I have eaten here many times over the years. There is a simple menu: salad, steak strips with a secret green sauce and French fries (served in two portions during the meal). The steak sauce is the amazing part of the meal; I just can't get enough. They also have an excellent selection of deserts (if you have room after... More

Loved the fresh caeser type salad and then the steak with an amazing sauce and fries. Thought we were done after finishing the food and they brought out MORE steak and fries. It was delish! If you want something different than that, go somewhere else as the menu is truly steak and fries. They have paper on the tables and... More

We visited the Barcelona restaurant when it was still open. Then this one about 15 yrs ago. Went back today and it was as good (or better) as before. Line of people waiting to get in. Only one food choice. But oooooooh how delicious! We'll be back!

One of my best places to eat in Paris. Unfortunately they do not take reservations you have to resit in line. A MUST is to let you hotel conserge to check if they opened after their current major renovation. I passed by last week and it was closed still and planned to open some time in Aug 2016. Avoid disappointment... More

Been here before which is how I rated it. It is, however, closed for renovations. You can always go to the Relais d'Entrecote on Rue Marbeuf. No difference between the two.

This restaurant is the authentic experience of "old-timey" Paris dining. There is not reservations, there is just one dish and the waitresses will be cunningly superior with you (without being arrogant). I often take out of town friends to the Relais and have never had to complain. The entrecote and sauce goes without saying. What actually tops it off is... More

We have been customers for a very long time and usually visit when we are in Paris. We knew that they closed for a whole month during the summer so we checked their website to see if they closed in July or August 2016, it did not say that the restaurant closes in July and other website said that it...

God I love this place! Everything about it! Have to say though even though I totally get that there is no menu and there is only one real choice here- which is - how do you like the temperature of your meat. All that being said- the server we had just really turned us off. After 30 minutes plus of... More

Classic French brassiere with one type of meal - steak, frites (fries potatoes), and lettuce & walnut salad tossed with a dressing made from the spicy mustard served with the meat. Delicious and filling meal. Eat half the meat and lots of frites while your other half remains on the serving platter keeping warm. Then you are served the rest... More

Good steak, good sauce, very friendly & efficient staff, crowded, far too warm in side, quieing, factory approach. Pretty expensive for what you get, but who blames them, there is no reservation system and day after day people are quieing outside to get in. 1 dish only (steak with the so called 'secret sauce' and French fries), with a medicore...
