Our First Trip Staying in the 7th

Could you advise on restaurants in the 7th that have prix fiix (formula) lunch or dinner

Moderately priced. Going in September, and also need to know if you need resrvations for
Taillevant and what district it is in.

  1. Taillevent is in the 8th, rue Lamennais, reservation is mandatory at +33144951501. If you are looking for good value lunch menu for high gastronomy, you may also consider Les Elysees du Vernet (see review

    Very moderately priced great bistrots in the 7th include Chez l'Ami Jean and Les Cocottes.

    1. One of my favorites in the 7th is Le Temps Perdu. I thought it was reasonable but can't remember if there was a prix fixe - I think so. It's very close to Rue Cler and the nearby Metro stop.

      1. Try Les Ormes, a one-star favorite near les Invalides that has prix fixe lunches and dinners, is reasonable, and is quite good:

        1. The 7th covers a lot of territory; and the metro system isn't very helpful in covering this eme. Where are you staying?

          1. Some moderately priced places in the 7th offering prix fixe lunch and dinner are Le P'tit Troquet, Le Florimond, Clos Des Gourmets, Au Bon Aucueil, Violon d'Ingres(€45), Cafe Constant. Taillevent, in the 8th, definitely requires reservations.

              If you are staying in the Tour Eiffel area, here are some PF prices, usually limited to lunch: Leo le Lion-36E, Cafe Constant-27E, L'Ami Jean-30E, L'Affriole-29E, P'ti Troquet-30E, Florimond-21E, Fontain de Mars-23E, Clos des Gourmets-29E, Nabuchodonosor-28E, Fables de La Fontaine-32E, Chez les Anges-34E, and Les Ormes-38E. Of the above, my favorites are Clos des Gourmets, Florimond, Fables and Cafe Constant, for various reasons. All are good to excellent and well worth the price.
