Paris restaurant discovery - Great Food/Fast/Reasonable/Ambiance/6th

Jump to last reply

I've been over in the 6th for the last week and have stayed here MANY times. I love the area but have found the resto options rather limited. But I just stumbled across a REALLY nice litte restaurant called La Bastide d'Opio at 9,rue Guisarde 75006 Paris Tel 01 43 29 01 84 open every day - www.bistrot-opio.com. And they're doing SOOOO many things right that they deserve some BIG credit.

For one thing it's open on Sunday - I got there about 2pm. And the waiters are actually friendly. And there is actually space between the tables. They have a large upstair seating and smaller down. I ordered the salmon in an herb crust with ratatouille and a salad for only 18 euros - and was so impressed that I also ordered the moelleux au chocolat - and a coffee and it totalled 27 euros.

Moelleux au chocolat is one of my absolute FAVORITE desserts in France. It's a tiny little round chocolate cake served warm with creme anglais. When you cut in to the cake - out oozes some of the richest MOST delicious chocolate sauce EVER. It's a LOT of chocolate deliciousness without all the volume.

My salmon was PERFECTLY cooked - I always order it rare - and it was served atop a perfectly fine ratatouille. And the salad was JUST right with the RIGHT amount of dressing - getting rare these days- and well seasoned.

I could tell that lots of other diners were happy with their food, too. And the ONLY thing I had to wait more than 5 minutes for was the check - but I'm cutting them slack for that - it was crowded.

I am VERY happy to pass this GREAT tip along to you. From my plate to yours!!! Enjoy. :)
