One of the best meals I've had in Paris, lunch was extraordinary (mmmm lobster). Service was extremely friendly and attentive to our needs. Definitely don't find that everywhere in this city. Every part of the meal was superb. Highly recommended for locals and tourists alike... you can't go wrong at Paul Chene.

My parents found this restaurant serendipitously 2 years ago and loved it so much, we had to go back this summer. The owner greets you at the door, is the typical French monsieur, and provides beyond excellent service. Their homemade champagne is fabulous (coming from someone who can't stomach even the most expensive brands - Dom and VC - in... More

We were looking for a new bistro in Paris and asked our hotel (Four Seasons) for a suggestion. They told us that we could not go wrong with Paul Chene. They were absolutely right. The food was tremendous, the service exceptional, and the atmosphere even better. As well, their wine list was very good. Paul Chene was a comfortable restaurant... More

My wife and I started our visit with Paul Chene's own Champagne that we both found delicious! Cosy dining room, classic French menu, very traditional. Escargots, Foie, etc., food was very good! Finished with Crepes Suzette, one of my all time favorites... The house brand Orange Brandy is a amazing. Lucky for us they sell both the brandy and Champagne... More

We visited Paul Chene with our friends on a weeknight in late June. Owner Harold greeted us warmly and led us to our cozy table. We ordered some traditional French dishes, e.g. escargot and foie gras to start our night. The pan-seared foie gras cooked in their family-made orange cognac was the best foie gras I've ever tasted. I'm not... More

Had dinner on July 3rd 2014 with two guests. Restaurant was empty at 8.30 PM - not a good sign - wanted to walk out but being with guests didn't want to look strange. Menu is old, boring and too long (never a good sign). Had grilled langoustine, guest had a sole, foie gras and a steak. Terrible ambiance. If... More
