Les Papilles is a wine shop, tiny épicerie, and an intimate restaurant all in one. This cave à manger, or restaurant/wine shop serves hearty home-style cooking, family style to a dedicated following.
Lunch is à la carte but dinner is a no-choice, four-course prix fixe menu for a sensible €33. Portions are quite large so remember to bring your appetite!
What they do extremely well here is braised/stewed meats. But call earlier in the day to inquire about what’s on the dinner menu if you’re a fussy eater. One time I walked in to find that the main course was lamb, which sadly I’m not a huge fan of. Reservations should also be made a few days in advance.
