We fell upon this restaurant and were enticed in by the olde worlde appearance. The initial atmosphere and charm wore off relatively quickly as we were shoehorned into one end of a table, and we're joined rather quickly by some other diners. The steak and chips that we ordered was very good, but would haven been so much better had... More

Having read a glowing review on this as a good place to eat, I went there with my family a couple of weeks ago. The trappings are the atmosphere and environment, as the food was a major disappointment. Food was very basic in taste, flavour and portion size. It wasn't particularly cheap and we found a far better restaurant the... More

We found ourselves at Bouillon Chartier by happy accident. We'd been wondering around Paris and had worked up quite an appetite. We knew this place must be good as a small queue had started forming. We waited a mere 10mins to be seated and they don't waste anytime in getting you set up with drinks and a very generous basket... More

Too quick - very rude staff - over cooked and largely flavourless food. Don't be tempted to queue just walk past!

When you go into this restaurant you go back 60 years. Waiters dressed up penguin outfits with big white aprons, brass hat racks etc etc. It really is an experience and that has been carefully contrived to impress gullible tourists like me. The whole set up is clearly a very successful business, we walked past one night and saw up... More

Most important is to come early to get seated quickly. Waiters and the decoration are making it a genuine bistro experience. Probably hard to find better bistro food in Paris for such a great value! Really enjoyed their steak tartare. Would recommend for tourists during their stay in Paris.

This is my favourite restaurant in Paris! One of the very few original Parisian restaurants. Very authentic! The food is delicious and great value for money. I will be back on my next visit. I would highly recommend every one who is visiting Paris, stops by!

I can now see why tourist should pay this place a visit. We were attracted to the romance of the atmosphere there. Lively conversations. Laughter amongst friends. Flowing wine. Busy wait staff... Beware of lineup since they do not take reservation. We were there at 20:45 and waited for 20 min in the queue. Once seated, I love the lively... More

Better get before 7:30 PM, even earlier if you can. After a 40 minute wait we came in an were given a table upstairs, where we could oversee the main room below, where the environment is noise and full of good vibe. The waitress was very efficient and took note of what we wanted to eat pretty quickly, we were... More

Bouillon Chartier is a old restaurant with history. I tought it has to be an excellent restaurant but I was WRONG! I don't understand the long row, people stand outside to wait a table. You have to share a table with strangers. They only have a French menu and the don't have anything on the menu too. Waiters don't have... More
