Le Trumilou

Le Trumilou

Despite the unending appearance of new and trendy spots that are on everyone's radar for one minute, then gone the next, there are places in Paris that have been trustworthy stalwarts for decades. One of these is Le Trumilo, a bistro owned by the same family for more than 30 years, and located on the banks of the Seine, not far from the Hotel de Ville. With its walls covered with old frying pans and pots, it is more reminiscent of a French countryside eatery than a restaurant in the heart of the metropolis. But simplicity is also what makes le Trumilou so charming, a fact that has not gone unnoticed by the locals (who, uncharacteristically for Paris, make up the majority of the diners here) and tourists alike (thanks to social networks and blogs, “secret places” are no longer secret). Seated at very simple tables, you will be served just as simple, filling and delicious French food – “just like mum used to make”, that is, if you were lucky enough to have a French mum: scrumptious duck in a prune sauce, tender entrecôte, veal sweetbreads, and meat tartar, for which the mayonnaise is whipped up table-side. Basically, everything is authentic and “by the book”. The portions are generous and the prices are very reasonable; and it's always been like that here, despite the star chefs and gastronomic fads coming and going at full speed just a few streets down. The same goes for the house wine – good quality at a modest price. There are two dinging rooms at Le Trumilou, so if you want to get a table in the main one (with a view of the Seine), we recommend you make reservations.
