Le Grand Bistrot: Fondue in the 5th
On our last night in Paris we ate fondue again, it's always been a favorite of mine and my niece had never had it before so it was a novel cuisine for her. On the maze of streets in this section of the Latin Quarter there is no lack of places to try fondue or raclette or a tartiflette and it was early so my usual idea of a place looking busy wasn't even working. So we finally just picked one, the prices from place to place were within a couple of euro of each other so I knocked out the 17€ per person places and settled on Le Grand Bistrot.
The interior is decorated with a lot of stuffed heads, I suppose the décor was aiming for ski chalet or hunting lodge.
Favorite Dish: We ordered the fondue savoyarde for two, it came with a salad, roast potatoes and a slice of some kind of meat that neither of us ate along with bread for dipping. While not the best fondue I've ever had, it certainly was good and left both of us happy
Le Grand Bistrot: simply great food!
great place for a french dinner!
raclette and fondue..and lovely ambient...
a pity... security law into the restaurant...no extinghuisher or so on...and it's full of little stove for the cheese !
but..go there ! it's great!
Favorite Dish: raclette and fondue
Le Grand Bistrot: Country Atmosphere in Paris
We were taken here for lunch by our friend Guyon after a morning of wandering rue Mouffetard, the pet market, Place Monge and the grounds of Notre Dame. Le Grand Bistrot has a homey French country decor - a very comfortable place for lunch. It is very close to Notre Dame and St. Severin - a perfect place for lunch after exploring the great Cathedral.
Favorite Dish: The onion soup was delicious followed by a very good chicken with pommes frites. For dessert I tried something different but basic. It was French creamy cottage cheese with a generous drizzling of honey over it. It went down very well.
Le Grand Bistrot: Traditional cheese meals
A whole wood restaurant, smelling cheese everywhere and decorated with a "savoyard" style.
Favorite Dish: 19.50 euros menu : onion soup, tartiflette and crème brûlée... After that, you will have eaten too much, but it feels so goooood ;-)
