No frills and all fun
La Cantine de Belleville4
Why locals love it
A Belleville institution for very good reason. Fast, efficient service with plenty of banter and no bull! All plats are 10 euros, 12 for two courses or 14 for three, day or night. A huge venue that spans three shopfronts, it also features an underground basement with live music.
Why you should visit it
The food is solid, generous and very tasty - and though you won't be raving about light, delicate textures, you'll be content! The atmosphere is absolutely hopping - every evening of the week, locals will be packed in here to eat, drink and laugh.
The service will be very brisk but friendly - just don't ask for modifications!
