As we live around the corner, we were regular customers at the Petite Panisse for many years before it was taken over by the present owners. We went for a quick lunch in early July and noted to our great disappoinment that the only thing...that hadn't changed was the decor and the name. The prices have increased by approximately 50%. We miss the dinner menu at 29 euros... But the saddest news is that we found the food truly mediocre. My meat was tough and lacked taste. We were so disappointed with the main dishes that we didn't stay for desserts. In addition with the price hike comes a lot of attitude from the staff. Needless to say, we won't be going back and strongly recommending avoiding such overhyped places.More

As newbies to eating in Paris we were glad of some recommendations from our hotel and this place was on the list. We were certainly not disappointed, the food was delicious. The place is "rustic" not chic, so casual dress is fine. It has a...lovely warm cozy atmosphere with friendly staff and a menu that gives enough choice to satisfy but not so much that you know they couldn't possibly be cooking from scratch. We had medium steak which was very tender (although it was more rare to a UK eater) and very tasty desserts all at reasonable pricesMore

Wonderful proper French meal off the beaten track but well worth it. Not on normal trail so full of locals. Good value for money for Paris.

Was recommended here by our hotel reception and our only regret is we didnt try it earlier! The food was simply amazing! My entree was crab with avocado while my wife got the ravioli in truffle oil. Both blew our minds away! We then had...the octopus and the pork. The octopus was unique and exquisitely done. The pork was tender and juicy although my wife found it too fatty. We ended off the meal with a panna cotta which had so many layers of flavours that was just unbelievable! Definitely returning if i drop by Paris again!More

Our favourite restaurant during a week's visit to Paris, so much so that we went there twice for dinner. Great atmosphere, cheerful service and great food. The starters were interesting, mushroom ravioli, avocado crab both being terrific. For main courses we had duck with beetroot...puree and classic steak on our second visit. Menu changed between visits which is clearly a good sign too!More

Great taste, authentic ambiance, French cuisine with a modern touch. The Tuna tartar is a great starter. The entrecote steak is classice, but I would change a chice from medium to medium well. Don't miss the Tarte Au Pomme. You will have to wait 10...minutes or more, but they make it to order! One of the greatest you can find in Paris.More

We were looking for a proper French restaurant and were delighted to find au petit panisse! What a menu! We really wanted to taste everything! The staff were all really attentive and lovely. The Chef even went out of his kitchen to give us a...bit more French fries and bring our desert! The wine was very good! And 3 course menu @ 32 euros for such quality is just amazing!More

This little restaurant is not far from Nation, and is worth the visit. I have been twice so far, and both times we were all extremely impressed with our selections. The food was simply excellent and the staff/owner were so friendly and helpful. I will...certainly be back.More
