Located in an old building that has low ceilings with rustic wood
beams, which makes the interior feel cosy and inviting with a warm atmosphere, Fish la
Boissonnerie is a reasonably small Wine Bar and Bistro that is situated on the Left Bank
of the River Seine in the 6th arrondissement of Paris.
But before becoming a bistro it was actually a fish shop and to keep the memory of this,
the facade has stayed the same with its tiled mosaics, which is still very apt considering
that seafood is very prominent on the menu and is filled with specialities such as smoked
salmon, shrimps, caviar, monkfish, steamed mussels, oyster beignets, etc.
However, they do provide other options for those of you that are not so keen on fish, such
as duck breast Provencale, steak topped with foie gras accompanied by mashed potatoes with
herbs, roast lamb and potato pancake, plus some delicious desserts if you can manage!
Popular both with the locals and tourists alike, the menu itself changes daily with what
produce is available, so there is always going to be something different to tempt your
taste buds, plus there are set menu options, an A la Carte menu and there are always daily
specials written on the blackboard.
Obviously because Fish la Boissonnerie is also like one of the wine bars in Paris as well, with the very
extensive wine list comprising not just French wines, but
wines from all over Europe and a vast range of the wines
being served by the glass, plus the daily specials for a very reasonable cost, this is yet
another reason why it is so popular.
Serving both hold and cold dishes in generous portions from a really mixed style menu
including Mediterranean, Spanish, French, Provencale and Italian influences, this Paris bistro is a great place for a quick
stop or for a relaxing, yet lively and fun evening out with the family or with friends.
