This nice little restaurant only just opened in December, not far from the Canal Saint Martin. Very good value lunch menu, 2 courses for 12 euro or three for 14.50 euro. In the evening they have à la carte with starters for 8-12 euro and main courses for 12-18 euro. You can get French classics […]
Newly opened wine bar and bistro in a renovated traditional café. Original tables made from old champagne “pupitres”. Very good value menu with starter, main course and dessert from 21 euro. I had an excellent salad with crayfish to start with followed by a perfectly grilled “bavette” (steak) with potato gratin. The fish was also […]
There are six L’Ecluse wine bars in Paris, and that it is a “chain”, albeit small, can by some be seen as a negative. But in this case they are ambitious and focused, without being complicated or sophisticated. They also have excellent opening hours, which can be particularly good for overseas visitors who are not […]
This is a very nice wine bar/restaurant on the already restaurant dense rue Leopold Belland in the 2nd, just a stone’s throw from the market street rue Montorgueil. In summer time they have a big and calm ‘terrasse’. The menu is short but with a good selection of typical wine bar food made from fresh […]
Very pleasant. Exceptional wine list, cool jazz, mix of English club atmosphere and Italian design (owner is ex-interior designer). Outstanding selection of Rhone and southern France. Small things to eat. Also a small shop where you can buy to bring home even late at night! Say hello to Gerard from us!
A nice wine bar and wine shop in the centre of the Quartier Latin (Latin Quarter). It just opened in February (2005). Nicely decorated with a dominant red that contrasts with the old wooden beams. The choice at lunch is “today’s special” (served hot – all other dishes are served cold) (12€) and salads (8€), […]
Unpretentious and nice – if you happen to be close to Saint-Sulpice and Bon Marché. Try their crème brûlée au Roquefort for a starter… Lunch menu for 15-18 euro.
For almost ten years Jean-Guy Loustau’s basque restaurant has maintained it’s position as one of Paris’s most popular wine restaurants. Start with a sweet Jurançon for aperitif and try a full bodied Madiran or Irouléguy – a perfect match with the tasty food. Au Bascou, 38, rue Réaumur, 75002 Paris, ph. 01 42 72 69 […]
Enjoy a good lunch in a relaxed atmosphere (makes a change from the boulevard outside) upstairs in one of Paris’ biggest wine shops, and you’ll have a view over their enormous assortment of spirits. You can also just drop in for a glass of wine in the wine bar, until 8 PM. If you don’t […]
