Having come to Paris for one night with friends, we went with a recommendation from our hotel of what they called a "nice" French restaurant... how wrong they were! After arriving and ordering a karaf of wine recommended by wait staff that wasn't even drinkable, we were made to feel it was our fault to ask for different wine. We... More

Was invited over dinner to this one. They serve traditional French cuisine. We ordered for soup. I was super impressed with the way the lady seved the soup. Very nice! We ordered few dishes and all of them tasted awesome! We had rice pudding for desserts. That was exactly like the one we have back in India. The dinner, the... More

I have never in my life experienced such disgusting behaviour or food. Whilst dining with friends from Paris (one a chef), we noticed we could see into the kitchen. Needless to say that was enough to put the whole table off of our food. We watched in horror as the chef Rudolphe not only ate from ALL of the plates... More

Everything was just perfect. A great surprise was a grouse broth (never had it before) to start with, the grouse terrines were superb and the... More

I went three times! Honestly, the food is incredibly good and innovative. The lobster with strawberries, the lamb cake, the tuna with pomegranite... The service can be variable but look past that and you will get absolutely great french food with a twist. His terrines are succulent, nothing to say about them they are truly delicious... Need I say more..?

It's a shame to not want to recommend as the food was great and I have absolutely no complaints about it The service reminded me of how french waiters used to behave before they realised that customers vote with their feet (and research on trip advisor) The owner looked happy and welcoming, but it was hard to get water, easy...

We have been coming to Repaire de Cartouche for years and the quality of the food and the service has been maintained by Rodolphe, the pasionate chef/owner, all this time. The atmosphere is that of a local restaurant with a core of "habitués", returning customers mixed with French and foreign turists. Rodolphe is in and out of the kitchen, talking... More

Randomly stepped in for a glass of wine but ended up having one of the most memorable times in Paris (i've been living here for over 3 years). High quality products, all terrines are made in house and what you hope and expect from a classic French meal. The staff and chef himself are INCREDIBLY friendly and made us feel... More

This is an antidote to fussy dining. Simple food perfectly cooked. No frills just amazing product cooked as it should. Crisp service, great room that looks as though it has been unaltered since the war and a really clever wine list. Will I go back...... Yes!.....

Came across this charming little restaurant by chance as the one we planned to go to was closed. We were the only ones there to start with and even though the staff spoke little English we were warmly welcomed. One waiter could speak English and helped to translate the menu for us and also acted as translator so we could... More
