Fantastic food in a small authentic restaurant

This little restaurant was fantastic, it was small and very authentic and homely. Tried the garlic snails for starter, the first time I have ever tried snails, and I thought they were excellent. The chocolate soufflé desert was probably the best one I've ever had. The waiting staff were lovely... read more

Very typical french restaurant near the Grand Boulevard. Stay on the ground floor, avoid the 1st floor which is not very nice. The dessert was a bit disappointing as well as the quality of the bread.

We asked our concierge for a recommendation for somewhere to eat. He booked us a table at Clementine, a 2 min walk from our hotel. I can't imagine anywhere more French, a beautiful, rustic bistro with amazing food and wine. I had a quenelles of salmon in lobster bisque and it was simply superb. The price was reasonable,probably half of... More

Ejoyed a very good meal in Paris when meeting up with an old friend. This was my first visit to Clementine, which was a reccomendation from a colleague. Restaurent had a certain rustic charm and fantastic food which was well priced. I chose one of the daily specials and was not disappointed. I am already thinking about planning return in... More

Restaurant Clementine is a total find. Recommended by Parisian friends, they welcomed us for lunch last week and served our group of 7 with charm and professionalism. The menu is a steal at 26 euros - highlights for me were the croustillant d'aubergine, dorade and dark chocolate cake. We took their wine recommendations and enjoyed a delicious rose. The space...

I'd heard about Clementine for a few years, but this was my first opportunity to be in Paris, at lunchtime, on a week day. In a word: "joy". It is tiny, but full of light (on a beautiful April day) and you don't feel at all cramped. The other diners were a couple with a tiny baby, two businessmen, an... More

Completely unplanned but on the recommendation of a Parisian friend we decided to go here rather than some main stream restaurant and we were really happy that we did. Very simple but very French so that means good ingredients well cooked with little messing about. Service was friendly and efficient. Simple small menu which is often a good sign particularly...

A friend of mine booked a table for three of us at this very French restaurant. I ordered poached eggs with bacon floating in red wine source as starter, canard as main and a lemon tart to finish. It is certainly not a Michelin star restaurant but I liked the restaurant was tucked away from the main street (I would... More

I had a nice kir as apéro. The main dish was a superb canard. And the dessert was some kind of cake drowned in rum that was absolutely delicious. The place is very small and very charming. The service is very kind.

My husband and I ate at Clementine recently on the basis of reviews here at Trip Advisor and had a very pleasant meal. The food was all good but I would not say it was particularly notable. The maitre'd (owner?) was quite personable and happy to explain all the menu choices to us. Overall everything was warm, inviting, and authentically... More

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
