You can really fell the Italian taste. There’s a smoking place inside and it could be a little cleaner. The service was amazing, all waiters patience with the English language. I absolutely recommend the Nutella Tiramissu, that is big (probably good to share).

In the heart of the 14th arrondissement, this is a very comfortable place to have a meal. Service is friendly and the menu is familiar bistrot food. They have a nice selection of beers on tap and at least in autumn they have Oysters every day. The food was quite tasty. It had a lively crowd the evening we were there and seems to each time we pass. We had an enjoyable evening and would go back.

Nice place, with typical French food. Not so expensive for París. The dishes are large, I will recommend sharing a cheese plate and some wine.

We really enjoyed the food at Le Pretexte. We started off with the Burrata entree which was delicious - super creamy cheese with arugula and tomatoes perfectly dressed with a balsamic vinaigrette and basil. Our mains were seared scallops and lightly battered fish and chips. Also quite delicious. We were a little disconcerted that we weren’t shown the specials chalkboard. We didn’t even know they had one until much later. It wasn’t shown to a large group of Scots either but the French couple seated next to us later got to see it. I know it was written in French but I can actually read French just fine and I was disappointed to miss out on a special I would have really enjoyed. One of the servers definitely spoke English and could have translated it for us had we not been able to read it so we feel a little put out by this lack of consideration. Also, the restaurant is extremely poorly ventilated and all the cigarette smoke from the outdoor area wafted in the door and permeated the restaurant with an acrid sinus-burning cloud. We were seated near the rear and about as far from the outdoor area as one could be and the air was still thick with smoke. Even though the food was delicious, we’ll never go back because the smoke totally ruined the experience. The food is four stars so give it a try if you're okay with inhaling someone else's cigarettes all through dinner.

Great value. Superb fois gras. Steaks were excellent too. Good value wines. Really nice atmosphere & good service. Worth a detour.
