Le P’tit Troquet Review – Bistro Restaurant close to the Eiffel Tower, Paris

Foie-grois, duck confit and creme brûlée are just a few of the highlights on the menu at Le P’tit Troquet. If you are looking for a cosy, traditional restaurant close to the Eiffel Tower (10 minutes walk) with authentic French cuisine, then I highly recommend this bistro.

Le P’tit Troquet is a very small bistro restaurant situated on a side street, close to the Eiffel Tower. It is not a restaurant you would walk past and think to go in which is probably worthwhile as you must book a reservation. Quite a few people were turned away while we ate.

We were seated at a table by the window by a waitress who spoke better English than my French! We went for the 33 Euro menu, which had a good variety of choices for a three course meal.

Jon went for the Salmon Tarter with Apple and crispy Fennel as a starter. It was beautifully presented and he loved it. I skipped the starter and settled for a glass of red wine, Sancerre, my fave.

For the main, I went for the Roasted Lamb Shank with Rosemary. It was beautiful. The lamb fell of the bone and the mashed potato was delicious. Whenever we eat mashed potato, Jon and I always remember a dinner we had at a place called KiKi’s in El Gouna, Egypt, in 2005. We still talk about that mash and this one was just as good. I am a fussy mashed potato eater. As you can probably tell!

For dessert I had the Very Mellow Chocolate Cake with Pistachio Cream Sauce. How amazing does this look? The cake was lovely and the pistachio sauce complemented it perfectly.

Jon went for the Pear and Almond Tartlet served with Almond Oil Ice Cream and once again, the presentation was impeccable.

We had a wonderfully romantic dinner at Le P’tit Troquet. The food was incredible yet quite simple and not fussy at all.

Jon proposed that night, so this restaurant holds special memories in my heart. We will certainly return.
