I've been visiting Chez Paul for over 20 years and have always enjoyed the food and ambience. However, on the last occasion the waiting staff were indifferent and the food my partner and I were served was lack lustre and portion size much diminished. The...More

This is one of those lovely survivals from old Paris: lovely decor, swift service, and a menu that goes way beyond the bog standards. I had the stuffed rabbit which was delicious. Very good onion soup and profiteroles.

We had three different dishes, two different steak meals and one with duck confit. All meat from all dishes was dry and had no taste at all, potatoes ok. Service very slow, we had to wait very long for the bill as well. Not recomendable

As far as i'm concerned, everything about this place is right. The decor and ambience is typically Parisian and couple this with great service and a fantastic menu which is worth 4 stars on it's own. The food was simply stunning. I'm a very fussy...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

Hello. They have a number of separate rooms and so I am sure a Private Dining experience could be organised however I do not know if they would do a buffet or a smaller set menu. Best to contact restaurant directly.
