1 night in Paris by Warwick hotel


My parents are staying 1 night at the Warwick hotel in Paris. They are looking for a nice restaurant that is somewhat close to their hotel for dinner that night. I have not been to Paris yest so I am clueless for help. Any rec's??? I assume they want something that screams Pairs, so a ncie bistro is probably an idea. For price range, i am guessing 300 euros max. Hopefully there are some suggestions. Thanks a lot!

  1. We had dinner at Le W, the restaurant in the Warwick, a few years ago. At the time, it had a Michelin star, which I felt was well-deserved. The food was excellent, the service attentive and atmosphere comfortable and serene. We spent about 200 euros including wine, water and coffee, an excellent value. Michelin has since taken away the star, so I don't know how it would measure up now, but I think it would be worth considering.

    1. Very few traditional bistros in this high rent area, but there are a few; Chez Catherine and Bistro de L'Olivier are worth checking out. Also Flora Danica if they like seafood.

      1. There's a question of what night that is -- a lot is closed sat-sun-mon. For an old-fashion Parisian bistrot experience, consider Le Gourmet des Ternes on bd de Courcelles.

          A rguably the best place for high-end Steak & Frites! A bit of a walk though.

            They are dining on a Saturday night. There are a lot of places closed that night???

              Of those I commented on, only L'Olivier will be open.

                Many restaurants, particularly little bistrots, are open mon-fri. Le Gourmet des Ternes is ones of them. If you don't need to open on sat, you're better off not opening.

                One place that is not bad, not expensive, and open 24h, is La Maison de l'Aubrac on rue Marboeuf. But the Champs-Elysées is not a neighbourhood for little bistrots. This is why I suggested heading to the more residential neighbourhoods nearby. For instance le Bistrot d'à Côté on rue Gustave Flaubert is a great place. Also the many great bistrots of the rue Lauriston are there.
