    @jumpersforgoalposts – while not entirely fitting your brief, the places that are part of the Costes hotel group – eg Café Marly (at the Louvre and open from 8am) and Georges (on the roof of the Pompidou centre) are on the Plat list, spectacularly French in attitude with staff that are mainly real or wannabe actors/models so different and special places. The two locations are also both very special in their own ways. The food is quite simple but actually really good and the nature of their clientèle means that much of the food is vegetarian and is very much part of the menu rather an afterthought.

    For that amount of credit and good Paris rooftop views, I’d go to “creatures”. It’s on the roof of Galeries Lafayette, walking distance from Opera.

    We tried it last fall. It wasn’t bad, the service was obnoxious as the place is very popular.

    Service is Paris always seems to be terrible. They seem to be of the opinion that you should be glad that they are allowing you to pay for their substandard food.

    I’m afraid it’s just part of the ‘exception française’, their appalling xenophobia and a fundamental objection to having to speak another language. Their conduct changes as soon as one speaks to them in native level French.

    We have lived in France and visit regularly, so it just makes us laugh now. Rude service and just so many restaurants and hotels smelling of bogs and/or damp, dog poo on the pavements and terrible drain smells everywhere (far worse than China) just reminds us we are back in France.
