Decent restaurant open on Sunday in Paris?

Does anyone know of a decent restaurant open on Sundays in Paris? In or around the 4th would be best, if possible.

  1. It's in the 6th, not the 4th, but Fish is my go-to place for Sundays. We usually arrive on a Sunday, and are jetlagged, so we like to go there because we know we like the food, and there are lots of English speaking servers. Our French skills are not the best on our first day.

      La Fontaine de Mars in the seventh. Ate there on a sunday night two weeks ago and the staff couldn't have been nicer. Food was wonderful and the ambience was lovely, classic bistro (as seen through American eyes, perhaps).

        Here are some exterior photos of La Fontaine de Mars

      2. Slide north east to 11e and try Jeanne A, winebar/epicerie/casual "dining room". If you enter the name in the search feature above, you will find many references and details.

        1. Both of the above recc's. would be fine for casual, but closer to you in the 3rd is Café des Musées. If you would prefer something a bit more up-scale try Drouant in the 2nd.

            I much prefer le Reminet (5th near Notre Dame) to Drouant, for food and service as well as atmosphere. The desserts are better at Drouant, however.

              In the general area, Le Hangar is a nice neighborhood bistro. Decent bistro food, local crowd. Am nearly sure to have seen the sumptuous terrace full of happy diners at Sunday lunch but won't swear to it...

            2. Most everything in the 4th is open on Sunday, for obvious reasons. I don't recall if Benoit offers it's 38 Euro prix-fixe lunch on Sunday tho. They might have a brunch menu.

              I wouldn't count on Hangar being open.
