Casa Olympe Bistro and Restaurant in Paris

Dominique Versini is better known as Olympe and is one of the very few female chefs that has become an acclaimed chef with celebrity status and has now written four cook books.

Although she originally ran a Michelin starred restaurant, in 1993 she opened the Casa Olympe, which is more like a bistro than a traditional restaurant and is small, cosy and only seats around 30 people at a time, but asked for it not to be evaluated for any Michelin rating.

Casa Olympe Bistro and Restaurant

Yet the food here is of Michelin standards and based upon the Corsican cuisine with innovations, this superb little bistro in the 9th Arrondissement of Paris has become ever so popular over the years and reservations have become a must.

She was among one of the first chefs in Paris to create the concept of 'New Bistro' with a menu that consisted of original generously served dishes that were based on fresh quality produce but with ingenuity.

Casa Olympe features the famous roast shoulder of lamb for two by Dominique Versini, her ravioli of langoustines, which is basically lobster-like small shellfish, her large pot of wild c?pe mushrooms, her scallops and many other dishes that are all inspired by the Mediterranean cooking, especially the cuisine of Corsica.

Other items you may see on the menu from time to time are a potato salad laced with this truffles, squash soup with chestnut and foie gras, grilled aubergine with a tomato sauce and melted Corsican cheese, beef cheeks in a chive vinaigrette, smoky eggplant, etc.

Casa Olympe is that quaint and typical bistro style restaurant with its red walls and oil paintings, plus close tables that makes for a friendly cosy atmosphere, and a place where you will never forget, and you will even see other chefs dining!
