Recommended by Pascal Bourdier, the owner of our rental apartment, three of us visited this restaurant on our last night in Paris in October 2011. If we had gone earlier in the week, we would have gone more than once.

The restaurant is quite different from most in the city. It does not take reservations. It opens at 7:00pm. We arrived shortly after 6:30pm and waited in line. The servers only ask one question when arriving at your table - How do you like your steak done? The menu is simplicity itself - salad, rib steak and fries for a fixed price - 24.60 euros, when we were there. The only options are wine and dessert. The steak is excellent. Service is efficient and friendly. L'addition for the three of us, including a bottle of wine and desserts was €110.

Le Relais de l'Entrecôte is a small chain of restaurants. There are two other locations in Paris and one in Geneva. It is a winning formula. We'll be sure to return.
