Good place to eat in a very good location

This is a nice and cozy cafe with good service and fair prices. The escargot were above average and the special of the day (the one that was available) was a hearty pork with lentils. The crowd for late lunch was mostly locals, which is always a good sign.

We started with a cocktail and decided to have some dinner as well. The onion soup was very nice and so was the rest of food. The location is on a corner and after dinner it was nice to have a short walk to the eiffeltower :-)

Great meal, decent pricing. The Raclette share plate was a highlight and the burger was terrific too. Excellent location , near the Eiffel Tower on the Rue de Cler with a great surrounding market.

A comfortable small cafe' in which we had drinks. 2 Irish coffees, 2 chardonnay total $28.00 USD!!!! Unheard of in Paris. We sat at the bar and conversed with the bartender. Also, unheard of in Paris. Located on the Rue Grennelle, typical French cafe' . Good drinks, friendly, great value for Paris. A 15 minute walk from Rue Clar. Comfortable... More

This is a nice restaurant in a good location. We found the food was pretty good, and good value. The tables are quite close together though, so you don't really get much of a romantic or intimate feel. There were tables available at the back of the restaurant which were more private, but we were not offered these and yet... More

Just back from a 4 night break in Paris. This restaurant near to our hotel and chose it for a meal on our third night. There were 4 of us and we all had something different from the menu. All thought the food was great and the overall cost reasonable for what we had to eat and drink. So much... More

One of the better meals I had. Not fancy but solid French cooking with one of the friendliest staff in the City. You will not regret eating here & you'll feel the comfy vibe.

My wife and 1year old stopped here and were delighted with the place. They were more than happy to heat up our baby food and seat us where we would all be comfortable. When my wife had to return a food item due to dietary restrictions that WE failed to mention, they quickly remade everything and wrote "sorry" I balsamic... More

After a long morning of walking our tour guide suggested visiting "Rue Cler." After walking a while we decided to try "Cafe Roussillon" and we were not disappointed with our visit or selections. Cozy, nicely appointed and very yummy. We tried a salad, pasta of the day and coffee and they were all wonderful and bountiful.

We walked in at lunchtime on a cold damp day. It was quite full, but they seated us quickly. English menus are available. Service is prompt and efficient. We found the beef stew delicious, filling and just right to warm us up. There are lots of local customers - always a good sign.

Tour Eiffel / Invalides
With the Eiffel Tower at its core, the Invalides area of Paris is guaranteed to impress. Golden towers and Baron Haussmann's urban vision meet military precision, stretching avenues, and luscious lawns. The area boasts the Musée D’Orsay, the tomb of Napoleon, the National Parliament and UNESCO, as well as luxurious, exclusive residences. In fine restaurants and at the weekend markets, families, diplomats, and politicians brush shoulders with the tourists who come to see this postcard-perfect area for themselves.
