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

Althogh the food was quite good the prices were high and more importantly the portion was only fit for a child . The proprietress was indifferent to any complaint or redress.

Plain and simple ambiance, no frills. Food was nothing special. Ravioli were greasy and unaccompanied by sauce. Scallops were small and looked lonely on a barren plate.

What a wonderful dinner at Wadja tonight! I have a dairy allergy, which is very tricky in France, but the staff were extremely kind and accommodating and managed to make me a dinner "sans beurre, lait, crème, ou fromage". The tomato salad was one of the best things I've ever eaten in my life. The lamb with artichokes was also... More

food was disappointing and the welcome from the proprietor was less than welcoming; our waiter was pleasant enough but it was the low point of our dining experience in Paris

This restaurant was just across the street from our hotel. We decided to try it one night. The waiter was a really nice and experienced. The menu is presented on a big board and our waiter translated the menu into english for us! I ate the fish and chips - really tastefull, and my boyfriend had something else (a bird?),... More
