Paris Restaurants--Auberge De Auberge, IL Loit Vache', orAngelina Maison De L' Afrique

On my way for a quick couple days in Paris and a friend of mine recommended the following restaurants...any thoughts on his suggestions? I know that they are not widely known places---but, then again...I really like the "off the beaten path" finds!

IL Loit Vache'
35 Rue Saint-Louis en I'lle
75004 Paris
France
Metro: Saint-Paul

Auberge De Auberge
7 Rue de Jarente
75004 Paris
France
Metro: Saint-Paul
Recommend: Cassoulet

Angelina Maison De L' Afrique
226 Rue de Rivoli
75001 Paris
France
Metro: Tuileries
Recommend: Chocolat Chaud African

Thanks...

I don't know the others, but Angelina's is a very well-known, very touristed ladies who lunch and do afternoon coffee and dessert spot-I was there again this past September (after an almost 10 year hiatus) and it was quite a bit better than when I had been there last-(I understand it was bought by the folks who own the Brasserie Lipp) their desserts are quite good, but I'm not into that chocolate chaud thing-I like their pastries. A good spot for lunch, particularly if you want to go to the Musee des Artes Decoratifs-which is just down the street.

Angelina's is famous for the hot chocolate, and their Mont Blanc desert.

The first restaurant you mention L'ilot Vache, does not get very good reviews:

Could not find Auberge du Auberge on either Google or Pagesjaunes.

There a MANY other restaurants mentioned on this Forum.

Enjoy Paris!

Peyton18,
No need to post the same question twice!
I answered your other thread:

<<Actually, these are fairly well known, but unfortunately your friend may have given you the names a little bit mixed up.

They should be:
L'Ilot Vache
Auberge de Jarente
Chez Angelina

The only one that I've been to is Chez Angelina, which is very well-known, and the hot chocolate there is out-of-this-world!

I have heard that the Auberge de Jarente is very good for southwestern French/ Basque food, with excellent cassoulet.>>

Actually, Marcy, it's just ANGELINA-there's no "chez"

L'Auberge de Jarente gets mixed reviews from Parisian clientele on cityvox.com: http://tinyurl.com/39ed9a

Search on the site for L'Ilot de Vache and you will find generally more positive reviews. http://tinyurl.com/2vuu2r


The venerable Angelina is well regarded by reviewers on Cityvox.

I find Cityvox a useful site. Type the name of a restaurant in the "rechercher" box to find what you are after. The "avis" tab leads you to the reviews. The "pratique" tab provides practical info.

On the right hand side of the page is a box where you can search for restaurants by quartier, cuisine, price, and other criteria.

Very useful for finding good restaurants in the areas you intend to frequent!
