A Paris Favorite

I found this restaurant more than 20 years ago and was not only enchanted by the space and ambiance but loved the cleaner french cooking style they offered. I have been back many times since including last week. This is still a winner and a place you will love and revisit every time Paris is in... read more

Rotisserie en Face is one of those places a local would return again and again. The food isn't fancy or contrived. It's solid and good. The waiters are attentive but not intrusive. And, the atmosphere is charming, roomy by Parisian standards, and quiet enough to talk. 39 Euro menu offers three courses and good value. Everything from bread to dessert... More

My wife and I visited Paris in September not only to see the sights (our 3rd trip), but mostly to enjoy the wonderful food. La Rotisserie d'en Face was the best of the 16 restaurants we visited (lunch and dinner). The food was delicious. The restaurant decor was modern and beautiful. The service was very professional, yet friendly and could... More

We were lucky to find and experience an enjoyable dinner here during our last trip to Paris. The food was delicious. The service was professional and unobtrusive. The overall experience was excellent. The restaurant was calm and unpretentious.

We have visited this small restaurant several times over the past few years - and this time was no disappointment. the Maitre d' is charming, the ambience relaxing and the food much more than satisfactory. I ate pea soup followed by pork tenderloin - my wife chose salmon - very satisfactorily. In particular the soup was excellent. We finished by... More

Wonderful restaurant near our hotel in Paris. Fantastic french food (highly recommend the green bean salad, fois gras, chicken and duck) served at a well-priced prix-fixe menu. Ate at Michelin-Star Jules Verne the day before and enjoyed Rotisserie d'en Face much more. Good food, good service, all in a wonderful and quiet setting.

The location is very convenient for anyone on the left bank/St. Germain des Pres are. We have been here several times and have never been disappointed. The restaurant itself is bright, clean and well organized. The service is excellent and very personal. The menu is simple, straightforward and very good. The poulet fermier (hot or cold) with whipped potatoes is... More

When there is a heat wave look for places that are air conditioned. This place is air conditioned and very good. If you have never been to Paris before you probably won't feel like it is very Parisian but it is a lovely place with very good food and service. It is very clean and sleek looking inside.

Our family popped into this restaurant for dinner around the corner from our apartment on our recent stay in Paris. It was a pleasant looking restaurant with a menu that met our needs. Although we didn't have reservations, there were open tables in the front room, but when we were seated, the host opened up the doors to the empty... More
