Rue du Palais-Grillet, a little street lurking in the shadows of the larger Rue de la Ré, has plenty of surprises up its sleeve!
Among them is Le Ballon, an institution for after-work drinks and evenings out with friends.
Its friendly and welcoming interior decorating adapts to suit the time of day. At lunchtime your best bet is to head for the terrace or outside (depending on the season) for the dish of the day, prepared with fresh produce.
In the evening, you'll want to sit on the leather sofas to enjoy a pleasant moment around platters full of food and tapas, or various food and wine combinations. With carefully selected new wines served by the glass every week, and more than 200 French and foreign references on the menu, Le Ballon has more than you will ever need to fill your glass!
Don't forget to drink with moderation though!
