Our group squeezed into one side of the restaurant. We had all the starters to share which was lovely. The artichoke heart was amazing as was the mushrooms and the wonderful pea purée, trust me I had not had artichoke and it was amazing, also the pickled garlic was lovely. The coq au vin for mains was an absolute winner... More

After reading the reviews my boyfriend and I decided we wanted to eat at Chez Marcel. We tried turning up on an evening but it was fully booked, however we were able to reserve a table for the following night which was our last in Paris. It was a truly French experience and so worth waiting a further night! We... More

Made a reservation for this restaurant because of its high score in the TA , and also because it was across the street from our (recommended) hotel/ The owners welcomed us with a very warm welcome and because we were the first couple to arrive that evening he sat next to us to chat and recommend places to go in...

Definitively as good as it can be when you want to experiment a typcial french Bistro. The food is good without being extra ordinary, the service was great and the ambiance is doing the rest. Don't expect a lot of privacy though, tables are side by side, but this is how it works in Paris !

We were looking for a place to easy on a Monday night which Sundays and Mondays can be a little difficult with most places closed. Had our hotel make us a reservation and walked over. TIGHT seating. They do fill up so you have no choice but to share a close seat with whomever is sat next to you. Nice... More

Located very close to Vavin metro in 6th Arr, this small restaurant was excellent, with authentic French cooking done by friendly family. Entrees from 20E, desserts incredible! Our party of four each had a different dessert to sample, each one was amazing. Chocolate mousse got best vote. Opens at 7:30, owners very gracious to explain menu in English, and welcoming... More

Chez Marcel was recommended by another Montparnasse area restaurateur who was unable to accommodate us at his own restaurant due to a private function. He did us a great favor. Diners are welcomed by Pierre and his staff as friends and you end up making some before the night is over. It has the feel of a small, intimate dinner... More

Our hotel recommended we go here for an authentic French Dining experience. Pierre was very friendly as were the waitresses. It is a fabulous atmosphere. Tiny restaurant, make sure you book. Not for young families. Food was great. Wine was great. Would absolutely go back.
