Thonet curved wood chairs, varnished ceramics, red leatherette benches, long rows of tables, white tablecloths, mirrors, colourful posters, hat stands… The décor is brand new, yet it transports us back to the 19th century.

Back then, Paris had more than 200 “bouillons”: effervescent, good-value eateries immortalised in the novels of Balzac and Zola, where penniless students and artists could fill up on a good stodgy broth. These were the places where Paris’s bistro spirit was forged!

What better neighbourhood than Pigalle and Montmartre, the epitome of Bohemian Paris, to recreate such an institution? The huge dining room, paired with a loggia terrace upstairs, accommodates around 300 guests in an ambiance teeming with activity, offering them classic local dishes: egg mayonnaise, French onion soup, celeriac in remoulade dressing, herring and potatoes in oil, marrowbone, calf’s head in gribiche sauce, beef, veal stew, sausage and mash, rum baba, rice pudding… The perfect introduction to Parisian art de vivre!

Take a romantic night stroll! After admiring the façade of the famous Moulin Rouge, walk up to the Place du Tertre and head towards the square in front of the Sacré-Coeur Basilica Paris is at your feet!
