Dined here on September 11, 2004. with three friends. Food was excellent. Wine was superb. Ambience was very romantic. highly recommended.. very close to the Notre Dame Cathedral and a short walk along the Seine River. Why i am the first to write a review from 9 years ago is beyond me? I just the address in a purse that I used that night as i was cleaning out stuff. My apologies to the proprietors for this late review. Id love to return during the season when your wisterias are in bloom ......merci beaucoup pour une experience magnifique. . .!!! This is Paris' best kept secret.

Au Vieux Paris restaurant in the very heart of Paris, on the Ile de la Cite not two steps from Notre Dame, has history and gastronomy in its favour. Patrons Odette and Georges bring their seasonal ingredients each week from the finest organic farms in the Aveyron in southern France to create dishes like warm foie gras, duck breast a l’orange, and other classics. The restaurant is sited in an Canon’s residence constructed in 1512 and the décor – brilliantly over the top – reflects history in every detail, the heavily figured scarlet wallpaper and tented ceilings, the antique prints, the exposed stonework and rich draperies. Au Vieux Paris is terribly romantic - you’ll even have to stroll by the Seine to get home.
