You might have thought that burgers would have become passé in Paris by now, one hipster fixation too far – even we were starting to feel ennui. But then, caught short in Montmartre with a hangover, we discovered Ruisseau. Drawn in by their pretty outdoor terrace, we discovered a menu featuring a dozen different burgers for €12 with chips and salad included – yes, that's no extra charge for fries. Even more incredible, it's the good stuff – homemade bread, and the top quality meat comes from traditional French farms, certified rich in Omega 3.

The recipes are mostly classic (cheeseburger, BBQ, blue cheese, chicken) though there are a few originals thrown in for good measure (a veggie version with a chickpea patty, goat's cheese, tartare and so on). If you're indecisive, you can have two mini-burgers of any two flavours for €14. If you needed any more convincing, remember that before coming to rest here, Ruisseau's burgers were stars of the Marché des Enfants Rouges.

Beyond the burgers, there are plenty of other reasons to dine here: the smiling service, the peaceful sunny terrace in summer, the rest of the menu (salads, carpaccios, tartares, club sandwiches, quesadillas, nachos and charcuterie boards to share, etc.), the cocktails, the good beers, the homemade desserts. A sound discovery and, despite being low-key, a place with everything to please.

After seeing so many positive reviews for this place, I was convinced that it must be another trendy, overpriced, hipster trap! I was so wrong! Le Ruisseau is now my favorite burger joint in Paris! They use quality ingredients, the prices are reasonable and the vibe is lively and friendly (plus they play hip-hop music)! I enjoyed the most amazing cheeseburger (with a generously sized beef patty) from the bar, where all the action takes place! Their mint iced tea is delicious too! Will be back soon to try their desserts...they have cheesecake!!!
