Food well cooked and decent portions

If you're in the area and looking for a good choice of well cooked dishes to fill you up then you won't go wrong here. Service was pleasant and reasonably quick. Good mix of locals and tourists, and the restaurant is of a decent size so customers are not piled on top of each other.

Once you get the slow service out the way this place has great fast food at super quality. The waiters only need to please travellers who are unlikely to come back. If you make the effort in French you will be rewarded. Coffee is ?1 at the bar. Free wifi is a huge plus.

Four nights in Paris and we've eaten here on two of them. Friendly, attentive waiters offer efficient service. Enjoyed the atmosphere on the terrace, sheltered but open to the sidewalk; they pushed the small tables together to accommodate the six of us. (If you are particularly sensitive to cigarette smoke, you might prefer to be inside.) The food was plentiful... More

Based on food alone, I would give this place a "3". The food was ok and many parts were overdone including the cheese on the French onion soup and the scallops. However, the wait staff are funny, entertaining, pleasant, and very accommodating. The place is close to Gare de Lyon and easy to get in and out. The beer selection... More

By Gare de Lyon it is a tough choice to make where to eat if you have arrived late and are starving. Every restaurant is full of tourists and prices on the menu are really high for the tourists there. Of the restaurants there, Aux Cadrans was the most appealing as it wasn't quite so garishly lit, the prices were... More

Ate here on our less night in Paris as it was just a short walk from our hotel. The food and service was very nice. I had the Aux cadrans salad which was lovely. My husband and daughter had steak which they thought was very nice. We thought it was very resonably priced for good food and good service. Would... More

We were staying just at Novotel Gare Lyon and decided to eat nearby. We tried this place out and it really surprised us. The starter Onion soup was fantastic, the main salmon fish was what caught my parents palettes and the custard cream dessert was most amazing. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a full and satisfactory meal... More

After my visit to Chateau de Chantilly, I returned to the area around Gare de Lyon where I'm staying. I wanted to eat just nearby but at the same time I'd a strong craving for some foie gras and Saint Jacques. After looking around for some time, I decided to dine in Aux Cadrans since they'd both dishes I wanted... More

Staying in Bercy / Nation

Neighborhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make their homes.
