Amazing food

Although the place is small, this restaurant provides the best foie gras in Paris. The chef'cooking is excellent, the service guy was very polite and patiently explained the menu. Love this place!

The one constant you hear in descriptions of Parisiene restaurants is "but it was very expensive or pricey". We went to Le Train Blue and had a great lunch for 3, but it was almost 200 euros. At La Cordonnerie you can have a terrific French dinner for 3 and it will only set you back 140-175 euros for a... More

We had an excellent lunch here! It is very small though so I would highly recommend making a reservation ahead of time. It is well worth scheduling your day ahead of time to get a great meal in a neighborhood so close to major attractions like the Louvre, Musee del l'Orangerie and Jardin Tuileries. We had a time booked to... More

This is by far the smallest restaurant we have ever eaten in. We called on our way to make a reservation which is really needed in order to get a table. We saw several people who were turned away. The food and service were both phenomenal! I had the veal which came Ina rich buttery sauce with French fries. The... More

We went to this small restaurant on the evening before we dined there on the off chance we could get a table but they were booked out. A reservation is a must. We dined there on our last evening in Paris and thoroughly enjoyed the service and the meal. It is a family run restaurant with a small number of... More

We made a reservation for this cosy restaurant and were not disappointed. The part of our evening aside from the delicious flavoursome food was the chef Hugo who obviously has a great passion for cooking. He chatted to us and showed us the specials he was making. I highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a truly French experience. It... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of dining here the first night of our 40th anniversary trip to Paris. We sat in the kitchen and were greeted at our table by Chef Hugo, he took the time to chat with us and explained the days menu in great detail. The food and service far exceeded our expectations.

We were lucky enough to score dinner reservations for our last night in Paris. We had such a memorable experience, that we got reservations again for lunch the next day before heading back home. Reservations are a must, as it is a tiny restaurant, and only sits about 20 people max. The restaurant is located near the Louvre area and... More

We discovered this wonderful small restaurant nearly 20 years ago. The decor has changed since then, but not the fantastic food! Chef Hugo puts out some amazing French dishes from his small kitchen. Have the Duck Confit if it's on the menu of the day!!! Reservations are a must since there are so few tables. Try lunch if you can't... More
