Great spot for lunch after visiting the Eiffel Tower

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... read 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.

This restaurant had quite good English speaking service and the food was decent. Nothing to write home about but nothing to complain about either. A safe bet.

We had a meal here and the food was great. I had beef bourginion and hubby had steak and we both enjoyed it. Would definately visit again.

Busy corner on Rue Cler. Two of the three of us enjoyed the food which was very good. The steak was overcooked. Our waiter noted that it was just the cut of meat. Great people watching. Leave the steak off of the menu selections and you're good.

I have been to this restaurant numerous times. We used to live nearby. The food and service are both good. However, almost every time we have been there, there has been an additional item added to the bill. Once, you can say it's a mistake. But not 9 out of 10 times. Just be sure to check your charges carefully... More

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.
