At Capet, the menu strikes the perfect balance between simplicity and variety. It’s concise enough not to overwhelm yet diverse enough to cater to all tastes. Moreover, they frequently update their specials board with enticing off-menu dishes. But here’s a pro tip: Don’t miss their seasonal game dishes if you’re visiting during hunting season – they’re exceptional.
One of the highlights of Capet is their rice dishes. Forget about falling into the tourist trap of a mediocre paella. Capet serves up unconventional rice dishes that will blow your mind with their intense flavors. This is a kitchen that prides itself on meticulously crafted sauces and bases, a rarity in today’s culinary scene.
The restaurant itself is as varied as its menu. Whether you’re perched at the bar facing the open kitchen, seated at high or low tables, or nestled in one of their more intimate rooms (they even have a cozy private space perfect for a more secluded meal), the ambiance is always welcoming.
Capet’s staff is the cherry on top of your dining experience. They’re discreet yet incredibly friendly, making you feel at home. Although it’s not usual for them to offer half portions, it’s worth asking – if they can, they will happily accommodate your request. Next time you’re exploring the Gothic Quarter, make sure to pop into Capet for a meal that’s anything but ordinary.
