Great French restaurant

I have visited this restaurant multiple times and it was always busy, always great service, always mouthwatering good and an amazing selection of wines! Please do visit here when in Paris, but book!! There is no space for walk-ins usually.

My friend and I arrived at the Bistro to find we actually should have made a reservation as it was full... however, perhaps on seeing the disappointment on our faces the staff graciously set up a table for the 2 of us outside which was perfect! Service was excellent, friendly, and gracious. The food and wine were absolutely delicious... we... More

I'm very happy we did not read some of the negative reviews before making a reservation at Le Chardenoux to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The staff greeted us with smiles and laughed with us over our difficulty with the French menu, bringing us English menus. Three of us ordered three different entrees and three different main courses. All were exquisitely... More

The menu features some classic bistrot dishes but with a new interpretation. The place is friendly but was so hot, could be great to add air-con or even fans. Anyway I have been twice and will go again for sure.

In a truly vintage and stereotypical Parisienne bistro, with huge mirrors and a generally ornamental feel, it was the perfect setting for an excellent meal, a little pricy no doubt but well worth the money.

We were here on a very warm Paris evening - 30 plus degrees Celsius. We had a table inside, and received great service. The set menu at €39 per person was well worth every cent. Starters and mains were excellent, and the desert - raspberry French toast with pistachio ice cream was just out of this world. Highly recommended, you... More

Le Chardenoux used to offer a mix of somewhat predictable, traditional French cuisine with some interesting créations, and you could always find something you enjoyed on the carte. It is now following the latest fads in cuisine, some nice, some not so pleasing if not in tiny portions As I have visited Le Chardenoux when being in Paris for about... More

Chances are that Le Chardenoux will be my new favorite restaurant in Paris (since the previous retired). I had one of my best meals in there. It included foie gras, marvelous farmhouse chicken with carrot puree and rum sponge cake. All this with just €39 (plus wines). Le Chardenoux is a traditional and famous Paris fine dining restaurant.

Great service & great food, particularly if you love desserts. 3 course set menu for 39 euros, which includes service. Spirits/mixers expensive, so stick to wine!!

This for us is the quintessetional Parisian location, where they serve up an easy and uncomplicated cuisine. But lets set the matrix first. We push open the door and you feel the comfort hit-the-spot...... Beef tartare, landes asperagus with mimosa sauce, saddle of lamb cooked in a clay crust, chicken cooked in hay, French toast waffles.

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.
