    We have eaten at this restaurant four times over eight years, and we have always been very pleased with the food and the ambience.… This time was completely different… The menu was small and on Saturday night had very few options, and the quality of the cooking was much worse than previously.… In addition the staff was not pleasant, perhaps because there were not enough waiters for the whole restaurant. We are very disappointed, because we always really enjoyed this restaurant and found it to be good value for our euros.

    A small unassuming restaurant with wonderful food. It was one of the best meals we had in Paris. The service was very pleasant and the setting cozy. It was a perfect last night in Paris.

    We had a wonderful time and enjoyed a varied selection of very good dishes. The fish was particularly good and the duck too. Excellent vegetables. The staff were very helpful and made us feel very welcome. We have visited occasionally over many years and have always enjoyed Le Buisson Ardent.

    Nice people and charming atmosphere. Unfortunately the food tasted like nothing. Like water. There were 4 of us and we were all disappointed.

    From the moment we arrived to a very warm welcome to the last bite of dessert Le Buisson Ardent was an absolute pleasure. We were recommended by friends and the set menu was excellent and the staff were so friendly I would happily recommend it.

    Charming restaurant that felt genuinely French, and it was a relief to be out of the tourist zone. Great wine list.

About the restaurant

"QUARTIER LATIN - The restaurant Le Buisson Ardent is placed in the beginning of the 20th century in a former post lodge of the 5th arrondissement, while retaining the entire charm of the era. With woodwork and murals, a comfortable atmosphere where you will be warmly welcomed reigns in these places.

CLASSICS REINVENTED - Are you a lover of true French Bistro cuisine? Come and discover the 'terroir' menu. Chef Arnaud Vansanten and his team know how to be innovative while respecting traditions. Now you need to choose: Scallops and their fondue of endive or confit shoulder of lamb with lemon flavor?

SPIRIT AND CONSCIENCE - Here, à la carte wines are selected by Nicolas Desnoues, the manager of the restaurant. You can trust its refined selection fearlessly and enjoy the authenticity restored to this place full of history."
