1st Arrondissement



5 Rue Molière,


Situated within the tourist-site triumvirate of the Tuilieries, the Louvre, and the Palais Royal, Cibus offers upscale Italian dining in an atmosphere so warm and homey you'll find it hard to believe you're dining out. The interior space is tiny, seating no more than 16. A smattering of lamps and a handful of 1920's mirrors hanging on cream-colored walls cultivate an ambiance that's simple but elegant, tasteful but comfortable. All of the dishes are organic, seasonal, and beautifully plated, and the menu changes daily. Any sort of mushroom pasta (locally-grown mushrooms and pasta that's perfectly al dente) is a good choice.
