The food here was incredible. The perfect place to dine for authentic French food at affordable prices. The staff were very friendly too. My husband and I were visiting from Australia and will definitely eat here again next time we visit Paris.

Found this restaurant from a rather old list of "best restaurants in Paris", but decided to take a chance that is was still good. We made a reservation for 7:00 because later slots were taken on this Tuesday night. So, be advised, the place is...More

I absolutely loved this place. It is small, but the service was amazing. I had the fixed priced menu with a small upcharge for escargot. The pre-dinner cocktail (something with wine and plum liquor) was the perfect start to the meal. The escargot was wonderful....More

The stress started the minute we walked in... it was heaving, with no place to stand and wait for a table - a giant coat rack is right in front of the door which meant every time someone left, we were pushed and prodded as...More

The experience was pleasant enough. Enjoyed the welcome. It was warm and friendly. Loved the venison terrine. And the gherkin bucket. Followed by the enormous pot of Coq Au Vin, which can be shared by two people. My sister ordered the venison steak. Both were...More

A somewhat small restaurant, which seems larger when you're in it because it has mirrors on both side walls. They feature game in season, grouse when we were there. Due to our hunger, we wanted something more substantial, so ordered veal. Very well prepared, and...More

This was not the best food we ate in Paris (close to, but not quite) but it was the best dining experience there. It was one of the all around best dinners out we've ever had. When I called to make reservations (a must) I...More

This little, rustic and modest restaurant is an experience far beyond anything else i have had in Paris. This is a well kept secret, or may be not. The place was packed with guests. But despite the amount of guests we got top service from...More

We went to A la Biche au Bois on our last night in Paris. It's one of our favorite places and we go there every trip. It specializes in game (when it is in season). We like game, but there are so many other reasons...More

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy
Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois
de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make
