The splendid Jardin des Plantes acts as the setting for this bistro, offering its guests a green isle of tranquility amidst the hustle and bustle of the city. Its well-prepared cuisine and generous prices, all served by a pleasant staff, means it is taken by storm once the sun comes out. So, it is best to reserve if you want a table on the outdoor patio.

Piquillo farci (stuffed pepper) with fromage frais and herbs, chorizo.
Ravioli of asparagus and pine nuts, cream of pesto, parmesan and arugula.
Mousse of mascarpone and strawberries, crispy shortbread cookie.
