The restaurant takes advantage of its geographic position to offer poor food at ridiculous prices to tourists. I had only glanced at the menu when ordering a sandwich and a croque monsieur, and regretted being such an idiot when receiving the bill, especially given the...More

Just stopped by for a cold beer and to rest our feet, sat down at an outside table and ordered, while my wife went to wash her hands. The waiter brought over the drinks and left a bill for 11 euros, I handed him a...More

Avoid this place. We were so hungry and tired we thought this would be ok. Immediately realised our mistake when very overpriced drinks arrived. Had Croque Monsieur which was a slice of bread (not even toasted) with grated robber cheese and the worst ham I...More

We chose Le Bastille at random from several cafes/brasseries located near the Bastille Metro station. Sometimes random choices pay off; unfortunately this was not one of those times. Extremely overpriced drinks. And to say the server was inattentive, or even disinterested, is giving him too...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
