Very nice Paris Brasserie

The waiter was very attentive and when my wife spoke French, he was pleased. The wine selection was good and the food was genuine French cooking. Well located on Rue Cler and its many shops.

On previous occasions we had breakfast here but this is the first time we had dinner. Our waiter Hugues was really nice and his English was good. My husband had a half bottle red wine (€9.70) and we shared a carafe of water (no charge). We both opted for the beef bourguignon (€15.80 each)which was to come with mashed potato... More

We came across this restaurant when we were visiting rue cler. We were looking for authentic french food and we certainly found it. The waiter Leonel was very friendly and explained the menu recommending certain dishes.The french onion soup was amazing. The steak was cooked to perfection and the creme brulle was the best we ever tasted. Would certainly recommend... More

We walked over to Rue Cler after visiting the Tower (thanks Rick Steves) and stopped at Cafe Roussillon for lunch. We are early enough to get an outside table. The food was excellent, with choices suitable for all the family. I had a cheese plate, which given the location close to one of the best fromageries in Paris was just... More

Stopped by for dinner taking our way through the back streets for an evening climb up the Eiffel Tower. Waiters had good English, food and drinks were delivered quickly. Good was quite tasty, average value for money.

We were having our clothes laundered nearby and decided to get a drink while waiting. On seeing the menu, we also ordered a couple of food items to share to have with our drinks. It was happy hour so my beer was a reasonable price. My wife had a wine, but this isn't included in the happy hour pricing. We... More

A decent meal, but the music is just terrible. Bass heavy electro which clashes completely with the nice french bistro ambiance. Is this a nightclub or a bistro?

Its on one end of Rue Cler, which is a hip street full of restaurants and small shops. It fit well into our plan of eating before going to the Eiffel Tower late at night. Outdoor tables are the best (also helps dissipate the cigarette smoke from nearby tables quickly). Service was excellent - simple french menu, mostly (just don't... More

I've been here before when the food was better. I had the seafood salad and it was so creamy I felt a little off later in the day. Friendly service and a good location. Probably better for drinks, really.
