Nos ancêtres les Gaulois
With an interior that recalls the times of Vercingetorix, chief of the Gauls, this bawdy inn is situated on the île Saint-Louis in the centre of Paris. The unique dishes are served on wooden tables and the hors d'oeuvres in an all-you-can-eat buffet. Try the grilled meats and kebabs cooked over an open fire and wash them down with a barrel of wine. Don't let the small entrance fool you: the restaurant seats 300, but book a table, as it's a popular spot. A set menu is available for EUR33.
My senior year of high school we took a trip to Paris, and our tour company offered an optional,"Gaul Meal" cost was $79, don't know why? huh,oh well. The buffet was good, but most places in Paris have that style of buffet, though the Paté was pretty good!, I had the Duck Kebabs! Pretty good, Id never had it that way, the assortment of cheeses was absolutely awesome, tried each one, the wine was exceptional you get a whole wooden jug, the dessert which was a frozen lemon peel with a sorbet type filling was awesome, the man with the guitar even sang Aux Champs Elysee for us!!
We met friends, other tourists, there for dinner (Oct. 2008) and we were soooooooooo disappointed. We had just a few nights to dine in PARIS and spent it at this place???? Don't make our mistake. Buffet of very fatty pork sausages and pate, unlimited red wine that was fair in quality and the main course was ....well why continue? Choose another place.
This restaurant is a knock- off of the place next door,
"The Sargent Recruiter" (that used to be really good and fun) until they remodeled, and this place copied
it. A set menu,two choices. You do get a lot of food
for the money. Not French dining. Wine is included.
my husband and i were there 10 years ago because his brother from denmark had said it was a great place to experience.we had a great time and knew we would return on our next trip to france. my husband is from france, so we try to visit often. we just returned from a 2 week visit in paris with another couple. we went because it was their 50 year anniversary and our 24 year anniversary, our special day was first, so we decided to go to the gaulois. the 4 of us had so much fun. we are not young ones, but really had a great time. actually we had so much fun that we decided to go back again on our friends special day. i do not understand how anyone can say that the sausage was fatty, or the pate fatty, or the meat not cooked well. when you are in another country you have to be open to the menu there. if you are not. you do not belong there. we all enjoyed the menu and the service we were to go back for a third visit, but sickness prevented it. as for the price, we thought it was very fair. we also loved the idea of salad in a basket. i would go there again in a heartbeat. i wish we had a restaurant in tampa like the gaulois. i would also love to have the recipe for the pate that they served. also the bread was soooooo good.and the baked potato was also great. i do not see how anyone can say bad things about the gaulois.
I went to this restaurant in 2000 on a recommendation from a friend. What a great concept. At first I was afraid to touch most of the food because I wasn't sure what we would be charged extra for like most places in Europe. After finding out that the veggie basket was to make our salad and the wine was all you can drink (you fill your jug as needed ) things started to look up. It is a price fixed menu and you pick out your meat which is cooked in a fireplace, salad you make your own creation, and dessert is a choice of a few things. I had a great time and great experience at this restaurant.
