Au Vieux Paris Restaurant

The Au Vieux Paris is a quaint, romantic restaurant that is located in a very old building that dates back to 1512 when it was built as school and at first glance it just looks like an old house like many others in the same area, yet has an old fashioned charm.

The outside of the building is covered in vine and inside you will not find any straight walls, but a very old fashioned decor with large wooden tables, beautiful old plates and china that add to the feel of its history along with antique prints, the exposed stonework and the lighting by candle light.

Au Vieux Paris Restaurant

This is a family run restaurant that has a friendly atmosphere yet is not that well known due to it being situated on a back street on the Ile de la Cite where there are lots of very old buildings, but it is only a street behind the Notre Dame Cathedral and is a great place to relax after you have visited this famous Paris monument.

At the Au Vieux Paris you will be able to experience very typical and traditional French cuisine with seasonal specialities and they also provide ingredients from the farms in the Aveyron area in the South of France for classic dishes such as duck breast a l'orange, snails with garlic butter, pan-fried foie gras and boeuf bourguignon, which is one of their specialities and is basically beef cooked in a red wine sauce.   

Now when it comes to the wine, this is an unusual concept compared to most of the restaurants in Paris, as they invite you down to the cellar in order to choose the bottle you desire, but they are also very helpful at selecting one that would pair well with your food.

But after a meal, you need to walk along the River Seine to get back to whatever Paris hotel you are staying at, which can also be very romantic, yet if you decide to have an early evening meal, you may even have time to do some cruising on the River Seine in one of the tour boats such as the Bateau Mouches, which is a great experience when the city and its famous landmarks are all lit up at night.

Restaurant Guide Key Points

The Au Vieux Paris is open on a Tuesday to Friday and on Sunday, from noon until 2pm and then from 6.30pm through to 10.30pm.

But on a Monday and a Saturday it is only open in the evening from 6.30pm through to 10.30pm.

They have a three course set menu for lunchtime as well as a set menu for an evening or you could choose from the A la Carte option. The cost at lunch is approximately 40€ not including drinks and is an approximate cost of 55€ of an evening, again not including drinks, but the A la Carte option is of course more expensive and to give you a rough idea, the cost for a main course can range from around 22€-up to about 34€. 

There is no particular dress code and although it is suitable for all the family, you will find the Au Vieux Paris restaurant is a venue more for couples and although reservations are not essential it is recommended that you book, especially for an evening meal.

Also, located in the 4th Arrondissement of Paris on the island called the Ile de la Cite in the middle of the River Seine you either get there via bridge such as the Pont Neuf or you need the Metro station called the Cité.
