Le Grand Colbert, Paris

Extract from Paris En Famille.

The archetypal Paris bistro, ornately decorated with wooden booths, palms and clusters of globe lamps. It’s a classic, favoured by tourists, but locals too, especially families for whom it’s perfect, with quick service, a wide menu and enough ambient noise that no one needs to feel self-conscious.
