Nice staff less than exciting food. It was just an OK meal and not worth the effort to take the Metro to get there. Five dinners so far in Paris and this was our least favorite by far.

Most of the restaurants at the Pigal are touristic traps, however Chez Toinette is a typical small French restaurant with limited but great menu, the place is a bit small but cozy, service by Mr. Muzaffer was great and friendly, we had the lamp shank and filet both were great. We highly recommend it.

Living longtime in Paris and having tried many restaurants, Chez Toinette is still my favorite. Despite its directly on Montmartre, its away from the tourist masses. The restaurant is cosy, the service personal and warmhearted, which is rare for Paris. The dishes are all fresh and handmade, and just incredibly delicious. I really recommend to try the "Souris d"Agenau", the... More

This restauant is small, cozy, well located and the food was absolutely perfects. We tried apetizers, main dish and dessert and the chef didn't miss one thing about any of the dishes. If you are in Paris I highly reccomend it! The staff was very friendly and the location is perfect as it's only 5 min from Montmartre's main church.

This is my second review of this restaurant, but not my second visit, about my fifteenth over about the same amount of years. We continue to return to this place because it is consistently so good. Starters of Cassoulet d'Escargot and Tartare d'Thon were superb, just right to get the juices flowing. Sea Bass over a Rissoto and Tournados Rossini... More

I think this is the second or third review I've ever written on any restaurant but I felt so satisfied with my experience at Chez Toinette that I had to comment. PLEASE don't let the location intimidate you when arriving as the restaurant is located a few steps away from sex shops and strip clubs in Moulin Rouge. I almost... More

What an amazing little restaurant!! Booked a table for me and my girlfriend and had high expectations based on the reviews and they were all surpassed. The place was pretty much packed from when we arrived to when we left so as others have said I would recommend booking. The waiter was welcoming and charming throughout our meal even though... More

This restaurant has engendered a loss of faith in Trip Advisor, or perhaps I should say its reviewers. How could it be possibly rated No. 15 when it is so very average - once again, I can only conclude that most people really eat very unremarkable food both at home and out and therefore have rather poor palates. We started... More

If you are looking for a place kinda out of way but an adventure in Moulin Rouge then you have found it. Its a small place and a bit noisy once its full. Prices were reasonable. Food was excellent but there are plenty of alternatives with better atmosphere. Depends what you feel like. While it is supposedly known for its... More

As many people here I followed Tripadvisor's collective mind and booked a table at Chez Toinette for dinner. We were not dissapointed! It is a nice cozy place, the waitor is fun and friendly, and the food is amazing. We had a duck breast, a lamb shank, a bottle of red recommended by the waitor, and a creme brulee. Everything...
