Our Favourite Cafe

This was our second trip to Paris and we've relied on this cafe for our meals each time. The food is always hot, and very good. The menu hasn't changed much over the years, but like I said, food is always good. Service is good too, we've gotten to know some of the wait staff and they're always... read more

Great service, Wonderful drink. Fantastic food. All of this at a reasonable price. Don't ever try to tell me that the French are unfriendly.

It is a great cafe for a lunch in the terrace. Being a quite street you can enjoy your lunch in peace with no car noise. It has a decent selection of beers. I had the steak tartare which was very nice. Price and service were also fine.

I live around the corner from this place and went with two girlfriends to sit in the sun and have a drink. The waiter came and I hadn't figured out what I wanted, they ordered and me taking time annoyed him so he rolled his eyes and left. We had a lovely time in the sun and thats why I... More

Located on the popular Rue Cler shopping street and loaded with American tourists carrying the Rick Steve's tour book this very popular restaurant and bar is also frequented by locals later in the evening. Because it is filled with tourists in the evening for dinner the restaurant staff speaks English and has English language menus as well. If you don't... More

My wife and I ate here and enjoyed it. The prices were reasonable. There is a series of fixed price plates at 12€ and cafe creme is 3.20€. It is on Rue Cler which is a good place for people watching.

The service here was lackluster and the food was bland. We ordered salmon with rice and it was not very good. However, some of the other dishes coming out of the kitchen looked much better than what we got.

My husband and I had dinner here, and while we didn't care for our pastas, the atmosphere was great! We were also very lucky that our time in Paris the weather was absolutely perfect, so sitting outside and having after dinner coffee while soaking in the scenery was ideal here. The restaurant is on Rue Cler, which is one of... More

Very friendly, helpful wait staff and very prompt service. The food was high quality and tasty with generous portions. The crème brulee was the best we had in Paris. Great place in a great neighborhood.
