Went there after a visit to the Louvre. The specialty of the day, fish in white wine sauce, was excellent. The service was fantastic and the staff helpful.

This is a lovely little gem of a traditional French restaurant - little being the key word, so do try to book in advance if possible (we did). We (my boyfriend and I) were lucky enough to be sitting next to the cooking area, and as it was lunchtime and not so busy as evening, we were able to chat... More

I’ve corrected the street address – 20 rue Saint Roch is the correct address. Sometimes with TripAdvisor the reviews get ever more enthusiastic until the perception is a venue will be monumentally brilliant - which is very rarely achieved. This a small restaurant with French character; my starter of duck pate was very tasty with great fresh bread. My main... More

Jeremy the waiter was fabulous. It is a Family run restaurant The meals were very good. Unfortunately, it was very warm that evening in Paris and the restaurant was quite warm. Make a resrevation because there are only 6-8 tables available per evening. Will definitely return someday when we get back to Paris.

La Cordonnerie has become my wife's and my favorite Paris restaurant. It's a tiny place (seats about 20) on a tiny street in the 1st arrondissement and the food is absolutely superb. Reservations are a must due to the limited seating. The menu is authentically French and we have never been disappointed. By all means indulge in the dinner special.... More

One should definitely try this restaurant. It has been 200 years ( the owner says ). A history itself. A cozy atmosphere and tasty food. Delightful.

My wife and I ate here 5 years ago to celebrate out 25th wedding anniversary. We came back for our 30th and were not disappointed. I was afraid my expectation may have been too high as we prepared to come back but instead they were exceeded. This has to be the best kept secret in Paris.

When I go to Paris with my sister she always makes sure we have a meal here ~ it is a great experience with the chef right next to you (if you sit in the front room :) Like another reviewer said steak not as tender as in the U.S. ~ but everything fresh & beautiful & the best sorbets... More

This was our 3rd time in Paris and 3rd time in La Cordonnerie. And once again what an experience! One of the best in Paris. We stayed 5 days in Paris this time and went to La Cordonnerie 3 times. Every single time was such a great experience.

There is nothing flash about this place other than the food which is from the heart cooked in front of you if you are lucky as we were. YOu can talk to the chef as he cooks and watch him in action. Excellent food, not in a fussy or gourmet style. We enjoyed wonderful scallops, guinea fowl and an an... More
