    Sip glasses of artisanal wine paired with Béarnais-style small plates such as duck-heart fricassee, beef-cheek croque-monsieur, and splendid charcuterie from Camdeborde's brother's shop in Pau. Read more

    Cochon. Don't plan on eating for a few days after.

    Si nous avions une "bat cave," this would be it. PRO TIP: Get la terrine if they have it. C'est all-you-can-eat.

    Part of Yves Camdeborde's Saint Germain empire along with restaurant Le Comptoir and Hotel Le Relais (all in the same building) this small shop serves small plates of delicious basque cuisine

    It's a teeny tiny little place. In fact, I could hardly get into the doorway because with 10 people inside, it's already packed. If you want a crepe and no wine or other food stand outside.

    Hands-down the best value food in Paris and most jovial atmosphere. Prop self at counter, select glass of wine, charcuterie, and small plates. Daily specials always great: pig ears, tripe are faves.

    My new favorite place in Paris! Les croquettes jambon sont superbes! Also, the foie gras/bell pepper dish is amazing.

    Amazing. Michelin star quality food. The desserts are crazy.

  • Taline E.

    From noon to midnight, packed with folks ordering finger foods—ham croquettes, duck confit sausage hot dogs, fried Parmesan cheese puffs—from the drop-down ceiling menu and chalkboard daily specials.

  • Heather R.

    Lait de vache pris concombre celeri pomme for dessert is amazing. Duck hearts are a must!!

  • Heather R.

    Amazing tapas. Good price, taste and wine. Try the gauffre jambon artichaut, hot foie gras with pepper, cheese with cherries and much more! Awesome place!!!

  • Kate G.

    Crêpes up front and pork (Ibaïona) in the rear. Standing room only at Yves Camdeborde’s tapas and wine bar, a hit since it opened in fall of 2009. Go during the off hours. A great neighborhood option

    Fantastic food. I travel paris often and the world for food and this place I think has been the most satisfying in terms of quality, presentation, service, taste, and cost. Come 30 min before open.

  • Metin H.

    Love it!! Better moving space during lunch time, too crowded in the evening... You can not have the crepe inside, only the hors d'ouvres. Try the gaufre w/ artichokes & ham

    Expect amazing food. Also, expect hilarious service that can only be explained by drugs or a medical condition.

    No seating, but inexpensive. Crepes start at only 1.50€.

    Just ask Thomas to pick four or five different things for you - Trust him! My faves are macaron de boudin noir, pork belly, jambon/fromage plate and lots of white wine to wash it all down!

    At this elbow-to-elbow “hors d’oeuvres bar,” the bread basket is communal, but the foie gras skewers and boudin noir macarons are just for you. More places to eat like a local: tandl.me/12ufz7c

    This place has so many delicious dishes it’s really hard to choose! Luckily, you don’t have to: the menu is tapas-style so you can try a little of everything!
