A la Biche au Bois near Bastille is a down-to-earth restaurant that I think does really tasty and authentic French food at a fair price. I would definitely go there again. After arriving in Paris and walking along Promenade Plantée, I decided to go somewhere in the evening not too far from where I stayed. I ended up at A la Biche au Bois in the 12th arrondissement. I started my dinner with a special of the day, mixed pâté of pork and rabbit. It was an interesting combination and I did enjoy it together with the nice bread they served with it. I even gave in when the waiter suggested an aperitif - it was my first evening in Paris after all. The drink was based on red wine, mixed with black currant juice and plum schnaps - a pretty boozy way to start dinner. I ordered a white wine as a light option following the strong aperitif. It was not as dry as I would have liked, but it was alright. I wanted to eat a traditional main and went for the coq au vin. It was a rather big portion with a very tasty, rich sauce and tender chicken pieces. The boiled potatoes were surprisingly soft, they were almost melting in the mouth - delicious. I must admit that the pot was a bit too much for me, but I tried my best, while unfortunately spilling some sauce on my shirt... And because I was in France, I could not leave the restaurant without tasting their cheeses. The friendly waiter explained the options they had, and I quite enjoyed the little selection. Towards the end, service became a little bit slow, but overall I did like the atmosphere and the staff. There was one very young waiter, one older one who was never quite happy with whatever the younger did and a lovely, funny waitress. They were all pretty different and having them all around and watch them working guaranteed an entertaining dinner. Really, A la Biche au Bois is a great, rustic restaurant that will fill you up with tasty food, while not being very expensive.

Just left there. WILL GI BACK. FIX PRICE FOUR COURSE DINNER WAS EXCELLENT. Pheasant and pork pate with salad was exceptional. Steak, fries, cheese board and dessert were all very good. Had no reservation but we were seated minutes though the small dining room was jammed. House wine was also full bodied and very tasty however the glass seemed rather small. Staff was warm and welcoming. Total cost for two with 4 glasses of wine, 87€. All in all our best meal yet in France. We will go back.

Coq du vin - coq meat was dry and hard. Flavour did not penetrate the meat. Gravy did not have sufficient flavour.

Precious french style service. Tiny tiny restaurant so packed with customers. Good atmosphere. Lots of local game in season for dinner. Lovely cheese platter.

My beef was pretty indigestible,( in fact the worst fillet i've ever had) though the sauce was good. The cheese board was excellent! The waitress was lovely and very helpful, but the chef/waiter seemed to be in rather an irritable mood. He certainly seemed irritated that we didn't order the set menu. It does seem, as someone here has already said, that if he likes you you're ok and if not, you're not!

Comida tradicional francesa. Ótimo Coq au Vin. Menu completo de jantar em torno de 30 euros. Para sair rolando...

Biche au bois is a super nice restaurant, which is quite small, but the mirror inside makes the whole place look bigger! The place is fantasstic because, for a reasonable price, you have a proper French meal. The best thing? The dish of cheese you get in the end!
