Nice lunch!

We stopped here before our walk through Rue Cler. Server was friendly and the fish of the day was fresh and delicious. Seemed like we were the only non-locals dining at the time, which was a good sign in our book!

The service was good but the food was bland. I got French Onion Soup, which was not very tasty. The beef bourguignon tasted like the way I make it in my slow cooker and I am not that great of a french cook. Based upon the price and taste of the food I can only rate it average. I would... More

I ate dinner here when I stayed at the nearby Hotel du Cadran. The food was excellent and the service is fast and friendly. I'd go here again.

We stayed in Paris for 3 days and visited this harming pale 3 times, the staff are super friendly and the food is to die for, best french onion soup i have ever tasted. There is no sense of being rushed you can easily spend a couple of hours without feeling under pressure. I cant wait to return, if I... More

We enjoyed our dinner at cafe Roussillon in August so much that we returned in December. In August they were out of mashed potatoes to go with the beef Bourguignon so my husband ordered it this time and enjoyed the mashed potato to mop up the gravy. I had roast chicken and we both had a creme brulee . The... More

The breakfasts are big. Eggs cooked nice, coffee fresh. The fruit was definately from a can. I thought the croissants were a little crunchy but as the owner brought a giant bag of frozen croisants thru the dining area on the way to the kitchen, we figured out why.

This is located just at the intersection of rue de Grenelles and Cler. We stopped in for a "snack" and a drink. We ordered a charcuterie platter and 2 beers. The staff was great with us, and were friendly. The food was amazing. If you like charcuterie platters, this is the place for you! Conveniently located, and serve food all... More

This was half a block from our apartment. It is an opportunity to mix with locals. After three visits, one is a regular. There is a good selection of beer, moderate prices and a satisfactory menu. The best part is meeting locals.
