Auberge Nicolas Flamel
In a Middle Age setting (the house, one of the oldest in the capital, dates back to 1407), taste some refined dishes as well as a number of "precaviste" wines (aged 30 to 40 years). Expect to pay EUR46 for the Degustation menu and EUR15 for dishes such as a Leg of Lamb or Fried Red-Fish cooked with Almonds and Eggplant Caviar. A la carte meals are around EUR23.
An excellent moment shared with my husband to celebrate my pregnancy ! Excellent food and wine (I had to trust my husband on this last point...). A very romantic ambiance with candles all around. Very nice service too. A good place to discover again and again !
I booked a table couple of days before we went and it was a very good idea !
We spent a good moment and eat very tasty food and goo wine.
It was not so expensive. If you don't know what to choose, ask for the "Menu Degustation" with 5 dishes ! An awesome experience ! We will go back next time !
I stepped into Auberge Nicolas Flamel Restaurant and knew something extaordinary lived here. from the nearly petrified exposed beams to i'ts catherdral shaped stairs,and a peace I can only discribe as other worldly.
Couple this with a fabulous meal, An extensive cave, as our wine parings were impecable. And service, american style complete with English, and you have an unforgeteable experience. Expect to have passser bys stop and snap, Nicholas Flamel is mentioned in the Hunch Back Of Notre dam and of coarse Harry Potter.
Made reservations weeks in advance and when we arrived the lights were out and no one was at home. Two other couples arrived at the same time as we did to the same result. Very disappointed since we did not have a backup restaurant in that area.
This is NOT your snooty "French" restaurant. It's on a back street (look hard to find the door), and feels as old inside as it really is. The "Wine Cellar" is a real cellar -- our waitress had to lift the trapdoor to get down to the wine cellar. Menu written on a black board and a parchement the waitress brings around. Absolutely nothing pretentious here, and our "not a word of French" group did not feel the legendary Parisian rudeness either, even though nobody there spoke a word of English.
We had the leg of lamb, complete with the distinctly French white-beans side dish, and a pitcher of a very nice Beaujolais. I've paid more here in the states for a fancy burger and beer than that meal cost us. For those who want it, there's also a higher price "gourmet" menu, but as good as our "ordinarire" was, who wants the fancier stuff? For that we'll seek out a place with a Michlen star or two.
This is an experience that the stereotype "ugly American" tourist will not enjoy, and I hope none of those types ever find their way to this out-of-the-way place. It's too French. If you're not comfortable with different ways of doing things, don't go here, but if you want a genuine "auberge" meal, it's one I still remember 20 years after we were there in 1984.
After having the experience, I am convinced that there is no better place I could have spent my last night in Paris! A meal I am sure will not soon be forgotten, for it has already been a year and I can still taste it! Our 8:00 p.m. reservation had us spending over 3 hours in this most intriguing setting enjoying course after course of wonderful creations that even a "picky" American tourist such as myself thoroughly delighted in. The menu was carefully selected and everything went well together. Everything was wonderful! I will most definitely go back if ever in Paris again.
Our meal cost around 76 Euros, including a cocktail before the meal. However, even the most frugal person will walk away feeling wonderful, having dined in this most amazing atmosphere.
