“Really oustanding.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Cocotte is the pot and the related way of cooking, tasty but healthy.
No big amount of condiments needed, oil or butter. A sort of european wok.
This place is the kingdome of this tradition.
Very good recipes, from vegetables to pig feet, from duck liver to omelettes and steacks.
Went there at 7 pm and after a little wait this magic spell appeared on our table.
I really recommend this parisian little gastronomic paradise.

“Good meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Headed by renowned French chef, Christian Constant, featured on a Bourdain show, and just a short walk from the Champ de Mars where we had been leisurely hanging out for the afternoon, it was an easy decision for us to decide to dine here.

We arrived a little early for dinner by European standards but glad we did as by the time we left a massive queue had formed outside the restaurant.

For the food we:

Ingested the fresh crab salad with shredded lettuce hearts (very refreshing), flaked tuna with aubergine caviar, foie gras (gotta get it where we can), and a classic French dish of veal en les cocottes.

Indulged on the Christian Constant chocolate tart which fully satisfied that sweet tooth craving we had at the end of our meal.

Imbibed on some nice red and rose wines. One thing great about European restaurants is that the price of a good glass of wine even at nicer establishments is much cheaper than in the States. Tough to beat that.

“Best Food and Wine in Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

This place is very close to the Eiffel Tower. I went there with my boyfriend in February. The food is very good. And they have a very good collection of wine.
We will definitely go there again on our next trip to Paris.

“Professional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

This is a very well run bistro, the waiters are professional and always on the move anticipating someone's need. The food is outstanding, and even the chef comes out to regard how things are going. A fabulous place!!

“Welcoming Personality, hearty delicious food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

This restaurant was a pick from the Michelin guide. I found the atmosphere to be lively and charming. I prefer the pace of the service over most restaurants in Paris. But I never felt rushed through my meal despite a large cowd waiting outside for a table (they do not take reservations).

I had an arugula salad with a poached egg and balsamic lardons which was deliciously sweet, salty and bitter. My plat of lamb shoulder and vegetables was delicious, flavorful.

The word must be out in travel guide books as the restaurant has many tourists, but because of it's proximity to the Eiffel tower, this is expected. The staf were entirely polite and accommodating to all the nonFrench speaking guests. Very pleasant night out.
