We've been to Chez Jenny about 2 weeks ago. We had an online reservation, even though it wasn't needed. We had dinner there. We ordered a Knuckle of Pork caramelized with honey, a salad and half a liter of white wine. First of all the waiter was offended because when he came we told him that we were not ready... More

Finding good food for the traveler on a budget in Paris can be tricky, but we had a wonderful light meal consisting of a mixed fromage and charcuterie plate with some excellent wine by the glass here.

A women from our hotel recommend us this place, because we wanted to try out some sea food near to place de la Republique. The look of the restaurant is very nice. You can choose from many sea food possibilities, but it is kind of expensive and the fishs and sea food what we got was normal.

When I’m in Paris I use to dome to this Brasserie to eat Choucroute. It is one of the best I ever had. Very near Place Republique this old restaurant keep high level of service for many years and always with great smile. There are many options also very good like the seafood platter or meat brochette.

Service was banquet style in large banquet hall. Chicken was good, wish there had been more sauce. Ubiquitous potatoes. The appetizer was tomatoes with a lovely pesto of which there was too little. Dessert a forgettable creme brulee. The regular menu looked intriguing but we were on a group tour and did not get to select our meal. It was... More

Recommended by the hotel, we decided to go in for lunch after passing the terrace since it was a beautiful sunny afternoon. The tables were very well decorated and it seemed like the right choice, but I was a bit nervous it wouldn't live up to the style. We had the snails, which were traditionally served and absolutely massive. Best... More
