If you have to queue to get in, that says something. The ambiance is wonderful, with tables simply backfilled as people arrive and leave, and the food is simply excellent -- and relatively cheap. I love the way they write the bill on the paper table cloths! We will definitely do it again, and again...

Paris is expensive, right? Not here at Chartiers, it's not, at this beautiful, friendly, historical institution. The service is excellent. Though you will certainly find higher end if you want it, the food is great and the wine is superb. When I say, 'very French', though, that's a euphemism for it not being great for vegetarians - though if all... More

The food is good and wholesome. Steak is well cooked. You may have to sit with strangers but this just adds value for me. There are not too many places in paris where two can eat with wine for £40

For the ones, tourists, who just arrive in Paris, the place may be a little disappointing for the food but as a Parisian, i would say that "Bouillon Chartier" is an institution in Paris, as it is is an heritage from the Belle Epoque. In principle, a Bouillon is a nicely decorated restaurant which fits all budgets. You will not... More

We visited here on our last night having been recommended it on our first night, but noticing the queue outside decided upon a much more expensive and shall we say better quality restaurant around the corner. Le Bouillon Chartier is a very cheap place to eat, and I guess the food matches. It was a very large room filled with... More

Visited on a Sunday lunch time having been unable to get in on the Saturday night. Service was very speedy and efficient. Expect to share a table when it gets full, the menu is only in French. It's in a great location and is great value for Paris. Fois gras was excellent, as was the wine. 37€ for 2 courses... More

Nice place very characteristic! They have the menu just in French and you have to share the table with someone...but it worth! Great value for money and the food is much better than in some other restaurants we've been in Paris! Very recommended! One last tip...after 8pm there is long queue...try to be there on time!

Ah, Chartier, how I do love thee .... I used to come in the early eighties when the menu still kicked off with tiny centime prices for extra butter / cornichons etc. and you could consume vast quantites of snails and steak and still waddle out with change from a few francs. Well, my memory might be a little rose-tinted,... More

I've been to Chartier many times since 1975 (! - menu similar then, also some of same waiters?) and my daughter just enjoyed two meals there this week so I want to post this "expectation". Chartier is a long-surviving "institution", traditionally as "fast" as French food got, for working people to fill up fairly quickly on three courses of basic... More

We were in the area so decided to try Le Bouillon Chartier which is located at 7 Rue du Faubourg Montmartre. We were lucky to get a table as it was extremely busy, noisy & crowded. The restaurant takes no bookings so be prepared to wait in a queue. The menu was traditional & well priced for Paris. The wine... More
