The French Paradox

The French Paradox Review

Relaxed, simple, but chic would best describe this little restaurant above a wine shop in the heart of Ballsbridge; it also describes the people of the south of France who inspired the place. Wine buffs, Francophiles, and gourmets flock here for the hearty traditional fare and Mediterranean ambience. Share the assiette le fond de barrique, a selection of charcuterie, pâté, and cheese, or perhaps indulge in a selection of cured Irish fish or a choice from the foie gras menu. Select a nice bottle from the ground-floor wine shop (mostly French labels) and sip it in situ for a mere €8 corkage fee along with a few "French tapas." Seating is limited.
