I returned to this wonderful Bistro last night for the third time on this trip. The restaurant always looked bustling both at lunch and dinner with what looked like a local crowd, not tourists. This is not a tourist area but this place is worth...More

Good food, friendly service and cool ambiance. Surely to try again for both drinks and dinner. Our server was a super nice black middle age woman with a great sense of humour and caring attitude.

We were two to eat here. The service was very good. My partner and I chose the same meal. She enjoyed hers, and I found my meat much too tough. In general, not a restaurant that left me with a desire to return.

Belleville / Pere Lachaise
At the eastern edge of Paris lies Belleville / Père
Lachaise, an understated wonderland of local
treasures. Alongside the world-famous cemetery,
family-owned delicatessens and cafés nestle between
local stores and establishments. The richness of the
population here has created a little Chinatown of
Asian restaurants, and the area comes to life at night
by a funky underground scene. Façades change from one
