Dining at Chez Marcel was one of the highlights of our trip - the owner and staff were so friendly - example - while we waited outside for our table to be cleared (we had a reservation - must have - only 15 seats or so), the owner came out on his own accord with a carafe of red wine... More

Went here last week having found it through Tripadvisor. Had a brilliant time and brilliant food. It is more than a meal, it's a slice of local culture and experience for everyone to enjoy if they have a mind to. Totally crazy guy running it, with a lovely team behind him. So welcoming and inclusive, you actually feel like you... More

We ate at Chez Marcel at the recommendation of Hotel Le Six and were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service was fantastic. The restaurant is tiny so it has this hustling, bustling feel to it and was such a fun experience. The owner served us and he was quite the character. If we had an extra day... More

This was a memorable evening for us, our last night after a week in Paris. This charming little space is just across from Hotel Le Six (which we also recommend). It's a tiny little spot, so reservations are a must. While there are thousands of places in Paris that you can have a great meal, there are not-so-many that create... More

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

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
