This tiny restaurant only seats about 25 covers but is worth a visit. Simple food cooked on the premises, lovely friendly service and excellent wines. The decor is an eclectic shabby chic, but the food is definitely not shabby ; the best carrots I have...More

We had lunch at La Mere Poule and loved everything about it. We sat at one of their outside tables, where the waiter was funny, informative, and attentive. We each had a different pasta dish and everyone was amazed at how thin and light the...More

This is Oberkampf Street, so of course every bar or restaurant is bourgeois bohème. The most interesting thing of this small “restaurant” is the decor. The place is super small, so clients are sharing tables or crammed in a corner. There is even a table...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
