The Parisians love their bistros. How does a croque-monsieur – a French variation of the baguette sandwich with cheese and ham – in the Bar du Marche sound? Or a slice of quiche in La petite Maison Dans La Cour? This little restaurant is hidden away in a charming courtyard very close to Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral. You can also enjoy traditional dishes and fantastic wines in the restaurant Memere Paulette.
