Brasserie Flo at Paris airport--very good

We got stuck at CDG for several hours after missing our connection to Nice and stumbled upon the airport branch of Brasserie Flo. The saumon fume was delicious, the steak tartare one of the best I've had--raw beef, raw egg, chopped shallots, parsley, and condiments that you get to mix yourself. My traveling companion had the duck confit, which he enjoyed. All in all, a pleasant (and expensive) way to kill a couple of hours between flights. I will remember this meal when I wander through the concourse of an American airport and have to choose between Popeye Fried Chicken and McDonalds.

  1. Great tip. I have a few hours to kill next Friday while I wait for my sis and nieces arriving from another city.

      The Brasserie Flo is at CDG 2 (F). Unless you leave from there or have hours to kill, no point to go to that terminal. However, it's in the public zone (before customs).

      The CDG web page lists all restos and locations. This just by the way.

        Thanks for this information. I arrive in T2 and have 3 hours to kill before I meet my people in T3.

          I had a very good andouillette there last October.

    2. Anyone know how late B Flo is open? I'm on the day flight out of JFK that arrives CDG around 9pm. I'm planning on overnighting at the airport for a TGV the next am. It would be great to grab a decent meal before my sleeping pill. :)

        The website says till 10 PM. Consequently, you won't be able to make it.

        Your hotel at CDG is likely to be a better bet.

      2. We stayed at the CDG Ibis to avoid stress catching a morning flight, and after 6-7 hours of train, metro, and packed, stuffy RER we didn't want another train or bus, so ended up at the Flo in 2F. I thought it was a bit odd that they had no choucroute on the menu (what kind of brasserie is that?), but the food was very good and they had some nice wines. Prices maybe a bit inflated, but entirely satisfactory. Feels like a real restaurant, not an airport fast-food spinoff.

        1. My daughter and i have 3 hours to kill at lunchtime in a couple of weeks so this review was very helpful, thanks. Any idea about price range? I can't find a posted menu. Thanks!!

            As I remember, dinner back in 2007 was over $100, but we had wine and apps. With euro inflation, probably more.
