We came late for our dinner as we were jet lagged, and were quite brusquely told to hurry up and order and eat, as the next seating was at 10.30-11 pm. I guess some Parisians eat very late. The food was hot, prompt and very...More

Unfortunately we were sat in between the toilet and the kitchen. I know it's a small place but it's not what you expect when you book. It's a tiny place so it's somewhat understandable. The food in our opinion was ok, not wow, but very...More

A must try in Paris. The dishes are not too big but extremely flavorous. Also, the service is nice. Le chardenoux is a must do in your Paris list.

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy
Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois
de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make

Founded in 1908 by the Chardenoux family from the Lozère region, this authentic Parisian bistrot - actually listed as an historic monument - has seen generations of workers and market gardeners, when the countryside was just outside Paris.

It is the old-style counter, a piece of their history and those little Bistrot dishes - so friendly, generous and heart-warming - that the Chef wanted to give back to Parisians when he took the place over in 2008.

Renovated and refurbished, the Chardenoux has been given a second lease of life, a room buzzing with lively conversation and the tinkling of glasses.

The food served features fine seasonal produce, convivial cooking that is always cheerful and lively with that little extra touch of soul and generosity dear to Cyril Lignac. Like at the Chardenoux des Près, the chef has put together a menu that gives pride of place to genuine Parisian bistrot specialities, not forgetting the finest products from French soils.

In a room that seems almost suspended in time, the ceiling has a painted sky, and there is also a terrace for 20 diners for lunch or dinner outside when spring rolls around.
