Lonely Planet review

One of the very few places to drink on Île de la Cité, this is a serious wine bar dating back to 1885. A tasty choice of inexpensive tartines (open sandwiches), charcuterie (cold cooked meats) and cheese platters compliment its extensive wine list, making it a lovely riverside place to drink with friends.

Predictably, it lures a fair few legal types from the nearby Palais de Justice.
