Le Vin Qui Danse restaurant deep in the historic heart of Paris' 5th arrondissement, near the Sorbonne, is a fabulous concoction of ancient surroundings, modern furnishings, topnotch daily-changing menu and a blistering wine list of more than one hundred bottles. There is a regular programme of wine tastings, intriguing for both expert and amateur. The 17th century cellar features exposed stone walls and informal seating, while the ground floor main dining room has ancient beams, sleek red banquettes and a marvellous fresco on the ceiling. The traditional French menu honours the market and the seasons, with dishes like tuna and salmon tartare with salad and veg, or roast breast of duck a l'orange. A variety of platters accompany your sampling of wines, and a Sunday brunch is popular too.
