Not a typical bistro: it serves Italian-style food in a an elegant decor of red painted walls and black tables. A welcome stop when visiting Ile St.-Louis.
Directions: Restaurant is on the main street of Ile Saint-Louis.
We went by this differently looking bistro on Ile St.-Louis a number of times until, one day, tired after a long walk, we suddenly felt that the cool ambiance matches what we needed at that moment: a place to rest, a place not too crowded (only a group of six occupied tables), and a place with risotto as the plat du jour.
Inside, red walls, black tables and immaculate table settings made a good first impression.
The menu du jour is a bit complicated but we managed to figure it out: from the list of the day one can choose an appetiser and a main course for 13 euros, or a main course and a dessert for 16 euros. Both options would include the plat du jour. If one takes only the plat du jour, the cost is 12 euros. A glass of wine is 4 euros, a coffee 2.50 euros.
Because my wife is allergic to milk products, she decided to take a main course a la carte, which was not an inspired choice because what she received was basically a half breast of boiled chicken, as neutral as can be. What saved the impression were the two side dishes, one complimentary, of beautiful fettuccine in olive oil and the other a serving of tasty vegetables.
On the other hand, I had two amazing dishes: a absolutely perfect risotto with parmigiano, and a sensational panna cotta decorated with red fruits and covered with a tangy cherry sauce. I consider myself an expert in panna cotta (but more as a gourmand than a gourmet...) and this one rates with the best I ever had.
By the time we left, the place was packed.
