Au Bon Accueil

I'm trying to choose a restaurant within walking distance of the apartment we are renting for our first night in Paris (a thursday night in September). The choices are:

Au Bon Accueil
Au Petit Sud Ouest
La Fontaine de Mars
Au Petite Tonneau

Our criteria is great traditional food/menu and classical bistro ambience - nothing too modern or contemporary for our first evening but at the same time don't want to be somewhere that is very touristy either. Can anyone steer me towards which one I should choose and why - veering towards Au Bon Accueil at this stage but hard to find many reviews on it.

Other restaurants we will be booking for our 1 week stay are: Chez Dumonet, Chez L'ami Jean and La Regalade St Honore.

A great favourite of ours from previous visits is Chez Georges on Rue du Mail - so this might give you an idea of the sort of food/ambience we are after.

Thanks in advance!

L'ami Jean
27 Rue Malar, Paris, Île-de-France 75007, FR

La Fontaine de Mars
129 Rue Saint-Dominique, Paris, Île-de-France 75007, FR
