro cuisine, but with ingredients that are quite a bit better than the average. Inside little has changed since a long time. The portions are ample (perhaps a bit too ample...), The wine advice excellent and the atmosphere... More

Jean Francoise is the dynamic owner of this interesting French Bistro. The steak here is the best in Paris ...I kid you not. It is the best. Great desserts as well. Get here early as this restaurant fills up and does not take reservations. Be prepared for a shock when the bill arrives ...always a surprise on the high side!

Go here for one of the best steaks to be experienced in France. Bring lots of appetite to share the starters prior to the piece de boeuf; don't miss out on the classic deserts. Order a house wine. You'll find a perfect blend of locals, visitors and some well known people here.

I first visited this restaurant in 1993 and try to come there as I find myself in Paris for any given occasion, business or leisure. I'm totally disappointed with the restaurant I saw last time (Saturday, 29 October 2016). First of all the new or newly initiated "boss" trying to force us to sit outside ( we're traveling with our... More
