Can't believe that there isn't a "Restaurants" heading here! And in Paris of all places too!

To start things off, if you're a seafood addict in all its forms, then make a note of this address:
L'Ecailler du Bistrot,
22 Rue Paul Bert,
75011 Paris

Bofinger, in the 4e, is a personal favourite.. The oldest brasserie in Paris - est. 1864 - a few steps from the 'must visit' Place des Vosges and Place de la Bastille, Bofinger is considered to be the "most beautiful brasserie in Paris" with its classic Belle Epoque setting.
Bearing in mind where you're eating, the set menu is v reasonable.

Another favourite if you just want to take the weight off your feet is the snug Taverne Henri IV.
13 Place du Pont-Neuf
Paris 1e

They serve terrines, pâtés, rillettes and charcuterie etc with pain poilâne.. with some excellent regional wines.

I've recommended the Hippopotamus chain before - they used to be consistently reliable for good steaks - but they've gone down the pre-cooked food route. :( We broke a journey at a Hippo in Tours in April and - well, never again. [-x

Terminus Nord is on my list of places to try.. one of these days..

We were in Paris last weekend for the TdF stage. Had a recommendation form a neighbour in Yonne who is a Parisien, and he came up trumps...
He suggested :-
http://www.au-vieux-comptoir.com/acces.html
Between Rue de Rivoli and the River, about 15 mins walk from the Louvre. We ate their Saturday night, worth booking, it gets busy - but this was the final tdf stage weekend. Great food and wine, and friendly accommodating staff. We had Fish, Salads, Steaks and deserts between us, and all were excellent. We came away thinking we'd use it again soon, always a good sign.
On Sunday lunchtime we happened across:
http://www.paris-bistro.com/choisir/par ... toria.html
Just off the Ave Champs elysees, which is reflected in the price of course, but again we'd go back. As above, the food we chose was first rate - Salads, but good sized meals - but we noticed when we returned in the evening to drink, that the steaks too - or maybe beef short ribs, hard to see from our table - also looked promising.
We'd recommend either of these, and hope you get the quality of service we did.

Bon repas!
