Description: Charlot's Art Deco palace is to be foun d right in the heart of a very lively quarter of Paris. And if Place Clichy reminds you of the seaside, it's entirely thanks to Charlot, reigning supreme for over thirty-five years as the capital's favourite seafood and shellfish restaurant! The authentic Marseille fish soup, bouillabaisse approved by the Marseillais ans with an a la carte twist, is enough to transport you to the seaside.

My wife and I travelled to Europe on a tour and as part of the package, this ‘famous and well known restaurant’ was added into the itinerary as the ‘farewell dinner’. I have reviewed a few hotels, but never restaurants. However, in this instance, I wanted to warn travellers about this particular establishment. The entrance is on a busy street,... More

Food is good and fresh but service is extremely slow. Although we were there on a Thursday night and the restaurant was half empty it took 50 minutes to get the starters... Also there is almost no choice for those who do not eat fish (one starter and one main course) which may often happen in a party of 5... More

We were drawn to this restaurant by the street-level display of seafood and the startling Art Deco façade, so decided to have lunch - a great choice as it turned out! (The internal Art Deco decoration and fixtures will not disappoint, fully living up to the promise of the façade). Of primary importance is to stress that this is a... More

First it's open on a Sunday which is pretty incredible for Paris! My wife and I were seeing Moulin Rouge that evening and needed somewhere close by. This restaurant is 5 mins away. Good shell fish platters! I order one called "Tresor" (Treasure) which came with everything inc half lobster & crab. Delicious & very fresh... No hint of a... More

Had a preordered dinner for the end of our tour at this restaurant and really would've been happier to find my own place to eat. The staff didn't communicate very well with one another let alone at all with us. Every time we tried to ask for a non alcoholic drink for a lady we got the "one moment please"... More

We ate there on a Tuesday evening, and it became packed. Although we sat down early, we seemed to lose the queue to the kitchen orders. As the hours passed, it became nothing short of unbearable. Definitely understaffed, with some of the waiters not being quite cut for the job, but with a pose of grandeur nevertheless. When the food... More

What a fabulous find! This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at La Maison Favart, the wonderful boutique hotel we were staying at. The Plateau Crustace I had was an abundant assortment of the freshest shellfish including wonderful lobster and crab. Shrimp were very large and delicious.
