Amarante is probably not the place you would pick for a date, unless you're both foodies. Service and decor are certainly pretty basic. But that's all part of the concept: You are here for the food, and you will not be disappointed (unless you're a...More

I found Amarante open on Christmas, and it was 10 minutes from our apartment. Recommended in Michelin and Fooding, I assumed it would be pretty darn good. The food was good, but certainly not something to go out of your way for. If your grandmother...More

I’ve chosen this little restaurant because it’s mousse au chocolate has been mentioned as transcendental and unmatched. Then there was a review of high praise by Alex Lobrano, a known long-time authority in Paris eating. Plus, it’s open on both Sunday and Monday – where...More

We have followed our bliss to the chef's imaginative servings up of new takes on classics. Unusual delightful stuffed cabbage. Incredible lamb. Austere table - almost feels like a cafeteria, but the people are friendly and the food is stunning.

Our last dinner on a Spring, 2016 three week visit. A new name, highly recommended by sources with mixed records. A non-descript one block street close to the Bastille Opera, a convenient location. One look inside through the window, and our expectations sank. Bright. Charmless....More

Simple delicious food at a quiet neighborhood corner. Great escargot salad appetizer and the duck breast was cooked perfectly. A bit too greasy for my taste. Would be nice to be on a more healthy side.

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
