Nice Restaurant in Rue Cler Neighborhood

While in Paris we rented an apartment on ave de la Motte Picquet and Rue Cler. It was like being part of the neighborhood. We walked down Rue Cler almost everyday whether to the post office, one of the markets to do shopping, to one of the restaurants for lunch or just to have a cappuccino or... read more

This cafe on rue Cler is very large and always seems busy at any time of day. They are a full service restaurant that will serve meals at any time of day. This is especially helpful for visitors who have not changed to Paris time yet or like earlier suppers. Be sure and try their fish and chips and their... More

What a great street and this cafe is the center of everything. I had the duck confit and wonderful french wine, sipped the wine and watched the people on the street and talked to my neighbors as the tables literally touch each other. I stopped here twice in 10 days. Would definitely go back.

After experiencing a fantastic minimum of quality and service all over Paris, this place fell below my expectations. The food tasted good, but not great. Sort of a tourist trap in that menus are in English too (not necessarily a bad thing), but they neglected to tell me the full list of ingredients in what I ordered. Add to that... More

Love this café on rue Cler. Always busy, it is a typical French café with brilliant food and inexpensive. I like the ceasar salad (which isn't the usual dish at all, Much more interesting!) and the duck. They do steak tartare too. I like to sit on the side outside, chat and people watch.

I'm usually pretty good at picking restaurants and I dropped the ball on this one. I had the duck. The food was ok, but that's it. They could have done more with the duck. It looked sad on my plate. The restaurant is in a great location but the food was just ok. I was expecting more...more flavor, my presentation,... More

Happened upon this one February. Has such a great neighborhood feel in such a touristy area. We have been many times since and my family won't go to Paris if they can't come here. Don't go here if you want quick food or the best food. Go here if you want a leisurely, wonderful meal. Never had anything bad and... More
