Le Pantruche is a gourmet “bistro” (a bistro is an old-style Parisian café) in Paris. I had lunch there last Summer and it was very good.
Franck Baranger, le Pantruche chef favours products that are in season and from Paris Region. Here are the pros and cons of the restaurant in my opinion:
+ The most important: the meal was delicious, the dishes were original tasty
+ The pleasant café atmosphere
+ At the end of the meal, I was sated without feeling heavy
+ The restaurant service was very good.
+ The food was fresh and traceable. The waiter was able to tell us exactly where the products came from.
– The tables are very close. But at the same time it contributes to the convivial atmosphere.
– The restaurant is only open weekdays
We spent 28€ per person for a starter, a main dish and a dessert. It’s more expensive than a café but cheaper than a gourmet restaurant. My advice: the lunch fixed-price menu is more economical than à la carte dishes. Our waiter translated the menu for English-speaking clients but a dictionary could be useful if you don’t speak French. Also I would advise to book as the restaurant is quite popular.
I enjoyed the gourmet cuisine, the bistro atmosphere and the fresh products. I would be happy to go back to Le Pantruche if I have the chance.
