Wonderful French food for very little money

We had one of our best restaurant experiences in Paris at this restaurant. Great food, served quick and hot and very friendly service. The two of us had a starter, main and dessert each, a bottle of wine and bottled water between us and the bill came to 48€. Doesn't get much better than that... read more

Still a very good place to eat at reasonable cost. And the service is still almost like it used to be in most Parisian restaurants before it all became so extremely commercial.

Recommended this place by a friend and so glad we decided to visit. Reviews seem very polarized - people either love it or hate it. Thought we had to try it when we saw the queue at 3pm on a cold Saturday in January. Table sharing not what we would usually go for but all part of the experience. Menu... More

My wife and I were being hosted by a Parisian couple of friends. We asked them for a Parisian restaurant and they told us about Le Bouillon Chartier. Inside it's you will feel in the 20s in Paris, the menu is really traditional and you can try a Steak Tartare very fresh.

Extremely busy, staff very fast and efficient. Food if fairly good not exceptional, but the atmosphere is amazing. Crazy, busy, fast, with orders written on the table and bills made on the table too by the waiter...old style! Line is always very long, but it usually goes fast. Prices are medium.

Belle époque decor, basic, good food. Lineups are part of the experience as well as "surly" but funny waiters, writing on group tables. Well worth the experience if expectations aren't too high. Better than Bofinger. Still authentic and not gimmicky. Tourist destination but not tacky.

Years ago an Australian chef suggested to me that the key to dining at Bouillon Chartier [simply Chartier] was to order something simple - the risk of getting a not-so-good meal being lessened. It is a regular place to eat when we are in Paris and conveniently located in rue du Faubourg Montmartre just around the corner from our apartment... More

As an historic bistro you go to experience the place itself. So, consider what you pay for the food as an entrance fee. Frankly, the food is poor, and the waiters have been doing the job for so long that they don't care about the customers. All that said, the queues are down the street and expect to share your...

Staying in Opera / Bourse

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
