I am torn on my review of Bouillon Chartier. On one hand, the restaurant itself is beautiful, in an historic building. It was an interesting atmosphere - couples are seated with other couples, it is VERY fast paced, VERY high noise level, waiters are bordering on rudeness but not quite (at least in our case). It think it helped that... More

This was a return visit to this monument I would have enjoyed it more had I just visited as a museum and not eaten No reservations - Shared tables (as usual) this time with a Japanese couple who photographed everything - maybe as evidence Strangely queues do build up at times and they don't take reservations There are various language...

We were searching for a nice traditional restaurant with not so expensive menus. This restaurant was just the perfect choice. No need for a reservation, you have to wait in line for about 10-15 min and then you're in. We served our dinner at a table for 2 but it depends on the luck, you might as well share a... More

Found this place on several cheap eats websites so decided to give it a try. From the metro station, pass by the Holiday Inn and it's about another block away from there. Shared a table with a cheerful old Parisian couple who were celebrating the wife's birthday and enjoyed watching the waiters trying to balance several plates all at once... More

It was our first dinner in Paris and it took us an hour to come here. There was no line at the entrance about 6pm and we were shown very quickly to a table shared with another couple. We waited for almost 10mins and the waiter just ignored us. He also made rude comments about us because we were asking... More

We stumbled across this restaurant by chance while staying in the Montmartre area and what a find it was too!!! We walked in to a full restaurant with incredible ambience and decor. We swiftly directed to a table and given our menu, which was in French so take some form of translator. It's a very simple menu but very classic... More

Authentic french food in the middle of Paris! I was in love with everything from the beautiful building, speedy waiters and the bill being scribbled on the table! Genius!

This is a busy institution, a real Paris bistrot dating from 1896 where you get good, honest, traditional fare; service with attitude and a sense of fun and generally, food within a few minutes of being seated. We waited barely 5 minutes and, there were hundreds seated, some feat for France these days. Arriving before 22:00, some menu options were... More

Well, at least we won't forget the dinner we had here. It started out well enough: the room is indeed vast and beautiful, and we were greeted with more than usual friendliness (for Paris). The menu has a decent selection, and it is value priced, especially considering the area. The experience soured when we asked the waiter for information on... More

I am usually a positive person who likes to look at the bright side of an experience but here there was no bright side, we were treated like cattle. You'd have to pay me a lot to go back here. First of all the food was cheap and factory like, churned out in under 5 minutes from ordering. The dishes... More
