Yes as everybody else says, this place is a hidden gem! I have visited this restaurant twice in the last week and now I am back in the UK I am definitely going to miss it. No restaurant over here that I have been to compares to this. Reasonable pricing for the quality of food, lovely wine and very friendly... More

This restaurant is superb, I had the escargot and scallops and wow we're they amazing. The only negative aspect was the waiter took 25 minutes to give us our drinks, because of how busy it was and he had no help. Other then that minor Inconvenience there isn't much I can say besides the food being fresh and home Cooked.... More

Imagine you have been to Paris many, many times and had several superior meals. And then you visit Chez Toinette, and are totally blown away - by the food, the wine, the atmosphere and the service. By far my best dinner experience in Paris. This gem seats only 20-25 people, and there are no extra leg room. However, the relaxed... More

I can't praise this restaurant enough, the food, the wine, the service, absolutely impeccable. Totally relaxed atmosphere with exceptional food. It was busy when we arrived but the staff did everything possible to accommodate those of us who turned up without reservations. A wonderfully relaxed dining experience and perfect end to our Parisian break.

This place is by far one of the best restaurants I have *EVER* been to! I made a reservation only a couple of hours before and even came 40 minutes late, and the staff were perfectly accommodating. The decor is lovely: red walls, dimmed lighting, traditional French and simply beautiful. The host spoke perfect English and was extremely friendly. I... More

This restaurant is absolutely fabulous. We found it in a guide book and having read the recent reviews on Trip Advisor we did have quite high expectations for the place. Our expectations however were surpassed. The waitress was the perfect mix of attentive and relaxed. The wine was great. The food was probably the best I've ever eaten. The duck... More

We had our dinner in this restaurant twice already. It become a must to visit restaurant every time we go to Paris. Good service, Good food with reasonable price. A reservation is a must. Since every time we saw customer rejected, because they didn't make reservation and the restaurant already fully booked. The restaurant is not big and the seat... More

We chose Chez Toinette for our Saturday evening meal on Valentine's weekend... I have to confess that the walk from our hotel didn't fill me with confidence as it is situated just off the main boulevard of sex shops. But don't be put off... this bistro with maybe 30 covers is warm and welcoming. The staff are excellent, enthusiastic and... More

My only complaint is that it was hard to get a hold of this restaurant to make reservations. Plus, it's pretty close to Paris' red light district. Beyond that, food was excellent, service was warm, they tolerated our two time changes to our reservations, and we sat next to fairly famous Hollywood actress and actor. That's a pretty good night!... More

We made a month ago a reservation for my anniversary at Chez Toinette. We arrived at the restaurant and it was closed! We had to find a different restaurant, for us never Chez Toinette again.
