Quaint Cafe in Beautiful Neighborhood

We found La Varangue thanks to Trip Advisor. Great little cafe located in a beautiful neighborhood Southeast of the Eiffel Tower. La Harangue is located on a narrow street where the sidewalks aren't wide enough to accommodate outdoor seating. Inside it's 8-10 tables. The chef/owner was server... read more

Our family, with kids ages 7, 11, 14 and 16, had a reservation here thanks to the Rick Steves recommendation but when we showed up it looked closed. After knocking a bit, Phillipe the owner/chef poked his head out of an upstairs window and asked us to wait a minute while he got dressed. It was worth the wait! For... More

If my son had his way he would rate this 6 stars. We came early and enjoyed our meal enormously. For entrees we ordered escargot and the lobster bisque. Mains: shepherds pie with duck, duck confit and steak. Dessert a most delectable chocolate cake. This is home cooked fare that hit the spot. We are booked for tomorrow night.

Five of us visiting Paris for the first time. We ate there early during our visit and went back for our last night in Paris. Given the restaurant's size and atmosphere, we truly felt like we were invited over for a casual dinner at the Owner's home! Our food was perfect and we tried most items on the menu. Very... More

My wife and two kids ate here based on a Rick Steves recommendation in his guide book. We called and made reservations and the owner spoke enough English for us to communicate. Though we ate early enough that there was no need for reservations. The restaurant has about 5 tables and the owner cooks and serves with the help of... More

We (family of 3) visited this restaurant on our second evening in Paris while still getting over a bit of jet lag. We went early just after 6 pm and were the only ones there on a chilly February evening. We all ordered the beef bourguignon from a "formula" menu and two of us ordered entrees and the other the...

My wife & I have been frequenting La Varangue, owned & run by Philippe Mollay, for over 10 years now; we've watched Philippe's daughter, Marie-Catherine, go from skipping rope in front of the restaurant to preparing for post-secondary school. What you will find at La Varangue are the following: --a warm welcome from a long day of sight-seeing; --an intimate... More

The food is very,very good. I can vouch for the beef bourguignon and rosemary chicken, but what makes this place a truly special experience is the chef and owner, Phillipe. He is such a character and he truly loves his vocation. It was one of our most memorable meals in Paris.

We recently returned from Paris and had a very good experience at a quiet, friendly restaurant serving great beef bourguignon, a different but good lobster bisque and delicious crème brulee. Philippe, the chef/owner, couldn't have been nicer and made it a very memorable dinner in Paris.

I ate at this restaurant 7 years ago when I was in Paris and the food was excellent, so when I returned I was excited to go back. The restaurant was scheduled to open at 5:30pm and we were there at that time to eat an early dinner. He opened the doors and appeared mad that we were there! He... More
