Chez Janou is a very lively, traditional bistro on a corner on the Rue des Tournelles in the Marais district and its popularity is attested to by the fact that there are always people waiting outside for a table. Our meals were great, especially the...More

A 5 minute walk from the Place de Vosges, Chez Janou is one of our favorite restaurants in Paris. We showed up for dinner a few minutes before they opened and were lucky enough to land a table in the bar area up front. Everyone...More

This bistrot is small, busy and very much appreciated by the customers. They seem to have more varieties of pastis on offer than I have ever heard of! You need to reserve if you want to be sure of a table, otherwise wait until one...More

I came here with friends and we ordered beef and duck. Everything was good until we order dessert. Chef came with a huge bowl of chocolate mousse. One of the best I tried in my life. I will return here next time I’m in Paris.

I followed the recommendation from the staff of my hotel to discover this lovely little bistro that was very crowded on a Wednesday night. The food and service were good. The only slight dissapointment was that the crowd seemed to be dominated mostly by tourists.

The atmposhere was fantastic. The employees were polite and very helpfull. The food was delicious and the menu included real french recipes. I totally suggest it. You should make a reservation, due to the fact that there aren't too many tables.

We had The ratatouille and scallops with risotto. Both were absolutely delicious. We couldn’t have had better service. The menu was completely in French, but our server took the time to translate the menu to us, which was very much appreciated. Great first meal in...More
