We've eaten at Willi's several times.....most recently May 2009. We found our most recent experience to be alright but nor great, service same. I doubt that we'll return as there are so many other places we'd rather patronize that are more welcoming. This trip I was with a female friend and my 2 adult daughters. I don't know if that made a difference or it was just an "off" night.

>Aligote: mashed taters with Contal cheese & garlic,......<

Not to be confused with Aligoté, which is a light, white wine.

Ile des Impressionistes and la Maison Fournaise
The book market at Parc George Brassens
The hammam and tea room at La Mosquée de Paris
The organic Marché des Batignolles
Le Village Suisse
Le Parc André Citroën
Le Parc Catherine-Labouré

Amorino beats Berthillon any day. And the Musée Jacquemart André is very well known, especially for its Sunday brunch.

ok ok the Musee Jaquemart is major-I just meant it is not on the usual Louvre, Rodin, Invalides,Picasso, Carnavalet, d'Orsay list. It really was years before I went beyond he usual.
Thanks to all for some great suggestions. So many restaurants so little time only 4 nights this trip

You asked about Willis Wine Bar. Yes we ate lunch there when we were in Paris in 2007. It was wonderful!!We opted for a fixed price 3 course lunch, which included appetizer, main course and dessert. This with 2 glasses wine, coffee our bill will $73.50 Euros for both of us(this included tip). The restaurant is charming, the wine list is over 250 selections by the glass and or bottle and the meal was wonderful. Most of the wines represent Bandol, Rhone, and Languedoc areas. Their site is We will be in Paris in mid September and we will definitely return for another meal.
