Plate of octopus, pumpkin (l.), ©Bombance

In a period where everything is increasing, we have found something to indulge in with good value for money.

At Bombance, the new address on rue des Blancs-Manteaux, we have lunch for 28 euros (starter menu, main course, dessert) while enjoying a bistronomic and elegant French menu, with local and seasonal products prepared by a chef thirty-year-old who passed through the Régalade and the Grand Véfour.

In the evening it's à la carte. It's gourmet. It's more expensive. Starters from 16 to 18 euros, dishes between 36 and 47 euros. But it's worth it, as much for the quality of the dish as for the warm, intimate, family, relaxed but chic atmosphere. All in a decor where wood meets old stone, under subdued lighting. The wine list ? It is affordable. The cheapest bottle is 24 euros. By the glass, there is a Chenin de Loire at €7,50 or a Corbières at €9. But also great wines.

That day, we started with the pumpkin velouté, very subtle. Continued with a perfectly cooked scorpion fish fillet and leek fondue. Finished off with a flawless homemade crème caramel. The vegetable plate is beautiful and satisfying with its potatoes, colored carrots, parsnips and beets placed harmoniously on a mash.

We felt something reassuring while having lunch at Bombance. It is a place where generations mix. Some are there for a tête-à-tête, others for a business meal; a little further on, on the large rectangular table, there is a table of friends recommending a tour. “We wanted to create a warm place, we want people to feel happy with us,” says Louis, one of the three friends, who set up the business with Guillaume and Paul, nicely. Winning trio.

It's a clear place and well framed like a film photo. Normal, one might say, since this café-restaurant also has a bookstore section dedicated to photography with quality, sometimes rare works – selected by different curators such as Christine Barthe, the photo manager…
