Le Bistro du Peintre is actually a beautiful art deco space catering to date night for the single people of the 11th and 12th Arrondissements. It was fun looking at all the couples, deciphering which ones were actually having a good time. Some times the...More

It’s only too easy to understand why this 1902 art nouveau café-bistro is such a popular haunt for locals and those tourists lucky enough to discover its superb and surprisingly affordable cuisine, served all day by attentive waiting staff beneath ornately decorated ceilings and architraves....More

Would recommend the Bone Marrow and Onion Soup starter! The mains were great too. We had the braised pork cheeks, roast chicken breasts and duck confit.

I visited with an old friend (vegetarian) and had a great lunch here. The interior is to be seen to be believed - very art deco, Gaudi-esque. Food is basically the traditional French hearty staples done very well. My buddy took a penne with vegetables,...More

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
