If you're expecting an all out fancy French dinner, then don't come here. If you're expecting an old school, friendly, bio and farmer friendly, simple restaurant with excellent simple healthy food like you used to be able to find all over France, then this is...More

I read some of the reviews here that said food was good, but I disagree. Service was good and attentive. They also brought out the English menu without my asking so that is nice. I ordered the joues de cochon du braisee, which is braised...More

On the rue de la Butte aux Cailles, organized as a "workers cooperative". Interesting truly French ambience. We dropped in for a drink one afternoon just as a cloudburst surprised us while wandering the Butte. Interestingly, it only has a "Level 1" permit, meaning that...More

Followed a nice walk around this neighborhood from a Paris guide. The guide highly recommended a stop at Le Temps des Cerises, calling it the hub of the neighborhood and best dining option of the area. We have been visiting Paris for 30 years. I...More

If you want to visit La Butte aux Cailles to see some street art, Le Temps des Cerises is a good choice for a lunch break. The restaurant is run as a SCOP, collaborative, which is unusual for a restaurant. They service good French food....More

Place d'Italie / Quartier Asiatique
Far off the beaten path, this part of Paris is a
forgotten gem worth exploring. Avenue d’Ivry houses
Europe's largest Chinatown with great Asian
supermarkets and shops, and a thrilling atmosphere
around Chinese New Year. Place d’Italie impresses
