Great experience! Not expensive for a restaurant introduced in Michelin guide. The Amuse bouche was light and flavor. The main dish with the fish of the day was correct (but too much quantity for me). The desert Ile flotante is absolutly must try one.

We visited the restaurant on a Saturday night for my birthday celebration.Even though we never notified them for the special occasion, the staff did their best to serve as in the best way. The food is amazing ,as well as the atmosphere. Definitely a great choice for a couple but big groups as well.

This restaurant is located in a beautiful quarter of the city and is upmarket but the food is simply amazing(don't miss the desert). The waiting staff are really quick and friendly and the interior of the restaurant has beautiful art.

Long before we arrived in Paris last November, we were anticipating a return visit to les bouquinistes for lunch. This had always been our favorite place to dine......charming, friendly, and delicious cuisine. However, our experience this time left us bewildered and highly disappointed! The servers lacked warmth and enthusiasm.....only going through the motions. And I might also mention that they... More

Were there for dinner after booking through the Fork App. Pricey options if you prefer the Fork discount and the set menus (Entree + plat or Plat + desert) is quite dismal. The food is generally average, certainly better than your neighborhood run of the mill bistro but nothing that was at all memorable. The space is loud and tightly... More

I first came here some 3 years back and never had the chance to return until this week. Unfortunately the charm that won me over first time completely vanished with this visit. For starters the service is lacking especially for a Guy Savoy establishment. One of the waiters dashed about dumping platters unceremoniously on tables with a curt mutter of... More

As eating in such a great restaurants in Paris, this one was more than average! Both food and service met only the standard and average level. We were quite confused what the restaurant tried to serve and what was the red line on the menu. The service was even worse than the food. I would not visit this restaurant anymore,... More

The place looks kind of modest and is really easy to walk by without noticing. The simple but stylish interior proved to be very cozy and underlined the main treat: the food. The mushrooms and prawns ravioli was an excellent starter and it only got better with the tuna as the main. Selection of sorbets was just perfectly brisk ending.... More

Our local friends suggested this restaurant that they had not been to in some time. It is the "baby bistro" of Guy Savoy, one of the stalwart chefs of Paris. A very picturesque location, across the street from the Seine, on a quai. A rather modern environment with big windows to enjoy the outside. I think the cuisine got top... More
