3-4 dining recs in Paris - "reasonably" priced (whatever that means!!!)

Would love to hear from others as to recommended dining places in Paris. We will be there at the end of this year. Although we will be in Paris for 1 week, we are the flying to the Maldives to continue our honeymoon which will “stretch” the bank account somewhat (or just put a rather large dent in the credit card). For this reason, any top-end restaurants are out. Also, this is primarily a “tourist” trip rather than a “foodie” trip so we’ll probably look at 3-4 nice places to dine and, other than that, will either buy food from the markets to prepare ourselves or just eat at a place which is convenient to wherever we are at the time (hopefully avoiding too many tourist traps).

To be honest, my SO is a somewhat “safe” eater and she doesn’t eat pork either. Ham, yes... bacon, yes... pork, no. Go figure! She mainly eats chicken, seafood, lamb. Hopefully this doesn’t restrict us too much as to options, especially with set menus.

Anyway, here are some places that I’ve shortlisted so far (in no particular order), depending on bookings of course:

Chez l’Ami Jean
Violin d’Ingres
Les Fables de la Fontaine
Spring (perhaps wishing thinking re bookings??)
Le Regalade St Honore

Would love to hear other Hounds’ thoughts on whether the places listed above sounds suitable to our requirements, as well as any other places that we ought to consider.

We are staying on Ave de la Bourdonnais in the 7th but don’t want this to limit any recommendations. We are happy to travel as long as it is relatively central, and don’t want to spend all of our dining time in the one neighbourhood anyway.

Look forward to hearing from you.
