Description: We own a charming and authentic bistro from 1900 and we simply offer fresh products from "le marche" that our Chef Erwan le Gahinet puts together to create very tasty French cuisine. French and world cuisine because we litterally are globe trotters of bistros. We travel for food and we bring back authentic flavours from around the globe. We do everything to make you feel at home and very welcome in our restaurant. Only one saying guides us : the pleasure to please! We are opened everyday for lunch and dinner. See you soon at BISTROTTERS!

“excellent food for a low price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2013

I was searching for a good restaurant to stay at for dinner when i was planning our trip to paris a few weeks ago and read through the reviews of this restaurant. So i decided to go there with my girlfriend. The staff was very friendly and food delicious. You guess you will not find any other restaurant in Paris with such qualitatively good food in combination with this price - even not in switzerland :)

“Deserve the visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2013

I came from The Champs Elysees, an area where you certainly have many options to choose how to eat well. The place is very small, but cozy. I had the foie gras, very good, and then the "agneau", the lamb, also quite good. To finish with the "pain perdu ..... avec chocolat croquant". What a delice! I eat very well indeed. But what made me very happy, on top of what just said as a nice experience, was the enthusiasm and passion of the two guys running the show: the one serving you and the chef. They try hard to do their best to make of this a nice experience. They will see me again, no doubt! I do suggest you to try.

“Amazing, amazing, amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2013

Went with my girlfriend for lunch without a reservation on a Saturday and was seated immediately. The daily menu is on a blackboard but the owner was very quick to come over and translated the entire board for us. For the entree we got duck foie gras and an apple something with fish.
He told me it would be like no other duck foie in Paris. I've eaten it at a couple restaurants in Paris and was always disappointed. Here it was absolutely amazing.
The owner is a master of wines and I would strongly suggest letting him pick the wine for you. We got a glass each for our entrée, and a half bottle for our main and dessert.
The main course that we has was pork belly and lamb, they were both the best we had eaten in Paris.
The dessert was chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream, and I got a pear stuffed with vanilla ice cream, both amazing.
The owner made the experience, unlike every other French waiter, he understood our jokes in English, (excuse me sir, I accidentally drank all of my wine). The total bill was 100 Euro, because of all the wine we drank, and we had espresso at the end. Definitely my favorite meal in Paris, and a must if you're visiting.

Thank you for taking time to review our bistro! I'm happy you had a table for lunch without booking, not that it is rare, but we love it when we can say yes to walk ins! lunch is generally more walk in friendly than evening. See you soon at Bistrotters!

“Ligue 1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2013

I heard only good things about this brand new resto that i booked it as a suprise during our stay in "the Marais" in Paris. We both like good quality food and French cuisine. After a really superb dinner we can only recommend it to everybody who likes to discover excellent resto's with original quality dishes and enthousiastic and very friendly service. The red "Roussillon" wine was a very good suggestion for our dish. The future looks very bright for this team! Tx. for a very pleasant and memorable evening.
