“Great neighborhood restaurant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2012

My husband and I dined at La Bonne Heure twice during our recent trip to Paris since it was a quick walk from our hotel. Both meals were great, and the staff was very helpful and patient with our lack of French. Highlights were the risotto (had both the shrimp and scallop), and the desserts. The creme brulee was incredible! Wine selection was also good and again, the waiters were very helpful and found us a delicious white to complement our meal. Also, the place is very charming and cozy, especially on a winter evening. We would definitely recommend La Bonne Heure!

“Very nice little restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2012

We went to the 'Bonne heure' on new years night because we did not wanted to spent a fortune on set menus.
The bistro/restaurant is very cosy, but you really have to know it. It is not on the usual tourist tracks. metro station is not far.
We had a lovely dinner and good wine. The choice is very meaty. So do not go there if you don't like meat. The staff was extremely friendly.
We definitely would go there again.

“nice but rushed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2011

The service and food was lovely if just a little bit rushed, not sure if it was because it was a Sunday evening? The place was quiet with just a few tables in and out occupied but after reading previous reviews we went in. We both went for the 2 course meal for 24 euros, my prawn rissotto was lovely,partner had steak, he rated it average however we both loved the creme brulee, to die for. Another expensive wine but no time for coffee as the tables were being stacked! maybe we should have arrived earlier!

“... la bonne humeure: the little surprise you don't expect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2011

This place was recommended to me by a friend who leaves up the street. Unpretentious, in a quiet area of paris that would not be your first choice to go for a meal, whether you're from Paris or not, it is in the Quartier des Batignolles.

I am from the Paris suburbs but live in England and I was in Paris for Christmas-New Year with my English partner. As we were staying in the area we followed my friend's recommendation and oh boy we were not disappointed. It's not budget but by my standards it's very good value for money. The food was gorgeous, the wine list impressive and the service impeccable.

Food wise this is about simple but perfectly executed french cuisine, without falling in the trap of the classics. Fish, meat, veggie dishes with gorgeous sauces and accompaniements. Fresh bread, great wines, cheeses... my idea of heaven at the table.

The decor is very delightfully quaint with its numerous clocks from all ages, the setting is intimate and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly.

Can't wait for the next opportunity to go again.
