Although the neighborhood is a bit quirky, this standout bistrot in the 12th arrondisement is well worth the walk or taxi ride. Fresh, local, seasonal, with a pleasant wait staff and nice vibe throughout. Everything that you want a French bistro to be. As a...More

Very traditional, authentic French bistro. Full of locals. Excellent wine and food. If you order the rice pudding, it is enough food for at least 6 people.

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy
Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois
de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make

I'm pretty convinced they can accommodate gluten-free options. First, they're flexible and accommodating. Secondly French Cuisine is full of gluten-free options itself.
