Reviews of interest

A Nous Paris (2015) “Passation en toute discrétion pour cette institution du bien manger et du bon boire. Magali et Delphine, à la tête de cette maison depuis 2009 ont confié les clés à Philippe Marques dont le CV ravira les amateurs de bouteilles: chef sommelier au Mandarin Oriental à Londres puis chez Senderens, place de la Madeleine, pendant dix ans et plus récemment au Prince de Galles. Excusez du peu.”

These reviews are from the previous owner

Le Figaro (2012) “… ce bistrot d’élite valse régulièrement avec les chefs. En espérant donc que se maintienne le petit dernier, puisé au filon nippon, ancien de l’excellent Stella Maris et fameux de maîtrise dans son genre néoclassique.”

Alexander Lobrano (2010) “Aside from Dufroux’s very good contemporary French bistro cooking… what I love about this place is that it proves that hip young Parisians really do know and like good food beyond the identikit menus at the Costes Brothers tentacular empire.”

John Talbott (2010) “The Bistro Volnay is a place I’ve been to 3 times in as many years under 3 different chefs…”I approached the place with trepidation – fancy entry, all suits and ties and all men, most (around us) speaking English, an imposing menu, with hefty supplements for anything not on the “menu.”

Le Figaro (2010) “… un bistrot que nous avions adoré lors de son lancement…”

Le Figaro (2010) “… une vraie belle allure de bistrot qui tamise en volumes contemporains le Paris des années 1920-1930-1940…”

  1. Lovely food .. truffled artichoke soup and veal in particular – plus lovely decor but .. wow .. what shocking service. The waitress in charge SOOO did not want to be there to the point of intense disinterest and rudeness. For their sake, I hope she finds a new career before she ruins the work of a great equipe ..
