This restaurant was across the street from our hotel! The food was amazing! This is a place that locals go to and with our minimal French we were able to figure out the menu with the help of the staff who were very friendly.

If I could give Wadja a negative review, I would. We spent quite a lot of time trying to locate the restaurant and then were told we wouldn't be served. First, the reason was that they were too busy and the wait time would be 45 minutes. We explained that we did not mind waiting until they could seat us.... More

If you like French food but your language skills are not up to ordering in French this restaurant could suit you. The night I visited, there were only 6 French people at 1 table. The rest were American and we 2 English. The staff were fluent English speakers and while English language menus were available, the staff were most willing... More

Wadja was directly across from our hotel (Best Western Villa des Artistes). We had a guide pick us up at the hotel one morning, and he told us to try Wadja. Are we glad we did! The place was hopping. I think the 3-course menu was about 37 euros. We had house wine, and everything was outstanding!

Incredible cuisine. Tasteful, imaginative and yet with traditional French cuisine approaches. Absolutely top-class in innovation, freshness and quality. Fruits, deserts, Kind of restaurant which proves that gems are all over Paris, and as the Parisiens say - not found on the "grands boulevards"...Attentive staff. A bit csotly, but worth it for the preparation and quality. Neighbourhood atmosphere. Highly recommend. !!!

Delicious French food in a genuine, laid back French restaurant. Everything we ate was superb - the celeriac/truffle starter and duck plat were highlights. Friendly French waiter who only touched on English if we needed it, which we liked - and we only heard English being spoken at one other table. You'll be offered a digestif on arrival and be... More

This was a lovely little restaraunt tucked away down a side street. Food was fresh, flavoursome and a real delight. Staff were friendly and efficient, we were a group of 20 so fairly demanding. The duck with apple onion gravy was the best I have tasted, cooked to perfection. The wine was also very special. Lovely evening, highly recommendable.

Some of the recent reviews of Wadja have complained about small portions and poor service. I wonder why? We have just returned to our hotel from our fourth visit to Wadja over the past decade and found it just right for a small neighborhood Parisian restaurant. One cook in the kitchen, one server on the floor (but it was Monday... More

The waiter spoke English and translated the menu. Portions are rather small, but food very good. The sticker on the door said Michelin 2013 which increased expectations. Rather noisy.

No scallop has ever been lonely -- anywhere. Portions fit for a child? Perhaps Wadja were unaware that was your only meal of the week. Listen people: "threadbare" ambience has little to do with the quality of what a restaurant provides; one should visit a restaurant to eat; expecting an "experience" may be aiming too high. You demand an experience... More
