Located in the 18th arrondissement in Paris, the Bistrot de la Renaissance is much loved by film directors in search of typical old Parisian locations.
Founded in 1903, the Bistrot de la Renaissance has a singular style of decor that is inspired by the 30s and Art Deco. With its colonnades and old windows, the bistro has made a name for itself in the world of cinema. Indeed, over 20 films have been shot here by the likes of Claude Zidi (Les Ripoux) and Quentin Tarentino (Inglourious Basterds) Major film stars have also acted here including Sophie Marceau, Romy Schneider, Jane Birkin and Jodie Foster…
Once you have had a chance to admire the decor it is fun to play the film star by eating in this famous bistro. On the menu: French specialities such as boiled eggs, steaks, veal ragout (Blanquette de veau)…
A little anecdote: the curtains they hung in the bistro for Inglourious Basterds have never been taken down!
