Situated on the River Seine's left bank, opposite Notre-Dame Cathedral, this modern rôtisserie is the brainchild of Guy Savoy, one of the country's most celebrated 3 Michelin starred chefs. The restaurant serves various types of meat and poultry expertly roasted on open flames, although there are fish and veggie options too. Diners can choose to eat in the modern wine cellar (excellent selection) or the library room, but the real pull here is the 'chimney room' with its imposing open stone fireplace which also features an open kitchen.

Opened by two passionate brothers, Arnaud and Axel, this wonderfully neo-rustic restaurant and wine bar has contributed to the street’s rise in popularity. Pairing a hearty bistro menu with an excellent wine list (150 bottles and counting), this atmospheric spot is all the better in the winter months when the charming metal hearth is ablaze.

A 1962 hangout for actors who would convene here after their nightly performances, this is one of the most romantic places in Paris. Housed in a 17th century townhouse, the candle-lit rooms are adorned with curios recalling the area’s history. Although there are many snug spots around the restaurant, you can't beat being right by the roaring fire.
