I felt cozy and at home at JJ's even though I was 5000 miles away from home. Food was great, especially the truffle ravioli. Chef and waitress explained every detail of the meal in good English. A little pricey but well worth the cost.

I went in this tiny restaurant with my husband last night. We were the only customers. The atmosphere was great, the service was efficient but not pushy and the food was delicious. It is well worth a visit if you are in Paris!

I was in Paris with some new colleagues walking the Champs-Elysées looking for an authentic Parisian experience. I had pulled up TripAdvisor on my iPhone and searched for nearby French cuisine. J J's had come up and my colleagues joked about the name until we walked in and sat down. The atmosphere is very cozy, the waitress was extremely good... More

Quiet little restaurant close to the Champs-Elysées but slightly off the beaten path. The food was wonderful and the service even better. The menu had a variety of selections for most appetites. We started with two delicious, fresh tomato appetizers, one hot and one cold but both amazing. We then had grilled Seabass and veal for our main courses. Both... More

We arrived in Paris tired after our flight. Just looked for a restaurant close to our appartment. We were very positively surprised by the ambiente, the food and very friendly and English speaking service. Try it! You will be surprised!

After looking for a little bistro for supper with two colleagues, we came across JJ's. The service was friendly and jovial and very un-Parisian! There was a good choice of food, I can particularly recommend the foie gras and cote du boeuf, the steak was properly blue. A very convivial evening and I would wholeheartedly recommend and return if ever... More

While a little hesitant when presented a laminated menu, we had a wonderful time at J.J's! We were greeted by the chef/owner followed by a waitress who was very helpful in explaining the menu and helping us select a wine that was a perfect complement to our meal. Aside from the great service, our entrees (truffle ravioli and foie gras... More

We were visiting Paris & we were staying very close by so dropped into this restaurant to see if there was space for our family of 5 for dinner. We were welcomed warmly and the waitress and owner were very kind to all of us including our 3 children. We had a delicious meal and enjoyed it so much that... More

We chose this based on trip adviser reviews - was a great choice. A lovely waitress helped us translate the menu and we had delicious foie gras and terrine to start and perfectly cooked beef and tasty duck for mains. The very good sides of mash, beans and ratatouille were a welcome addition. Apple crumble to end was lovely. Easily... More
