Expert review of Paris Bar

This bustling bistro has history and art and is a good place for West Berlin people watching.

Sit shoulder-to-shoulder with musicians, politicians, artists and long-term regulars in this busy French bistro. You may even find yourself sitting right next to a celebrity.

Food and drink: 

The appeal of this bar is not really the food, but it still serves decent French bistro dishes such as coq au vin, lamb chops, steak frites and oysters. An extensive wine list helps keep the atmosphere lively.

Ambience: 

The bistro is usually crowded and tables are crammed together. The atmosphere is good, though, with rowdy regulars, artists, musicians and celebrities often present - it is a legendary spot, which still evokes an old West Berlin feel. The interiors have an old salon charm with art covering every inch of the walls.

Service: 

Slow and sometimes snooty. Reservations are highly recommended, especially at weekends..

Location: 

Paris Bar is located on the historic Kantstraße in Charlottenburg, close to the Theater des Westens.

Price advice: 

It's not the cheapest place to eat but far from the most expensive either. A main will cost between 12-25 euros.
