Hit the spot

Great little spot and the friendly diner name is spot on, smiley waiters, no frills burgers and the best home made chips/fries. All washed down with a little carafe of red wine. Hit the spot after walking the City all day. Nice.

We ordered the club sandwich and the basque burger with beef pattie and chorizo. They both came with hand cut chips, unfortunately they were nothing special. Service and atmosphere were both great though!

I ordered Kale Salad because I really wanted to eat kale! But was not told that kale was not in season. The dish came and it was just plain old rocket salad - which objectively wasn't even good. The waitress was nice enough to give me some avocado on the side but it really doesn't excuse the fact that I... More

Visiting Paris for a short break. Called into Lou.lou.Paris for a late evening drink and snack because it looked welcoming and there was a good buzz from french speaking customers. We enjoyed the scene and ordered a bottle of red wine and asked for Nachos. We're told that they weren't doing hot food at that time of night. Accepted thus... More

Edouard M, Gérant at Loulou Friendly Diner, responded to this review

Hello! As the manager of Loulou Friendly Diner, I am pretty disappointed with the experience you had in our restaurant, and I apologize for it. It is true that we first close the hot food, then, a bit later, the all kitchen, in order for the late customers to have a chance to have desserts after their main course. I... More

Loulou says at the wall: "Start your day with a coffee and a smile!". Nice serving, nice coffee, nice mojito in one of the most beautiful streets in Paris: Boulevard Saint Germain. Strongly recommended.

It was great to find somewhere around Paris with gluten free buns to have with the burgers, the bun and burger were both delicious! It is a very cute modern diner with cool decor. The waiter was extremely kind and accommodating when we asked about gluten free options. Would really recommend for anyone in search for a gluten free option... More

Went there with family and asked for a club sandwich. Family realized that they changed the french fries for some home made potatoes fries, and they liked it. Seems the restaurant staff listen to customers and they adapt their menu to the taste of its frequenters. Nice to know about that. By the way, staff seems to always be happy,... More
