We cannot come to Paris without at least one meal at Pottoka, and their value priced €23 two-course lunch (plat du jour and either appetizer or dessert) remains one of the best bargains in town. However, if one is not a fan of the plat...More

The chef definitely knows a thing or two about creating unique, high-quality food bursting with an array of flavors! We went back two more times when we were in Paris in May. Bravo!

Came highly recommended and deservedly so. Lovely space with friendly service (in English if needed) and a wonderful menu of modern takes on classic Basque dishes. Kid friendly and worth the trip.

新婚旅行最後のディナーで行きました。 料理の見た目、味、店の雰囲気、店員さんの対応共に最高でした。 次はファーストルームの方で食事して見たいです。 I went for dinner for the honeymoon end. It was best in the appearance of the dish, the taste, the atmosphere of the store and Mr. Shop assistant's correspondence. I'd like to have a meal to the first room and see next.

My wife and I have dined here many times. The Chef is Spanish and you can have tapis style dishes. The service is good and the wine list is broad enough. A great option

You can call ahead and see if they can accommodate your diet, but I would not recommend this place if you have any restrictions. The menu is very short, so not much room for changes.

Chez Pottoka, Sébastien Gravé conçoit une cuisine élégante et chaleureuse pour que les convives partagent un moment de plaisir et de gourmandise. Son style affirmé, ses idées neuves et son appétit des bonnes choses l’ont donc conduit à s’exprimer dans un restaurant moderne et décomplexé. Les assiettes sont appétissantes, hautes en couleurs et en saveurs. La carte affirme la franchise des goûts avec des entrées généreuses. Tous les plats racontent les mêmes envies de jouer avec les textures, sensuelles et craquantes.
