TESTED AND APPROVED BY THE INSIDR TEAM
Who would love it? A delightfully traditional restaurant for a gourmet dinner in the 7th district, this address is perfect for a romantic couple or a group of friends looking for a tasty & creative French meal.
What’s in it? Pottoka is a hidden gem in the cosy Rue Saint Dominique neighbourhood not too far from the Eiffel Tower. The chef specializes in South Western French cuisine, but takes great energy and adding a modern & creative twist to old recipes. If you have enough time and the budget (65€), the tasting menu is pretty incredible and really good value for money considering the quality of the ingredients used. The wine selection if also pretty amazing. Make sure to book ahead as the restaurant is small and fills up quickly especially in the evening.
What do we love best? Don’t miss the grilled Chipirons entrée. Chipirons are small squids and a specialty from the Basque country in the South West of France.
What’s the mood like? Pottoka is small, so don’t expect to have a lot of space around you. But the layout is well designed and the atmosphere is warm and cosy. The very caring staff will make you feel comfortable and help you out with the menu & wine selection
