La Fee Verte, Rue de la Roquette

Thank you all very much for your comments and recommendations, or in some cases warnings!

La Fee Verte, Rue de la Roquette

Hmmm that's what I feared. The only Absinthe I've tried so far was 'Toulouse Lautrec' bought in Prague (not sure if it was French made or Czech), and you're right it was very aniseed-like in taste. I was expecting the taste of the wormwood to come through, like it does in Moroccan tea.
Will pop into Fee Verte but probably won't stop for food then ...

Can anyone recommend the food at the above?

I can find listings for La Fee Verte as a bar, apparently it (as its name suggests!) specialises in Abinsthe which I would like try. However, the listings also says it does food ... however I haven't come across many reviews of the food. Has anyone here been, & if so is it somewhere you recommend?

Recommendations for 11th arr. in Paris?

Thank you for all those recommendations. Certainly aim to try Melac, but probably not Bistro Paul Bert - that whole street seemed a bit too self-consciously trendy from the sound of it, anyway.
Has anyone heard of La Fee Verte bistro - was thinking of stopping in there for a glass of Absinthe, but don't know what the food's like.
Another place i heard of that's very good and I understand has been going for some time is Chez Ramulaud.

Thanks for that, will keep Le Villaret in mind - I have heard good things about it too, so may well be worth the 50 euro on our last night perhaps.

Recommendations for 11th arr. in Paris?

We will be visiting Paris shortly, staying in the 11th, near Voltaire. I've heard that in general lunch offers a better deal than evening meals - however we are planning to eat out 'reasonably' in the evening - we would like to sample traditional french 'bistro' fare, in local restaurants that hopefully won't be touristy! Also, we don't really want to spend more than 30euro per head plus wine (we may go for house carafe, or splurge).

I have done a bit of research and my 'shortlist' includes: Melac; La Muse Vin; Les Belles Miettes; Au Vieux Chene, Le Chateaubriand, Chez Paul, and La Dame Brune.

I would be very grateful if anyone provide me with feedback on them? Is it wise to book? Are there others of similar price and ambiance that people could recommend in the 11th?
