Just stopped in after a very long cold walk for a hot chocolate and oh my god it was worth it as it was the best I’ve ever had. Nice little friendly place full of artists and bohemians all ages young to old.

Visited here on the recommendation of a guide book. Very good confit of duck and excellent wine. We were the only English people there but we were made very welcome and other customers talked to us and asked about our trip. Thoroughly recommend this place...More

This pub is a haunt of locals and managed by a warm and effervescent lady called Agnes! We stopped here for dinner and for an aperitif the following night! Just perfect if you're looking for a relaxed and friendly place for a bite to eat!

Le Balto was the perfect stop for a few glasses of Verne Bargerac and Leffe Bier as we wandered the streets of Paris. Great staff, cold bier and good wine.

As Americans traveling in France, it's wonderful to be treated like a local, with lovely service, good, food, and a great staff. Plenty to go around at Le Balto. We sat outside for a dinner around 7:45 on a Tuesday and took in the ambiance...More

I ordered the confit de canard (duck) and it was absolutely delicious! I was very happy with both the meal and the service.

dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
