Tuesday to Saturday from 12:15pm to 2:30pm and from 7:30pm to 10:30pm

I discovered Restaurant Botanique by chance while running on my way to CrossFit Bastille. It looked very sleek from the outside and a quick look at the menu at the door proved the place was worth visiting. So I recommended to my friend Alan de Paulo, who lives in Paris and loves a gourmet meal and off we went for lunch, together with other friends. On the ground floor they have a bistro style menu while on the upper floor they serve a more “gastronomique” kitchen. What is very impressive is the size of their cellar, on the basement. The service was excellent, with spot on suggestions and a special flair. It is a very good restaurant with very friendly service and a great vibe. And the food is really really really good. Order their Brussel sprouts and you will change your impression of the little green veggies immediately.
