The food here is really really good!!! The escargot was perfect, the bone marrow decadent, the sausage was meaty and hearty, the ratatouille flavorful and homey and the duck confit is to die for. Seriously. Everything was delicious but the duck confit? Next level. Everyone...More

We came here after reading good trip advisor reviews. However, we were very disappointed. We spent a lot of money here and didn't really enjoy the food at all. All of the food was below average standard, and the dessert tasted like a microwaved Marks...More

We first came to the Bistrot for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Though breakfast is quite limited - pastries, coffee and juices - we loved the setting - original Art Nouveau - and the barman was very friendly and accommodating. He also played great music,...More

Paris has lots of recommended turn of the century bistrots, but this one is off the beaten track and has a more authentic air. (It isn't, as some reviews suggest, Art Deco.) The walls are decorated with the sinewy designs of art nouveau, with mirrors...More

Quirky faded art deco cafe, this makes me feel like home. Great food, friendly service, the tables are packed tight as expected in Paris.

It’s only too easy to understand why this 1902 art nouveau café-bistro is such a popular haunt for locals and those tourists lucky enough to discover its superb and surprisingly affordable cuisine, served all day by attentive waiting staff beneath ornately decorated ceilings and architraves....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
