Recently ate here whilst looking for somewhere typically French to eat which was harder than I imagined in Paris. Food here was lovely & the service was also very good

A friend recommended this cozy little restaurant and I am so happy we went. The service was pleasant and the food and wine were wonderful. The baked Camembert and scallops were the highlights for me!

I ate here twice in the last 2 months. Both times the food was really good and fresh and the atmosphere very cozy. Only the first time the waitress or manager was very rude with the rest of the staff which made us feel quite uncomfortable. The second time though there was a very beautiful new waitress who made our... More

Visited on a busy Friday evening with all tables taken. Tables are close to each other so easy to overhear what neighbors are talking about, if you speak French :-). No English menu, which isn’t a problem for us, but if you’re used to translated menu’s you’ll need some help. The food is great. We had the Terrine de Lapin... More

My wife and I came across this cute restaurant looking for something to eat at Bastille district. The place looks great and french-styled and when we got inside we were overwhelmed by a fantastic meat smell! Unfortunately we had to wait for more than 15 minutes before someone asks us what we wanted. Then - as we decided to wait... More

Atmosphere, good food, a French brasserie experience. We enjoyed it thoroughly - especially since they happened to play "our song" in the background music (which was well selected, and jsut at the right unobtrusive volume). The dozen escargot were sublime as was wife's onion soup. The lab chops were done to a tee accompanied by a superb puree. Wife's triple... More

We dithered outside this restaurant on the rue de Charonne, it was our final night in Paris and we'd eaten at some of the other places along the street and just couldn't decide what to do. We were spotted by a couple of locals who persuaded us that we should give the place a try. On balance they were correct,... More

My husband and I stumbled across this bistro looking for another restaurant and the food everyone was eating at lunch looked so good that we gave up on the other place and sat down. We were not disappointed. The beef I had was some of the best I have eaten in Paris and it was cooked perfectly, they had an... More

Excellent service and food. English speaking staff and menus and great atmosphere. Abit pricey but recommended for a special night out.

Staying in Bastille / Oberkampf

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Republique, skateboarders practice their tricks while others chill out at the square. If you’re looking for late-night revelry, this is your neighbourhood.
