Where to start! No one around to greet and show you to a table, took ages to place order and after being told the steak was replaced by duck we asked what the daily roast was-beef we were told-we ordered 2. My glass of red tasted cheap and was fridge cold. After about 30 minutes our food came-2 very rare... More

My wife and I had lunch and dinner at this restaurant. We enjoyed both meals very much. I had duck and chocolate volcano cake. I thought the service was very good. The location is very convenient to the Bastille.

This restaurant has nothing to recommend it whatsoever - food, service, attitude of staff - all dreadful. A great shame as this was our last night in Paris and we had hoped for something as good as the previous two evenings. Everything about the place was dreadful (except perhaps for the surroundings). We were really cold and ended up some... More

If you are looking for something simple and easy in Paris, this is the one for you. It may be part of a chain but the food is tasty and consistent.

Guess being a busy holiday season, service and food standard were definitely compromised. I guess our table if 12 pp didn't help make it easy for the server. It wasn't a great xmas meal for the 53ish euro xmas set that I paid including drinks. A small pc of oyster sitting on a bed of salt was kinda sad, though... More

No doubt the worst eating experience we have had in Europe! they give out English menus then don`t cook the food anything like you ask! Raw steak when you want medium to well done, chicken that is dry and obviously been cooked long ago! No English breakfast tea available. Soggy potato chips, old lettuce. They offered a lousy 10% OFF... More

After traveling for 9 weeks in Spain and France we found our first restaurant to which we would not return, food was cold, overcooked, and wait staff was disinterested. You can very easily do much better.

It's one of those conundrums when you are not having a good time or enjoying the food but everyone around you is. So what does that mean? Bad menu choice, bad luck or bad food? The only thing I had that was really good was, of course the bread is great and goes without saying, the hand made sausage, of... More

Very average Slow Service desended into disgust when I was served dehydrated, burnt, cold meats. The mixed grill dish was mostly inedible. The tough dry overcooked steak was terrible, the rib was so overcooked that marinade was past charcoal and what was once meat was just carbon, They must have had this sitting on a grill for a long time,...

Chez Clement is a chain in Paris ; this is the one that some of my French friends choose.for a casual dinner when we get together. It's not expensive, and quite good food. Chicken makes up most of the menu. The staff is quite pleasant and efficient, and the decor is rustic-pretty. The locations of the chain are quite conveniently... More
