I had a guest from Israel in Paris, Shlomo, and I reserved us a table at Rino, a gastronomic bistro French-Italian fusion style restaurant. It’s located in the 11th district which seems to be filling with cute little restaurants and pubs. The place is tiny, squeezing in about 40 guests maximum, the luckiest got a table outside, it was the perfect weather to enjoy the evening breeze, and whoever reserved a table of four could ask to sit in front of the open (tiny) kitchen. We did not get any of the special seats but nonetheless had a fantastic dinner.
In one word: recommended. In some more words: we truly enjoyed this dinner. The good: menu of 4 courses (entree-fish-meat-dessert) for 41 euro – a barging, 2 of the courses were really good, wine matching is super and the atmosphere is fun and relaxed. The bad: only one set menu (no choice at all), the service was slow because the two waitresses had a lot of work to do but we didn’t mind having our dinner slowly, also it’s crowded which some people have a hard time with, the dessert was the downfall in our opinion.
When I told my mom I had a good time with Shlomo she said: “with Shlomo it’s always fun!”.
