Staying next door with a friend, we have eaten here twice now. These must be the best steak tartare I have ever eaten, and the boeuf onglets so tender, in the chef's special winemakers sauce. Very friendly service, from the girl behind the bar to...More

Absolute superb cocktails you get in Café Moderne! Got the Best Moscow Mule with Ketel One Vodka ever! Thereby the food is fine and the atmosphere is lively and friendly as owner Mido and his crew are. Don't leave Paris without visiting this cafe!

Very good burgers and meatballs - their specialty! Homemade fries and a choice of sauces are great. Different informal decor adds a special twist to this place.

Go for the cocktails which are ridiculously good! Co-founder Mido was ranked 1st at national level and 3rd world-wide in 2014. I went with a girlfriend I've not seen in years and we enjoyed a small selection of honest French cuisine with seriously good drinks....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
