Reviewed December 25, 2013

Plume being in Paris on the left Bank. Not fancy..but very good basic French bistro food, with good street people watching as well. The staff is very friendly and also offered us agree after lunch drink.

“Amazing french food in a cozy setting.”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

We had a wonderful meal and felt right at home. It´s all in the details, and Loulou has them mastered. The morning of the day of our reservation, Loulou herself called us to ask where did we want our table. It is such a small gesture, but it intrigued us and we were not disappointed when we arrived. I´m sure every person who eats at her restaurant feels like they´ve known her for years. The food was truly spectacular. We have lived in France several times in the past 12 years and we felt like we were in our old authentic french bistro. We had the moules, the salade de chevre chaud (delicious), and joked about not seeing hamburgers on the menu. Well, suprise! Loulou said she could make an amazing foie gras burger and she wasn´t joking, easily one of the best dishes we ate that night. The steak aux morilles was wonderful. Everything was really good. The service is impecable. The prices completely reasonable. We decided then and there that this is going to be one of our favorite restaurants in Mexico City. At the end Loulou and her husband brought complimentary champagne and we all had a toast for Chez Loulou, we really hope this restaurant becomes the success it deserves to be. Congratulations!

“Genuine french cuisine”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

I was missing french cuisine after being in Latin America for a long period and my choice couldn't have been better.
Owners Loulou & Raymond suggested me some excellent dishes: as a starter moules marinieres as you can only have in La Rochelle, to continue with a gorgeous confit de canard. I finished off with a goat cheese cake that was absolutely delicious.
Loulou and Raymond made me really feel at home. I'll for sure repeat, since there are still so many dishes to try.....
Highly recommended
