We had made a reservation via internet and everything worked fine. Staff is friendly. Tables are tiny as always in Paris. Food quality was good but we missed "Finesse". Therefore the price seemed to high for us. Price for the bottled wine was fair.

This quaint little restaurant has pretty darn good food and the service really attentive... Any foreigners complaining about not getting good service because they're foreigners are probably terrible tourists.... Believe me I see a lot of those living in the marais. I'd go back.

We were wandering in the Marais district in Paris, actually looking for another restaurant, but it was closed on Monday night. Our criteria,for dinner, was to be small and interesting with contemporary French food. It was 7pm July 28th and we chanced upon Le Colimacon. It looked picture perfect.We had no booking, but we were able to sit upstairs by... More

We happened upon this restaurant one night on our honeymoon in Paris. We hadn't made reservations anywhere, but since it was on the earlier side, we decided to just venture out and find a nice place. Le Colimacon was about a 10 minute walk from our hotel in Le Marais. The waiter, Matthieu, greeted us upon arrival and found us... More

We had tried to reserve a spot at this restaurant 3 years ago and it was always fully booked. Tonight we took a chance and stopped by at 7:45 and got a table. The meal was absolutely top notch; one of the best if not the best restaurant on this summer trip to Paris. I had a lamb dish with... More

My husband and I stumbled upon this restaurant in the Marais during our honeymoon. Without a reservation, they seated us in this beautiful table on the second floor with Juliet balcony. The rabbit, to this date, is the best I ever had. So good, that last night I had a dream where I was trying to remember the name of... More

A simple setting; picturesque and quaint and an absolute haven in the midst if otherwise off-ish waiters and restaurant owners. The staff at Le Colimacon are pleasant, proud of their work and offerings and are quite happy to converse in broken English while you speak far more broken french. Their focus is on organic and locally sourced seasonal fare and... More

My friend and I had no booking and randomly walked into this restaurant last Friday night. We've been pleased with very courteous and pleasant staff, the menu is exactly what is to expect from a typical parisian bistro, the decor is just right, not too old fashioned, not to fancy... Long story short: validated by 2 locals :-) Special greetings... More

We had one of the best meals of our lives at this restaurant. Charming staff, and very intimate place. Laura was an excellent server - of the caliber you get in fine dining restaurants, and Mathew was also fantastic as the Host. The menu had some terrific choices, and we followed Laura's advice and were not disappointed. The rabbit and... More
