Voted by 400 French gastro-journalists in 2006 as the best wine bistro in France, this has been a must-visit restaurant since it opened. Seating only 30 people, Fabienne Escoffier produces a bargain menu and classic dishes like jambon persillé and roast pigeon. Simple but delicious, the menu and à la carte choices are chalked on blackboards. The wine list is monumental with nearly 800 references. Wines can also be purchased from a small shop next door. As a favourite haunt of growers and merchants, Pierre Escoffier gets good allocations from the best domaines besides buying older vintages from private cellars.

Useful information: Menu: €24; à la carte from €35. Open lunchtimes 12.15-13.00 and evenings 19.15-21.00, but only on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Closed January and August.
