Bistrot Paul Bert

I have heard a lot about Bistrot Paul Bert as many’s favorites for traditional french food. There’s good reason for that. The menu changes seasonally and it’s a carnivore’s paradise (including yours truly) including hure de cochon, côte de porc, entrecôte, steak aux poivres among others. 

The restaurant is rather rustic looking, a traditional French bistrot to be honest with mirrored walls, tiled floors, and mobile chalkboard menus.  The tables are quite close to each other (as they are in Paris) and the menu is heavy on the meat. They have a lot of fish too, and they were equally as good. 


Ceviche de Cabillaud

Oeufs durs à la Mayonnaise de Truffe Noire


Pot-au-feu et ses légumes –  full of tender beef, potatoes, turnips, leeks, carrots, and even a fist-sized piece of marrow

This crowded and very popular place has become one of my favorite bistros in Paris as they serve an excellent entrecôte (served only bleue or saignante – as it should be but definitely not for the faint of heart) and frites

Desserts (if you still have room!)

Sorbets faits maison (ananas – pineapple, citron – lemon, cassis)

Soufflé au Grand Marnier

A must-come even if you’re in Paris for 72 hours. It demonstrates traditional French cuisine done very well and will make you visit the East of Paris.

Two helpful suggestions: 1. Come with a big appetite, 2. Reservations strongly advised
