4.4

The place to come for a hearty Parisian bistro experience.

For many people the Paul Bert pretty much sums up what a bistro is all about: a classic interior of tiled floor, wooden chairs, a relaxed atmosphere and satisfying traditional food.

Food and drink

The emphasis here is on simply prepared favourites and fine-quality ingredients, rather than innovation, perhaps a côte de boeuf for two served in jitteringly rare slices with chunky peasant chips, or succulent roast pigeon. For dessert the Paris-Brest is renowned.

Ambience

It can feel a bit like an insider address where everyone seems to know each other, but don't let this put you off . This is the sort of place where you find yourself chatting to your neighbours, if only to comment on the mms and ahs of satisfaction.

Service

Casual but rather brusque when stretched.

Location

On a foodie street east of the Bastille.

Price advice

The three-course menu-carte costs 34 euros, with a 16.50 euro formule for weekday lunch.

Branches

The same team also own the Ecailler du Bistrot next door, which specialises in fish.
