Critics' choice
South-west Paris

The residential 15th arrondissement has more than its fair share of great bistros, and Jadis confirms the trend. In this grey-painted dining room with red curtains and striped Basque napkins, young chef Guillaume Delage serves a gently updated take on classic French cuisine (Jadis means 'in days gone by'). The pared-down presentation of dishes such as snails in puff pastry with oyster mushrooms and romaine lettuce lets each element speak for itself. Don't miss the wonderful cheese trolley or the deconstructed desserts.
