“Hidden gem in marais”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2010

Looking for a dinner without reservation at a reasonable price on new years eve we were very lucky to get two places in this small restaurant.What a surprise! We got delicious prawns, a sensational good lamb and dessert for only 40 euros while many restaurants in paris were shut or offered menus at horrible prices on this special evening.What a bargain with friendly service in a cozy athmosphere. See the visit of the toilet on the funny side.Will definitly return at next visit in paris.

“Intimate with very nice food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2009

The service was brilliant, we do not speak french and forgot our translation book, but the waiter knew a little english and was very helpful in translating the menu for us. We had the Prawns as an entree (the BEST prawns i have ever eaten), then we had the Duck as our main... the duck was lovely, it came off the bone with the slightest touch of the fork and was very moist. For desert we had the Creme Brulee and the Souffle, both were quite good. The bill was around 50 euro for 2 of us. If i was in Paris, I'd go there again.

“A local favorite with very good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2009

Our french cousins took us here. It is a local favorite with what they consider reasonable prices and good value. For starters the escalope de foie gras de canard miel raisin was very good. The duck confit was also very good. The fish in cream sauce was very tasty as well (dos de cabillard sauce citron). A little pricey with the euro at $1.50, but a good value for the quality nonetheless. The suggested wine was very good. Recommended.

“One of our favorite little restos in the Marais”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2009

We eat at La Fontaine Gourmande on Rue Charlot at least five times a year and have yet to have had poor service or a bad meal. The food is always elegant and perfectly prepared, traditional French with a modern twist. The atmosphere of the resto is romantic and warm. It's a small out-of the way place for tourists, but a local neighborhood favorite. Desserts are superb.
