Could anyone recommend me any such bistros or point me to any other threads which may be useful?

Chez Maitre Paul has been recommended but has anyone been recently?

Many thanks if you can help and sorry if this has been covered already!

Hi, welcome.

Make sure you check out the topic of topics on bistros/bistrots but to answer you the first thing you should recall is that (even with this strike) you can be almost anyplace quickly. But off the top of my head I'd recommend:

La Ferrandaise

8, rue de Vaugirard, 6th (RER: Luxembourg, Metro : St Michel)

T :

Closed Saturday lunch, Sunday and Monday

Menu at dinner or 3 courses at lunch = 30 €, plus wine running 14-63 €.

Although not bad and best loved by our members is:

Le Comptoir du Relais

9, carrefour de l’Odeon, 6th (Metro: Odeon)


Open everyday

Lunch 30-40 €, dinner 40 €.

Le Pre Verre

8 rue Thenard, 5th (Metro: Cluny La Sorbonne)


Closed Sunday and Monday lunch

Lunch menu 13 €, dinner 26 €.

However, far exceeding them, albeit only a bistrot by a strectch of the imagination is:

Ze Kitchen Galerie

4, rue des Grands Augustins, 6th (Metro: Saint Michel)

T: 01 44 32 00 32

Closed Sundays.

A la carte 30 €.

An old fave:

Josephine aka Chez Dumonet

117, rue du Cherche-Midi, 6th (Metro : Duroc)

T :

Closed Sundays and Mondays

Menus 25, 70, 75 €, a la carte 50-75 €.

Also, don't forget:

La Bastide Odeon

7, rue Corneille, 6th (RER: Luxembourg, Metro : St Michel)

T :

Closed Sundays and Mondays

Menus at 29.50 and 35.50 €.

And for a wonderful wine-bar:

Les Caves Miard

9, rue des Quatre-Vents, 6th (Metro: Odeon)


Closed Sundays and Mondays

Price depends on wines and charcuterie selected

or Les Papilles

30 rue Gay Lussac, 5th (RER: Luxembourg)


Closed Sunday and Tuesday and Thursday nights

Menu 28.50 €.

Interesting Anglo run:

Le Timbre

3 rue Saint Beuve, 6th (Metro : Notre Dame des Champs)

T :

Closed Sundays

Lunch menu 22 & 26 €.

Also not quite a bistro as you might think, but equally with English-spoken:

Fish la Boissonnerie

69, rue de Seine, 6th


Closed Sunday and Monday

Lunch Menus 10.50 + 21.50 €; dinner 28.50 + 32.50 €.

Truth be told, the area is rich with choices: also Cameleon is quite quite good.

Do some searching in the area to decide.

Good luck!
