Questions about specific Paris restaurants

Hello,
Everybody. I found the following in Eating and Drinking in Paris, and they do sound enticing, but I am curious IF ANYBODY on this forum has eaten there:

1) LE TIMBRE (6th) M: Notre Dame Des Champs (???)
2) La Fontaine de Mars (7th) M: Ecole Militaire
3) Chez Paul (11th) M: Bastille (???) (NOT to be confused with Chex Maitre Paul in the 6th)
4) Aux Lyonnais (2nd) M: Bourse
5) Au Gamin de Paris (4th) M: St.Paul
6) La Cordonnerie (1st) M: Tuileries
One more, La Cave Gourmande, even though it is far in the 19th, M: Danube

Thank you!
Agnes

La Fontaine de Mars has been one of my favorites since my first trip to Paris in 1975.

Chez Paul is also a good one.

Have not been, but Le Timbre got an excellent write-up in Saveur magazine recently; short list of choices; good value; English chef, as I recall.

Hi agnes,

If you look up the names in the "search this forum" box, you will find what people have had to say about them, if anything.

I just arrived home with a copy of the same book; they are pretty reliable in my opinion. With that combination of Alain Ducasse and de la Brosse from L'Ami Louis at the helm, no wonder that Aux Lyonnais gets a good report! I ate here many years go and have no real memory of the place.... Thanks for directing my attention to it; I will put it on my list.
Hope you do not mind my interrupting here, Agnes, but I am also beginning to research my choices for a week this fall...

If you are not already familiar with www.chowhound.com, I will mention it here as a great source of dining information.

We very much enjoyed Aux Lyonnais. Be advised that the menu is more "interesting" than classic, and the prices are high. (Our waiter really tried to "sell" offerings we did not find all that appealing, but they may have been.) And, it was the only place ever we observed parties being asked to move upstairs for coffee and after dinner drinks so they could accommodate more covers...

La Cordonnerie is wonderful. Phone or stop by for reservations...

DH and I weren't really impressed with Aux Lyonnaise. Pretty place, but the prices were high and the food average. I agree, the menu is 'inventive' not classic which was fine with us. I've eaten in better places.
