We have eaten here several times on trips to Paris in the past, so when we were wondering where we could go on our last night in the city this time, we decided to return. My husband chose the Chez Jenny special sauerkraut, which he usually has when we eat here. It's fairly expensive, at just under €30, but you... More

Lovely place and delicious, if expensive food. Unfortunately the experience was spoiled for us by the waiter, maybe he was the Maître' de, dressed in a fine suit but giving the appearance he felt he was by far superior to the customers - looking around he had the same attitude with all, not just us, with not a smile or...

I came across this restaurant on one of my walks through Paris and thought I'd give it a try. It specialises in Alsatian food (all kinds of sauerkraut dishes and flammkuchen/tarte flambée). I had codfish on sauerkraut and it was pure bliss (both the fish and the sauerkraut). Now I come from a country where sauerkraut is nothing out of... More

On our tour of Europe, we where suppose to have a nice French dinner as a final meal in Paris. When we got to the restaurant, we learned that they clearly viewed as Americans that can be ripped off. Instead of a classic French meal, they boiled potatoes, sausages and served this with Sauerkraut. Not one person at the table... More

Our tour guide recommended this place. A little more upscale that your usual cafe/restaurant in Paris. Food was excellent & wine was delicious. They do have menus with english & the waiter spoke english as well.

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.
