David Lebovitz (2017) includes this among his Favorite Paris Restaurants and says “Every time I eat at Le Timbre, I wonder why I don’t eat at this petit restaurant more often. It’s very small (hence the name, which means “the stamp”) and features very fresh food.”
Le Fooding (2015) says that Le Timbre has “a swinging ambiance and a young chef by the name of Charles Danet in the kitchen who sends out a lunch menu of spiced and caramelized quail breast, wrapped up in cured ham to keep it tender, roasted hake with thyme, shiso leaves and borlotti beans… and a satisfying scoop of chocolate ganache, almond genoise and citrus confit. At night, the menu is even more copious. And more importantly, the wines always hit it out of the park at both lunch and dinner”
Figaroscope (2014) reports that after the departure of Le Timbre’s British chef, the new iteration has a more intimate feeling, supported by a more delicate cuisine. Expect dishes like duck breast with mashed cauliflower and onion confit.
John Talbott (2014) revisits Le Timbre after the departure of chef Chris Write and calls this “a very soft, successful landing in a cherished old spot… you won’t be disappointed by the change.”
