Good paella

Honestly my family liked this better than I did. We chose it as a one night break from French food, and coming from NY/NJ we just don't get much great Spanish food. I thought the place looked a lot smaller than in pictures (basically one very white, narrow room) and lacked atmosphere. Food was... read more

The Fogon is a well-decorated restaurant with a charismatic ambiance and has a high price tag to go along with that. However, with high prices come high expectations and, in this aspect, the food doesn't deliver. The chorizo could use a bit more pimenton but it's not bad. The chicken croquettes on the other hand, we're very good. More importantly... More

Tapas menu is really good. Interesting mixture of Flavors and Textures, nice presentation. Paella was average for 25 euro per person. 12 euro per bottle of beer is extreme. Nice to visit once ...

Hostess and waiter were very nice and attentive. Waiter took the time to discuss the menu with is nd make recommendations based on what we seemed to like. No complaints about the service. The food was fine, but nothing memorable. We had some ham croquetas and a lobster head soup (they only use the head for flavor and take it... More

We discovered this restaurant by chance. This place looked nice and inviting and the menu was quite promising at a first glance. We ordered a selection of five tapas-like dishes because we didn’t feel like eating a heavy meal such as paella. The first dish was a cold green tomato soup which was absolutely delicious. I wish I had the... More

We ate here with my husband's sister and wife on a recent trip to Paris and it was sensational. We wanted something special as we dont get to see each other often. The setting is modern and cozy. Have an aperitif- we each had a different one and they were all smashing! I had the sangria and fear I will... More

Fantastic four course meal for a reasonable price given the river front, central city location. Delicious twist on an old classic, fruity sangria.. personal favourite. Other half had the most incredible tasting beer too! Chief picked the tapas for us and we couldn't of faulted it, it was new.. tastey and beautifully presented. If your a bit of a 'foodie'... More

A really lovely place to have a meal. The meals are served as a collection of tapas-like dishes and gives you a wonderful experience of Spanish food. Located on the Quai des Grandes Augustines on the banks of the Seine, this is a very nice place to have dinner. The paellas are also excellent. I will be back. Recommended!

My wife and I dined at Fogon this evening and we both thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We ordered off the Paella menu which is basically a course or pre fixe style deal where the chef chooses the courses after you've chiosen the Paella (in our case, Paella for 2). The meal started with s green tomato soup with hints of... More

Ok, I am a vegetarian and I had never eaten a Paella before (usually with sea food). The vegetarian option was simply delightful! Mouthwatering! The wine was also very fine and the staff are attentive.
