The afternoon I arrived back in Paris from 3 weeks of travelling, I was introduced to this adorable hole-in-the-wall.
“Le Timbre” literally translates to “The Stamp” and it is most fitting for this 20-seater.
Le Timbre offers only one menu per service so unless you have major objections or any allergies, you will be having your meal as the chef intended.
€26 for a starter, main and dessert is a really good price for what you get to enjoy, as the ingredients are farm-fresh and the dishes delectably prepared. You can opt for an additional cheese plate for €8, or choose to replace your dessert with the cheese course for €5.
If you enjoy dishes well-prepared and thought through with the freshest seasonal ingredients in mind, this is a great place. The friendly and prompt service complemented the whole experience.I love it when a restaurant with a simple concept exceeds my expectations on every level!
