Meaning ‘Paris’ in old Parisian slang, the name of this restaurant gives you a pretty good idea of what you’ll find inside. Le Pantruche is a typically Parisian old-style bistro harkening back to the 1930s or 1940s with its large bar, low lighting, banquettes, and mirror-covered walls. Sit down for a meal and be immersed in the Paris of a different era.

Discreetly located in a quiet street away from the hustle and bustle of the nearby Place Pigalle, the façade of this small restaurant almost goes unnoticed. Don’t let its unremarkable exterior fool you though; Le Pantruche is acclaimed as one of the best bistros in Paris.

Indeed, this restaurant is an absolute must for food lovers in the Sopi (South of Pigalle) area.

Inside one of the best bistros in Paris, Le Pantruche

In the kitchen, Chef Franck Baranger delivers a scrumptious and precise cuisine, using only the best fresh products for his traditional French recipes.

Their specialties are grand classics of bistro cuisine: tête de veau croustillante (crispy veal head, and although it might not sound appetizing, it is a delicacy loved by many gourmets), canard maturé (matured duck), and the soufflé au Grand Marlier for dessert. Bon appétit!

Open Monday–Friday 12:30–2:00 pm, 7:30–9:30 pm. Closed Saturday and Sunday.
