Aux Anysetiers du Roy et des hortensias


Aux Anysetiers du Roy
pink hydrangeas!


Although the bright pink hydrangeas* were the focus of my photo, this charming restaurant set in a Medieval building has more history than can be imagined.  Serving simple, classic French fare, Madame oversees all the food preparations.  Devotees of this  non-touristy restaurant swear by the French onion soup, Cassoulet Maison,  Boeuf Bourguignon and Crème Brûlée.


Set on the quiet Île Saint Louis, 
one can step back hundreds of years
 into a building which has not changed by much 
and enjoy traditional French comfort food ...
which has not changed at all.

Hello Genie:

This sounds to be exactly our kind of place. Good, simple, traditional 'comfort' food served in unpretentious surroundings.

Could it possibly be that the flowers are those of Hydrangea macrophylla?

Nothing says spring quite like a pot full of geraniums.

So lovely! Will keep this restaurant as a "must" for my next visit to Paris. The hydrangeas add just that special
look.

Well, I think I would be quite happy with that menu and venue! Beautiful photo and oh -- sounds wonderful!

Pretty picture, but the flowers are certainly what I'd call hydrangeas too.

Gorgeous. I love hydrangeas, but hydrangeas in Paris would be even better.

The flowers look beautiful!

It's been too long since I've had beef bourguignon. It's beyond delicious.

Beautiful picture. There is no placed like Paris to get the most favorable French Onion soup. I had my very first bowl of it on my first visit to Paris. I long to return.

Alexa said...

Myam! Let's go there next time, okay?
