The concept of this restaurant may seem simple, but the single pot dishes that come out of this kitchen are mind blowing and delicious in a way that you would never expect. Try them all, the Michelin star is well earned and you will not...regret anything you order. This is one of our favorite restaurants not just in Paris, but in all of Europe.More

The day my girlfriend and I visited this restaurant we were exploring the Eiffel Tower and surrounding area. We were getting hungry for lunch and used TA to find a French restaurant near us. We didn’t need reservations and were warmly greeted by the staff....Out meal was three course special which included potatoes stuffed with pigs feet, poached salmon, and a watermelon desert. Neither of us had ever eaten pigs feet but were open to trying new foods especially in France. The potatoes stuffed with pigs feet was very tasty. The pouched salmon was served cold with a mild sauce which was prefect because of the 100° temperature outside. We asked for a wine recommendation which paired nicely with the main dish. For dessert we had chilled watermelon resting in watermelon water with matching sorbet on top. The watermelon dish was so flavorful and refreshing for the hot day. Overall the experience was excellent. (The date of our visit was actually the end of July 2019.)More

We have been to Cocottes a few times already as we live really close by. We have never been disappointed. It is simple, unpretentious but very high quality at the same time. Staff is extremely professional, always friendly. It is actually the best part. For...the prices the service is impeccable. Food is really good too with some classic and some more original dishes. Decor is very simple but chic and classy. Overall, this is a really nice place which I highly recommend. We will come back for sure.More

My wife and I accidentally stumbled into this place and absolutely loved it. We liked it so much in fact that we ended up eating here 3 more times during our stay at a nearby hotel. The food was always delicious, and the service was...excellent as well. The place is very clean and classy inside. You can seat at the bar or at one of their tables. They have a nice "formula" for lunch of only 25E for appetizer + main course or main course + desert. If you want, you can get appetizer + main course + desert for only 30E, but only Mon-Fri for lunch. Otherwise you can get full "menu" - appetizer, main course, cheese course + desert for 38E. I tried their formula and menu several times, and it never disappointed. The food is nicely presented and tasted great. I tried fish, duck, even pigeon. Never thought I'd try a pigeon, but it was delicious. My wife wasn't crazy about a couple of desert options, but I liked them all. They will serve you tap water if you ask, and always lots of lots of fresh delicious bread. The service is very friendly and attentive. Overall this is my favorite restaurant in Paris. I'm very glad we got to experience it before they decided to shut down all restaurants in Paris because of COVID-19. Our visit wouldn't have been the same without this wonderful place.More

We returned to Paris with one restaurant on our mind - a return visit to Les Cocottes. That is how good this restaurant was 4-5 years ago when we could not forget the memorable food. What a complete disappointment in 2020! The famous squid risotto...was NOTHING like it used to be ... the risotto tasted like store-bought rice, and the squid were bland tiny narrow strips of white leathery rubber laid on top. That was what was served in a small bowl for nearly 30 euros. It was so awful I had to return mine. And the lobster bisque was also a fraction of the delicacy it used to be here. The service sitting at the bar, despite 5 men milling about & whispering & smirking with each other the whole time, was cold & impersonal. Christian Constant, what have you let your prize establishment disintegrate to?More

I went to this place with a work colleague. We had a reservation but were placed on a small table closed to the bar, so not much privacy but this is Paris! The meals were quite tasty and original. However, quantity was limited (this is...the trend for such restaurants but still!). It sounds there was a 3 courses menu but it was not proposed to us. It was limited to lunch or, for dinner, only to one choice per course. So the bill was hefty and I had the feeling this place was overpriced.More

The food and wine were very good and to be fair the place was packed out with a queue to get in. BUT. It is a long narrow room which widens slightly at the inner end. The main part has a small waiting area, then...tables for two back to back along the left-hand wall, a narrow gap for guests’ access then stools at a bar with a space for staff behind used for service and staff movement. I’d reserved a table but we were sat at the bar and told it was a ‘concept’. If so it wasn’t a concept that had made it onto the website but the purpose was clear to pack guests in. Gusts and staff were constantly passing by. There were too few waiters so we sat for some time without a menu until I asked a waiter who walked past us to place some menus in a pile opposite us. It turned he was serving a different area so, without a word, he picked up the menus, walked past us again and gave the menus to the waiter whose ‘area’ we were in who had to walk back to give us the menus. The behaviour of the first was neither professional nor acceptable. ‘Our’ waiter, to be fair again, was very pleasant and hardworking. Indeed the waiters were all busy but there were too few. It seemed the maitre d’ was not prepared to help with the service when he had a moment to do so. Poor team work.More

Wonderful service, and the place appears as fine dining. But the food was quite ordinary, and the furniture is terrible - high chairs, inflexible. Avoid if you’re small or middle aged.

This is a small restaurant (by US standards) with good service and food. They have a decent selection of entrees and drinks and have a nice ambience despite the small size.

I had the langoustine ravioli which was amazing! highly recommend. My partner thoroughly enjoyed the Rum Baba dessert which...definitly was not lacking in Rum! So glad we found this place and would love to go back!More

Hi I went there a few months ago. Not sure they do as Europe rarely accepts Amex. If you are there just to eat without looking for cozy or food with attention to detail, ok. If not try to find another restaurant. We ate with... More
