It got close to 7 pm and tummy started to give signals "hungry, hungry".
As we planned to go to the Eifeltower as well the same evening, we found ourselves a restaurant not to far away from the tower on walking distance.
Le Bistrot de Papa sounded so much intriguing and it looked nice and comfortable inside.
So we risked.
The waiter, Guy Roland, was very friendly and helpful.
Say hello to him if you ever happen to go there :)
Favorite Dish We had a menu: entree and plat du jours for 17,5 euro each.
2 wines of the month at 16 euro's a bottle

Thank you Guy for the translation :)
good that when I started dinner I didn't knew exactly what I was eating hahaha
but it was ok although too much meat.
Next time I chose some lighter entree.
Le Bistrot de Papa is a wonderful little place located very near the Ecole Militaire metro stop, in the heart of the Rue Cler neighborhood on Paris' Left Bank.
We had a fantastic dinner here while I was in Paris and I highly recommend it to other visitors. The restaurant has a wood and leather interior, which makes it feel very cozy and warm. The clientele was mixed- about half locals and half tourists. They have menus in French and English. The service was excellent and the food was wonderful. I would happily eat here again and again!
Favorite Dish The French Onion Soup was just delicious here. Definitely the best I had in Paris. The Quiche Lorraine was also fantastic. The specialty here seems to be mussels, as I saw bowl after bowl being brought out from the kitchen. You definitely get a lot of mussels for your money!
I recommend saving room for dessert. We had giant profiteroles, served with scoops of vanilla ice cream and a delicious, warm chocolate sauce.
Le Bistrot de Papa has a pixed price menu at 17 euros, but I think you get more variety if you order from the regular menu. Entrees ranged from about 9-15 euros. The bisto also has a good wine list.
My wife, daughter and I enjoyed every dish we tried. The entire staff was extremly helpful and patient with our broken French as well as a picky eater. We dined here on our first and last evening in Paris.
