The restaurant was recommended by personal in the Holiday Inn hotel. Had to take a table inside as outside place was all for smokers. They bring your order very fast, and I'd say it's nice and tasty. But I think they simplify the chose of vines. The can propose you "a glass of Chardonnay " - very similar to air-plain's... More

As others have commented on, we had the 40 euro fixed menu, a glass of kid to start, a choice of one each... More

We went to this restaurant as a recommendation by our tour guide. The staff are attentive and very pleasant to deal with. The rack of lamb is to die for and the rest of the meals were fairly descent as well. Overall, it is a nice restaurant and one should go there if in this part of town.

We went to Le Cardinal because it was close to our hotel but loved the seafood platters, we ordered one each then wondered if we'd manage to eat it all. We did and enjoyed it so much that we went the next evening as well. The restaurant was relaxing and the staff were very friendly in spite of being rushed... More

Once a month, after a meeting in a nearby office, 12 to 14 of us pile into this busy bustling restaurant and it never disappoints. Service is brisk, as it has to be for Parisians limited for time, the food always well flavoured. We always pre-order but apart from ensuring they have enough ingredients it seems as the actual cooking... More

My boyfriend and I came here on a Friday night and the waiter did not smile once. Drinks took a long time to arrive. My boyfriend ordered a steak to be medium- well done which I know in France is unheard of - the steak arrived bloody and raw so was sent back to the kitchen. My duck was tasty... More

Food was reasonable value and a good selection, the seafood as excellent and some of the portions huge. If there is a PSG match on at home book a table

Had two meals at this well-situated quality restaurant on the main square at Port St Cloud. 80 Euros paid for aperitif, 3 courses, half a bottle of wine and coffee. Service was outstanding, and food was wonderful.

My husband and I had dinner at Le Cardinal last night. The service was superb and the food and wine were very good! I had the daily menu which as others have noted here, is quite a good value. My husband enjoyed ala carte choices which were quite good as well. Lots of locals were here which speaks to the... More
