    The service was excellent. We spoke English, and the server was kind, provided a menu in English (which we didn't expect or ask for), and walked us through everything. He was responsive to the nut allergies of my partner, and the food was fantastic. We recommend highly, what a wonderful experience.

    The food was absolutely delicious. The small team looked after us very well. Small menu with interesting ingredients and all dishes we saw looked well presented and mouth watering.

    It was such a perfect night for us. We -as asian couple- were worried that many tourists from asia experienced racism through a trip, especailly in restaurants(all kind of dining). However, it's gone when we entered that cozy bistrot! The service was perfect and ,without doubt, all foods were excellent. I really really want to try other menu as well. I will definitely visit again when arriving Paris. Thanks all. Merci!

    A delightful restaurant and just the place for a very Parisian lunch after getting off the train from London. Beautifully cooked fish. Very friendly and efficient staff. We'll go again!

    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this small creative restaurant. Both the food and service were fabulous. It was a little tricky to find, even with a GPS.

    First time diners. The food was absolutely superb, particularly the haddock cream sauce with the veal which was so innovative but such a perfect accompaniment. Each course was a delight. Staff were attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Cannot recommend highly enough.

    This restaurant did not disappoint, I did alot of research of places to go and I'm so glad I picked this one. The service was incredible, special mention to Simon who was so great at explaining what everything was and making the experience enjoyable. Cannot recommend it enough.

    We wanted to celebrate our daughter’s 18th birthday at a special place in Paris and we were not disappointed with our choice to go to Bistrot Instinct. From the very start we were welcomed with a friendly smile and we were made very much at home. Our daughter is anaphylactic to peanuts and dairy. Our waiter was attentive when we explained her allergies and suggested how they could vary the menu in order to accommodate. This made us feel reassured that the food served to us would be appropriate. Our meals were amazing and we throughly our dinner. We would highly recommend this restaurant.
