A lovely Parisian bistro

We arrived on a wet Sunday evening, and were immediately seated in this charming little bistro. The menu, on a mobile blackboard, is quickly presented, and off you go. The staff speaks perfect English, and it appears that a good number of the diners are tourists. Obviously, the high ratings on trip... read more

After being so excited to go to this restaurant, i was really gutted that it didn't turn out to be as good as i thought. The food was good but i'd read reviews of it being exquisite and delicious. I had the duck salad for starter, the veal kidney with pasta for my main and the creme brûlée for dessert.... More

After reading previous reviews me and my friends expected something WOW WOW WOW - and I have to say that it was good, but not over the top. The place is very charming and small. It is in a nice neighbourhood of the canal in Paris. At the arrival we were greeted by the owner who took us to our... More

This restaurant was wonderful! We were seated at a table outside and were handed the full chalkboard menu to review. A few minutes later, the owner came out and walked us through the entire menu, translating each item to English and giving his recommendations. My husband and I each tried different dishes and they were all fantastic. I had the... More

We saved the best for last on this trip. Chez Marie Louise is exactly what you think of when you want a beautifully prepared French meal. It's cozy, but Christophe is so gracious that even though you are elbow to elbow with diners at the next table, you feel comraderie rather than squeezed. We ordered from the menu, and I... More

Christoff, the owner, not only has amazing taste, but great humor. We were an hour late, and called to change our times, and once we arrived he joked on us in a good hearted nature. The food was amazing. My wife and i got the green salad, while we both split the crab with avocado as appetizers. Our main courses... More

I don't think its an exaggeration to say this meal was life changing. We loved everything about this experience! The owner was very hands on and tailored his recommendations based on our likes. The risotto was savory and creamy and my tuna was the best I've ever had. It literally melted in my mouth. The creme brulee is to die... More

Trip Advisor reviews were the reason we chose CML for our last night in Paris. We reserved online and received an immediate response from Christophe. It's a small restaurant and every table was taken on the weekday night we went. There were exactly two people--Christophe and a lovely young woman-- taking orders and serving, which they handled deftly. We did... More

The food was very good. My husband had kidneys - the real think, all in one piece - unusual and maybe not for some but he enjoyed it immensely. I had steak which was good. The service was good as was the atmosphere. Reasonably priced. My only negative was that it was too cramped for my liking but that's a... More

Staying in Canal Saint-Martin

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris. Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may explore hidden gems down nearby streets, from local bars to futuristic architecture. With its enriching mix of people of all ages and backgrounds, this neighborhood has a dynamic, inspiring vibe.
