If you ever visit the charming Butte aux Cailles hilltop in the 13th arrondissement (no Chinatown towers in this area, thank you!) you won't miss this loud and lively little Basque bistro. Always packed full of young locals and students, you’ll squeeze in tight at the checkered tablecloth covered tables and get to know your neighbors in this down-to-earth setting. Specialities include duck, cassoulet and the largest salads you’ve ever seen, served in giant bowls. Décor is no-frills and the service friendly, but they don’t accept credit cards.
