My partner and I were taken out for lunch by our french customer/friend. We had eacargot, canard, chipirones and foie gras. They were perfectly cooked, delectably good. Though the interiors do not give justice to the restaurant but a little refurbishing would help. Great Food...More

Upmarket restaurant specialising in Basque cuisine. Excellent ham starter followed by spicy steak and chips. Extensive French wine list, went for a bottle of Beaumes de Venise Cotes du Rhone which was outstanding. Good value.

Still scruffy in a scruffy neighborhood in the 3rd Arr. Not uncomfortable (maybe the bathroom), but decidedly rundown. But not in the kitchen, where the Basque chef/owner continues to turn out a menu plus a long list of daily specials, all of which look, taste...More

We've been visiting Au Bascou for many years, and not had a dull meal yet. A very varied menu and an expert chef. The ravioli with truffles, and the scallops were both excellent this time. A real cut above.

There's a ritual my friend has observed for years. In November he asks our group to join him in a specific restaurant. And it's Royale hare time. We ended up last time Au Bascou. Discreet entrance in Arts & Metiers area. Warm little bistro, small...More

I chose this restaurant "on spec" as I had just arrived in Paris, was tired, and it was near my hotel. Approached it, therefore, with an open mind. As others have suggested, it doesn't look much from the outside, which in some ways was a...More
