Some people eating "fine food" in Paris has to be expensive, but the weekday 16€ two course lunch menu which includes a glass of wine and coffee is hard to beat. On this visit, the menu included a surprisingly flavorful gazpacho de pastèque au Xérès,...More

A few steps from Place d'Italie on a quiet street. This small and charming restaurant is worth a detour and won't break the bank. Seated quickly and with a smile, we opted for the set lunch menu, a steal at 38 Euros. The atmosphere was...More

We had scallops which were exquisite, followed by duck ready cooked to perfection. My partner had fish which was excellent. Beautiful desserts. The service was friendly, and efficient.

Great food, amusing staff, decent prices, and not as crowded as many restaurants. The pot-au-feu was very popular, as were the fish dishes. For dessert, go for the roasted pear: Yum!

Place d'Italie / Quartier Asiatique
Far off the beaten path, this part of Paris is a
forgotten gem worth exploring. Avenue d’Ivry houses
Europe's largest Chinatown with great Asian
supermarkets and shops, and a thrilling atmosphere
around Chinese New Year. Place d’Italie impresses
onlookers as soon as they set their eyes on it. Not

imitate provincial France and you’ll feel like you’ve
