the food is perfectly fine, but the stand-out here are the cafe cremes they make, and the VIEW of the Eiffel Tower. We go to this place in the 8th year after year.

The view was good, food was good, service was good. Nothing to complain. Next to the metro station, easy to find. Book a table before you go, make sure you can have a nice view, otherwise it is not worth it. After that we walked to Eiffel Tower. We had a great time.

It's OK only for a nice view on the Eiffel Tower ( but then for that you can have a free stroll on the banks of the Seine...) But if you have an average basic pasta ( penne tomato, basilic and Parmesan)for 26(!!!) euros and 50 cl. mineral water for 6 euros, you immediately forget about the sight! Skip the... More

Worst restuarant we ate in Paris. You are paying for the location , have eaten better steaks in McDonalds. Over priced and staff not that friendly, food was horrible

Had a great birthday celebration here. We got a table overlooking the Eiffel Tower; the light show on the hour was beautiful! Food was very good and service was good as well. Excellent location.

I can't complain about the food but the value is poor. Three adult and two children for £240 and no wine at Boxing day lunch time! There are much better places not too far away so I won't be revisiting this place again. Once you have seen the Eiffel Tower you have had your eyefull.

Though read many reviews that this restaurant is overpriced, still gave it a try as it's conveniently located to our next business meeting. Seafood platter was yummy! Tried 2 dessert and wasn't anything special. Service was great though we didn't speak French and staff were all helpful. Perhaps it was little overpriced but considering the location and the view, I... More

For my wife and I, the most enjoyable aspect of dining out is when we have a view to take in whilst we eat and relax so Chez Francis was an easy choice given it's stunning views of the Eiffel Tower and the 5 minute walk from our hotel. The view is indeed stunning but it's all downhill from there... More

On our first night in Paris, we had dinner a Chez Francis and it was all we hoped for. The service was excellent as well as the food. We had hoped to dine outside, but it was a rainy night and they had a corner table with a view of the Eiffel Tower just for us!! At 10 the Tower... More
