I first visited Paris a few times more than 50 years ago and my wife and I were there for our honeymoon 28 years ago. We recently returned and were not happy about the incredible number of visitors and the lack of small bistros and...More

So glad we found this little bar. It's so charming. It's a family own business and they really shouldn't change a thing. We had such a fantastic time here and have talked about it over and over. We visited on the start of our evening...More

We went here after l’Orangerie and it was nice to get out of tourist-land. This is like an American diner.

Michelle is one of the nicest person I've never imagine still existed (and his family). The place proudly survived to the gentrification of the area, and serves amazing food in a twenty century cozy atmosphere. From breakfast to tea or aperitif to lunch a must,...More

Loved this little gem. Most tourists I think would not be interested, but was taken by a Parisian who told me it was the place all the hotel workers eat. He wrote a cheque for lunch. Where does that happen anymore?

Just steps from the Hotel Meurice and Place Vendome, Au Petit Bar is an unspoiled gem of a place where a real Mom and Pop (or more accurately Grandpere and Grandmere) and their son and other family members work to give visitors simple, home-cooked meals...More

Authentic luncheonette one street behind the main tourist route leading to the Louvre. We started with two appetizers - the sausage, and a salade des tomates. We had the daily special which was sliced roti de bouef with frites maison. We took the 1/2 litre...More

Okay, maybe not the fluffiest EVER, but if you want to eat what and where the locals are eating, you can't go wrong with with Au Petit Bar. In a section of town where perhaps more English is heard than French, we loved our delightful...More

Went in for a quick breakfast and felt like we went back before franchises took over everything. Nice to see a family run place doing well.

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops
