Superb!

Dropped in by accident. We soon realised that we was stucked by good fortune this afternoon. The restaurant was full booked by people that seemed to be returning costumers. We was lucky to get a table outside. The food was exelent. The service was most charming and very good. Highly recomended!

After reading all the nice reviews about Chez Dumonet we made reservations for our last dinner in Paris. We had the Beouf Bourguignon, Duck Confit, Millefeuille de Pigeon for the mains and Grand Marnier Soufflé and Millefeuille for dessert. Also had a great bottle of red. All perfect, still dreaming of pigeon:)) Hope to visit again

This is a charming Bistro with lovely service. Eat outside on a hot night as there is no air conditioning. The Gran Marinier Soufflet was Outstanding!

Managed to book a table for 9:30pm. The restaurant atmosphere was very traditional and different. We order 3 small starters for 4 people and they were definitely not small!! Portions were very large and starters were very nice. We ordered the duck confit as one of the mains, it was a little dry, however despite this the rest of the... More

This has been one of our favorite bistrot's in Paris for many years but no longer. The setting is ultimate Parisian bistrot and the service has always been a bit arrogant to Americans but we lived with it. No longer! We arrived without reservations for lunch at 1:00. We we re told by an unbelievably arrogant and dismissive waiter that... More

Had high expectations for this bistro, which reportedly had the "best duck confit" in Paris. My husband loves duck confit and orders it any chance he can -- his opinion of the duck confit here was "meh." Overpriced for sure. Wine selection overpriced also -- not too many good options for under 50 euros. Their foie gras appetizer was a... More

We went to this very popular bistro without reservations and got a table - between the kitchen and bathroom doors. Despite the terrible table site, the food was lovely. The boeuf bourguignon melted in my mouth, the accompanying pasta was perfect and the service was excellent.

Yes I realize all the reviews say this was really a "French restaurant" but I guess I haven't done enough research to understand what a French restaurant really is. Either way, the place was pretty good , portions were medium sized, food was good and the menus were in French. So perhaps it was a French restaurant after all. It... More

When you are in Paris, you can find hunderds of restaurants, but it's hard to find a real French or Parisien food. At Cehz Dumonet you can have the best French food in a real Parisien atmosphere. The cleanest and the most serious kithcen I have ever seen, and very good service. I had artichoke salad with orange dressing, very... More

Salmon and foie gras as starters were amazing. we had pigeon millefeuille and boeuf bourguignon as mains, both of which were delicious. not a fan of the popular grand marnier souffle but not everything can be for everyone. service was perfect!

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.
