Tours and Tickets
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

Why not? Because there's so much better!
Jul 2016 • Business
I was here with a colleague for an evening meal and, yes, I should have known better than to go anywhere near Bastille but that's where we were.

The restaurant made a good first impression and, as the front was fully open, we could see what other people were eating. It is a cramped restaurant but this is very typical for Paris. The waitress was friendly enough, with good English and also tolerated my bad French with good grace. Unfortunately that was as good as it got.

We had the "menu du soir", which seemed good value at 17€. We chose herrings (oversalted and full of bones), chevre chaud (no dressing on the salad and very average), chicken brochette (adequate), sole (burnt gratin dauphinois and overly creamy sauce on overcooked fish), fruit salad (no adventure) and pear with chocolate sauce (very hard, uncooked pear and hardly any chocolate). I also had a glass of the house white wine, which was ok but nothing to write home about.

I nearly gave it three stars based on value for money but considering how lazy the dessert courses were, I'm not feeling that generous. The simple fact is there are much better restaurants in Paris, even in that price bracket. I really recommend you try to find one of them!

Very good food, best price
Jan 2016 • Couples
We were looking for a nice entrecote\ steak, every restaurant is so expensive in Paris!The why not restaurant has a very good athmosphere and people are nice and friendly. Food is very good and the price is even better..so i think you should give it a try...even then...taxes in Paris are separate from the initial pricing so, at the end prepare to pay a bit more than the menu...( we paid 50e for 2persons)
Congratulations to the restaurant, nice place to go in Paris if you like to eat well and you are not rich..

We had lunch here, off season so not so busy. Decent restaurant, nice food. We had the menu, which was fine. The dorade was really good. Also the small bottle of wine was nice.

Nice French cuisine food, 3 course meal for 22 euro was worth every penny. Skip the house wine. Friendly staff and I was even rewarded whiskey for free. 😄

good meal and good price
Sep 2015 • Friends
Located close to Bastille in a street full of pubs, bars and some restaurants. Menu is limited, but good options of meat, pasta, salad and pizza are available. Good beverage too. Owner is very courteous. We had a good dinner for EUR 20,00 each person (menu course, entree, mainly plate and some beers). Nothing special, but it worth because it wasn't expensive.

Excellent food for a reasonable price

Out of the three nights we ate out during our visit, this restaurant was our favourite. Food was all excellent, especially considering it was cheaper than anywhere we had been the previous nights. Service was good and friendly. Nice ambience. Suited us perfectly.

Delicious food - with a taste, something I think is quite difficult to find in Paris. Service was decent, timing was good, overall satisfied.

Found this place tonight as we were walking around. It was wonderful! So glad we stopped in. The whole experience, from the food to the ambience to the service was just incredible. Very reasonably priced, especially for the quality.

Finally a good meal
Jul 2015 • Family
We struggled to find a good meals while on vacation. This was a winner!! We needed to do laundry and there was a launderette next door and the staff was very accommodating while we went back and forth doing laundry.

Food was terrific.
good choice, reasonable portions, and best of all worth the money. One of the best meals we had in Paris!
