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.
