“My favourite place to eat in Paris!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

I go to Paris regularly and never ever miss going back to Le Petit Marcel for a set lunch or dinner. It's fantastic value for the money, with a full 3 course meal. Each dish is generously served, beautifully presented and very tasty.

The location is fabulous, on the great street Rambuteau and very central.

The waiters are fun, friendly and helpful and I love the heaters outside so I can still sit on the terrace even in winter.

I highly recommend this place to any tourist or business traveler looking for a lovely French meal.

Bon appétit!

“Good for tourists”
Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

I would not recommend that place for those who want to enjoy french food or a brasserie. Plastic salad, poor quality but fair price for the location.

“a fun meal near the Pompidou”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

After closing down the Pompidou Centre on a Friday night, we found Le Petit Marcel. The waiters were accomodating and charming, making space for our family of 5 by adding more tables on the side walk. The food was great and the staff kept us laughing. A really fun night out after the museum.

“Poor evening out”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Whilst on holiday we were drawn to this bistro due to their happy hour and fixed price menu offers. We were sadly shortchanged on several accounts: the fixed price advertised was for 3 courses but upon ordering we were told it was for 2 courses only. The fixed price advertised on the offer turned out not to apply at the time of ordering. The "happy hour" was also decidedly unhappy, as the drinks were still overpriced. The food was mediocre, we both had confit de canard- it was very untraditional and served with Heinz ketchup! Amazingly we have had better duck in England! Finally, the bill was incorrect, overcharging us by 6 euros. When we queried this, it was amended however they did not apologise for the error and told us they only accepted cash. This would have been fine had they told us that at the start of the meal as we only had a card. We then were directed to an ATM to draw out cash- obviously this incurred a charge to us as we were abroad. We returned to the restaurant to pay where they tried to incorrectly overcharge us again and were unapologetic regarding their errors. We felt they had taken advantage of us given we were tourists. Very unimpressed, we would advise you not to visit here.
