My wife and I dined here tonight. We loved it. The waiters had impeccable manners and service, and helped us with the extensive menu. I had the oeufs "James" to begin and it was a great start. My wife had the lapin and I had the boudin noir. Both dishes came with generous plates of puréed carrot and potato, a... More

Our lunch was ok. I enjoyed a good vegetable soup and a sandwich. We CLEARLY ordered the special Quiche Loraine et Salade. The Salade never came, so when I asked the waitress to charge us for only the quiche she rudely claimed we ordered it all but only wanted the quiche and it would be the same price.

We chose this restaurant because of the reviews here on trip advisor. Bad choice. We dinned with friends and had a smattering of French between us. From the moment we walked in we did not feel welcome (we obviously looked like tourist!). We tried out best to speak French and asked politely if they spoke English - the answer 'No... More

This is the problem with family run restaurants, owners can pretty much be rude and racist and get away witih it, unlike managers they are not answerable to anyone. We went there on a rainy evening and asked the vey pleasant, bespectacled frenchman inside, probably the manager, if we could have a coffee and smoke and dinner later, he said... More

I can't believe I waited almost two years to write this. We had lunch at this charming bistro after visiting the Louvre. My son still talks of the delicious roasted chicken and steak frittes he enjoyed. I had the most delectable club (French style) sandwich. We tell everyone visiting Paris to be sure and have a meal here. I will... More

This is a fabulous restaurant on the banks of the Seine. Very cozy decor with warm and friendly service. The food was excellent, with a near endless supply of "frites" to accompany the perfectly cooked and well seasoned steaks. The waiter was fun and the owner/manager gave us his full attention and made the evening very special. Highly recommended!!

Walking into Le Voltaire one feels as if one is walking into a private club from a different age. The setting is absolutely gorgeous - soft lighting, wood panels and fresh flowers. The patrons are locals known to the staff (a lot of kissing and hugging at the door) or very well healed tourists. And you had better be "well-healed"... More

Steak Frites is a must eat in Paris. Why not spoil yourself and go to an AAA location? Le Voltaire is one the names famous for Steak Frites. We showed up without reservation. Luckily the weather was pretty good and outside was a table available. We ordered only the main meal and one tap beer. Mains comes with bread, vegetables... More

Convenient to the Louvre and in the river, this traditional Bistro was delightful. Order from the daily specials board...our 8 year old ordered lasagna (random) but we were fighting over his leftovers! Delish...my hubby even tried to order another plate but they had run out!
