NileGuide Expert tip:
Word has got around – better reserve if you want to be sure of a table
In a old-fashioned building and making no apology for its old-fashioned menu which lists traditional French dishes such as escargots
(snails), home-made terrine, duck confit and crème brûlée, Le Caveau du Palais is in a prime location overlooking the Pont Neuf at the end of the Ile de la Cité and handily placed near Notre-Dame. As popular with local Parisians as with visitors who like to sit on the terrace when fine weather allows, it is a real find in the centre of the city for anyone looking for good, honest bistro food with no pretensions.
