Paris Restaurants

L'Os à Moelle

Updated 02/19/2014

Fodor's Review

Come for the early sitting at this little bistro on the edge of town, specializing in gastronomy from the Toulouse region, and you'll often discover the dining room filled with English and Japanese tourists (the waiters speak English automatically). The €28 or €32 multicourse dinner menu may account for the restaurant's popularity—there are two, sometimes three, dinner sittings each night. Of six courses, at least four are likely to be fine—but not all the chef's

ideas work, such as warm oysters in herb butter that fail to preserve the taste of the sea. Waiters plunk even the higher-priced bottles of wine on the table without waiting for the customer to swill and slurp. Still, these problems seem to be minor judging by the ever-crowded tables.

Your next favourite restaurant

I've been going to L'Os a Moelle every so often when I was in Paris and wanted to guarantee a good night out. The service can be a little so-so (they can get very busy), but it's always warm and kind. The decor is chintzy in a charming way, it doesn't seem to be a focus of the restaurant. The crowd, however, make up for it, enthusiastically eating and chatting. The food is by far the highlight - far more sophisticated and elegant than the price

would indicate. The five course menu leaves you looking forward to your next visit, hopefully with enough time to digest in between!

Lovely & Helpful

I loved this restaurant. After my husband and I made internet reservations using a service in the US and then arrived to find out we had made reservations at some other restaurant, the host graciously offered the only table left in the house--the one holding the featured bottles of wine and menu broard. He quickly cleared it and then re-set it beautifully. He then explained the extensive and innovative menu---food that was both simple and complex

at the same time--cold asparagus soup with crispy proscuitto and homemade croutons poured at the table, foie gras on toast triangles with caviar, red mullet fish with capers, veal tenderloin with whipped poatatoes, poached pears with ice cream. It was delicious. The servers were wonderful and asked if each course was ok. The host helped select lovely wine pairing for a very reasonable price. Very Lovely!

Vuelve a su buen trabajo

Este estupendo cocinero estaba "dormido en los laureles" ha vuelto al trabajo honesto. La descripción de Fodor's no se corresponde con la realidad, la comida comprende una entrada, un plato principal y un postre que deben ser escogidos en una carta que comprende, generalmente, seis variaciones de cada uno.

Amazing food for an exceptional value

This was easily the best restaurant on our recent trip to Paris. The wait staff was very friendly to Americans, the pace was perfect and the food was flawless. Make reservations, as it was packed by 8pm. Very easy to walk to from the Balard metro stop.
