I have never been a restaurant in Paris like Chez Marcel. The owner and staff are so welcomed attitude, super friendly and very chatty. We had a great experience there.

This was a special experience. We were recommended this restaurant by our flight attendant and from the moment we walked in, the entire staff was all smiles. The proprietor was incredible--he saw that it was getting dark so he brought me a blanket (!) and gave us drinks to welcome us --the atmosphere here is fantastic, the tables are smushed... More

Chez Marcel was down the street from our rented apartment, so we gave it a try. The owner was amazing, worked us into his already full dinner seating in a most courteous and efficient manner. I am a vegetarian, so eating in Paris can be a challenge. The owner not only translated the entire menu for us, but also pointed... More

This restaurant must get most of its custom from the Hotel Le Six just across the road. It is too small to accommodate anyone else but this does not matter. Welcomed by the ebullient host, a native of Lyon (it shows in his food), you are seated very close to the next table (and I mean VERY close) and so... More

Chez Marcel is wonderful. The food is very tasty. The service is speedy and pleasant. The prices are low for Paris ($40-60 per person). The location is central. Unfortunately, I am not the only person who knows this! Chez Marcel is in several guide books and online services. At 8:00 PM, we were surrounded by and shoulder-to-shoulder with English speakers....

My husband and I just returned from Paris. We stayed at Hotel Le Six in Montparnasse. Across the street was a little hole in the wall restaurant called Chez Marcel. We researched the restaurants we would visit during our week, but this one was not on the list. The first few restaurants were okay. We finally were tired of running... More

A warm greeting is offered even before you have opened the door at. Chez Marcel. A fantastic relaxed atmosphere and superb traditional French food is what the place is all about. We sat next to two local gentlemen who offered us wine, spoke to us with interest and along with our hosts help us have our best night out in... More

This little gem is only open Monday to Friday but is well worth a visit. It's a classic French bistro serving robust, hearty French fare in a warm, friendly atmosphere. The tables are very close together but that's part of the charm - you find yourself talking to your neighbours. Ours gave us very good advice on some places to... More
