“They will always find a place for you ...”
Review of Au Dernier Metro

Au Dernier Metro
Ranked #141 of 450 Nightlife in Paris
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 August 2009

Au Dernier Metro is a gem of place in an area not especially known for restaurants and nightlife.

Because of its popularity with tourists and locals alike, it often gets very busy. In good weather you may be seated on the terrace which seems to spread up the boulevard de Grenelle as far as the sweet wholesaler. They may even ask some good natured customers who are enjoying a drink, to move to the bar in order to allow you have a table where you can enjoy your meal.

You may order from a large choice of beers or wines by the glass to accompany your meal. I usually order the steack frites because it's so rare to find home made rather frozen chips. On a warmer day, I will order 'une planche', a wooden board with a large choice of dried hams, patés and cheese. The salads are very filling and not really the best choice if you are on a diet. I doubt that the duck and cheese that make its way into your salad so weight watchers beware.

The prices here are so good, that if you live in the area, there really is no better place to go.

My wife and I spent 3 months in Paris in the Spring of 2007 and were give a recommendation by a local to try Au Dernier. We loved it and ate here on a on three different occasions. The restaurant is full of locals, the place buzzes with atmosphere and the food is very French. Its always busy so arrive early or late or have a drink at the bar until a table becomes available.

"Au Dernier Metro" is mentioned in several guide books as a great 'authentic' Parisian bar on the bd Grenelle in the 15th. I live just around the corner but have never been in. However, when my father recently visited he had been reading about the place in Time Out and wanted to go there for a drink. Myself, my husband and my father went in, sat down at the last available table, which was set for eating, but said we only wanted to have a drink. The waiter said that was fine and cleared the table and took our order. Then 3 people came in who he knew, wanted a table to eat, so the waiter told the three of us, including my 75 year old father, would now have to stand at the bar for drinks as these people wanted to sit down. Lots of other people were sat down having drinks only but these seemed known to the waiter - so I am presuming he told us to move as he thought we were tourists and therefore it was acceptable to order us out of the seats to give to his friends. I can understand that they would prefer to keep tables free for people who want to eat - but if that is the case he shouldn't have let us sit down in the first place - or he should have warned us that if someone did come in to eat we would have to move. This may all sound very trivial but being turfed out of our seats so the waiters friends can sit down is hardly the 'welcoming' atmosphere that Time Out says the bar gives to visitors to Paris. If you are out for a drink in the area there are many places to go that are far better - try the Metropolitan across the road - a much nicer bar with very good service - no matter where they think you are from.
