We always visit Rotisserie D'en face when we are lucky enough to be in Paris. This place is consistently good. Have the chicken, specify white meat if this is what you prefer. Best chicken in Paris in our opinion. The Vacherin for dessert is also a must.

This was our 5th visit and it continues to impress. The menu consists of traditional of French country food that is pretty straight forward but terrific to eat. They have a fine wine list and a highly professional English speaking staff. If you dine here you MUST get the Jacques Cagna dessert! It's a classic for good reason.

Had a very delicious dinner with my family. We enjoyed a nice carpaccio to start and then had a very very good sole as a main course. Would really recommend this place. Also ate the duck which is really good.

This restaurant is wonderful. We loved our meals. Near the end when we saw another customer's French fries walk past the table we asked if we could have an order and they were the best French fries we ever had. The restaurant was very busy, but the service was still very good. We would definitely recommend this restaurant during your... More

We lunched here as a party of 4. The waiter was courteous and helpful and the sommelier helped us choose a wine by giving us a sample of one we were not familiar with. The food was excellent - simple but sumptuous in flavour. My Paris-Brest was the best I have eaten. We were made feel,welcome and enjoyed the whole... More

I like to come to this place my first night in Paris. I'm not fluent in French and it takes me a couple of days to get used to speaking some French again. The friendly staff here speaks English and it's one of those places where I don't have to decipher complicated menu options. It's great comfort food after a... More

Conveniently nearby to our hotel, our group of 8 had a Friday night dinner. They would not let us in until 7:30 PM but it was worth the short wait. We all enjoyed our entrees, plats, and desserts, especially the Paris-Brest. We wanted a classic French meal on our last night in France. All were well served and the wait... More

We had a mid week dinner here. Two of us wanted the chicken with white meat, but we were told that there wasn't enough. A rotisserie restaurant without enough chicken? Mmmm. Something not quite right? Staff were ok, but the restaurant was very quiet. Very disappointing and won't be back

Excellent and classic meal in a nice and warm decor. Don't miss their signature dessert, the Paris-Brest. Would go there again.
