La Bastille used to be the area where furniture was made, and cabinet-makers, joiners, and other artisans were regular patrons of this traditional bistro. Today, the atmosphere remains homely (gingham tablecloths on the tables) and the restaurant is so full, it's ready to burst. Salad with warm goat's cheese, beef with Bearnaise sauce, Gratin Dauphinois and homemade desserts are just some of the unpretentious dishes on offer. You are expected to pay EUR27-EUR34 ordering a la carte.
this place was absolutly amazing i just loved it the entres where fabulous and the mains where just splendid i have to say though the servive was a bit dodgy but overall a great day out and 8 out of 10
On a grimy Bastille sidestreet, Chez Paul manages to be elegant and relaxed at the same time. The food is very French, deeply French (foie gras, canard, poulet, pave), very good, and occasionally great. The restaurant expanded- almost doubled in size- four years ago- with no discernible drawbacks. The joy of the ambience is created partly by the diversity of the crowd- bankers in suits, families, cross-dressers, hipsters, tourists- and all are warmly welcomed.
I visit Paris regularly and can't bear to miss an evening there.
Never before have I had such a wonderful, charming, delighful meal. The atmosphere is quaint as if you've stepped into someone's home. If you are a large group see if you can sit in the back of the restaurant at a large farm table, it's brilliant. The staff are friendly, helpful, and gracious. I will return to Chez Paul again and again!
Start with the Foir Gras de Canard, 2 thick beautiful slices of melt-in-your-mouth pate! Or the Assiette de Charcutrie. Follow with the Souris d'Agneau, it's heaven. It wouldn't be a holiday without dessert! And it wouldn't be France if it weren't Tarte Tatin. It's golden, warm, and perfect especially when paired with the lovely cold full bodied creme.
Of the wines, there are many from with to choose, I had the Ladoix 1er Cru La Corv�e 1999 from Beaune. It seemed a perfect match.
If you miss Chez Paul, you have really missed a golden dining experience!
This was the best little restaurant I ever found while I was living in Paris. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is superb, really cosy, and what one feels should be the real small Parisian restaurant experience. The service is not fast, don't expect it to be, enjoy the wine, relax, and when the food arrives it will always impress.
Somehow the place still manages to feel like it's your special secret find, even though it's always busy, and that you shouldn't tell everyone.
Can't wait to go back on my next visit to Paris!
Whenever I go to Paris, I just cannot miss this stop.
By myself or with my dearest friend, I always find here the best typical food and a very wide selection of French wine. Don't forget to book... always very busy.
This busy restaurant in the 11th is a gem. In spite of the crowds and occasional waits, the staff is always warm and friendly (albeit sometimes a little slow)
The food is great traditional French food in a traditional Parisian setting. Well worth visiting, and coming back to again and again.
Chez Paul is a bustling authentic inexpensive bistro in the heart of the 11th. I have eaten here on two recent trips to Paris and all I can say is "oooh lala". Go for the steak au poivre or any of the meats. The friendly staff will help you pick a good wine to match on any budget.
This is a place with excellent food and service, offering the best of French tradition. Not too expensive, wonderful old localities and placed in one of the most beautiful squares of Paris. I have been there several times and it has never disappointed me.
Rustic French specialities opposite the Seine. The wide choice of dishes is mainly based on red meats and poultry, so
this is no place for vegetarians. Cheeses from Lyon are a house speciality, and the hot Lyon sausage stuffed ...
