    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

    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.

    For the love of god, order the Gauffre Jambon Artichaut. Best bite in Paris

    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.

    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!!!

    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

    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.

    Favorite place for 2 years now : Wine, prosciutto, cheese, carpaccio, mushrooms... On the counter, in a small place and with a great staff! You need to tolerate noise and being very close to people 😉

    Great wine & small plates. The bartenders were some of the friendliest in the city

    Tight space. And by tight I mean really elbow to elbow tight. There is no wine list. Just point or ask for a suggestion. Also place your whole order at once. It is difficult to place orders afterwards

    Ishmael Vasquez · September 24, 2014
  • Iris H.

    Tasty tapas with decent prices and excellent service! House made blood sausage was delicious!! Stand-up bar and gets busy quickly towards dinner time. Cool decor with menu hanging from ceiling.

    Artichoke and cured ham waffles; the hand-churned Bordier butter, set on the bar for everyone to share; and a wine recommendation from friendly barman Eric. Read more

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

    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.

    Taline Ekmekjian · June 5, 2014
  • 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.

    Phiton Nguyen · November 3, 2013
  • 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

    Metin Hullu · October 20, 2013

    Melhor boteco de Paris. O cardápio pendurado no teto é simples. Ótima carta de vinhos. Tapas excelentes.

  • Artur S.

    Música alta, milhões de opções de vinhos em taças, comidas em pequenas porções (que infelizmente não provei). Fica aberto até tarde, é do lado do metro, não tem lugar sentado.. Puta bar

    Carpaccio muito bom, pouco espaçoso mas com bom serviço, preço razoável

  • Clau S.

    O lugar mais descolado da cidade. Pra tomar um vinho em pé no balcão petiscando alta gastronomia. Peça o boudin noir, típica lingüiça de sangue de porco. Inigualável.

    Clau S · September 14, 2014
  • Luiza N.

    Pequeno e simpático bar. Mas comemos crepe "to go". Belíssimos os crepes por sinal.

    Luiza Novita · June 15, 2014

    Cada tapa, uma surpresa melhor...da pra comer varias e nao gastar tanto...Muito pequeno e se come no balcão, então chegue cedo.
