Ate escargot, lasagne, french onion soup. Loved the food, service was a bit slow but loved the ice cream too. The lasagne had a huge serving of salad. I would definitely come back. ;)

Carmine Cafe is excellent!

The decor is lovely, the funky ceiling and the artwork.

The staff we ultra welcoming, bearing with my French ;) , and so quick, friendly & pleasing.

The menu is varied, and went two nights. Once sampling the PIzza's which were A-MAZIN. and huge! but managing to save room for the fabulous cheesecake. Second night we have Salmon with maison frites and bernaise sauce...so yummy!! The recommended bottle of chablis was lovely too.

And amazingly and considering Paris prices it was so reasonable, and it's a stone's throw away from the Eiffel Tower.

A must visit if you're in Pairs.

Loved loved loved it!!!

I enjoyed a delicious and simple pizza at Carmine. The service was friendly and relaxed, but attentive. I would not recommend going here if you are in a rush (where should anyone go in Paris for dinner if they are in a rush!? <g>) but if you have time, and just want to enjoy a nice evening with good food and wine, Carmine is a great option.

We spent a couple of weeks in Paris but we decided to spend our final night at our favourite restaurant....The Carmine Cafe. We always enjoy the friendly atmosphere and the great food. We find that all Paris cafes are not alike. Most restaurants are not very interactive or tolerant towards english speaking customers but this place is definitely the exception. The staff are super friendly and most of them speak english very well. This isn't the real reason that we like this restaurant. The ambiance, the amazing food and the generous portions make it a no-brainer....great place!
Bravo to Jean-Phillipe and the rest of your staff....you deserve credit for giving us amazing memories of our stay in Paris!

Carmine Cafe has a great design, like most Parisian restaurants do, but it also has remarkably reasonable prices and tasty food. It's ranking and proximity to our hotel brought us to this place and we were happy we went there. Me and my wife both had the onion soup which was excellent and cost around 7 euros. I had the Pizza Margarita which was one of the best ones I've ever had. My wife had the chicken salad which was also very good. The total bill for the both of us without drinks was I believe around 31 euros. Considering you're in Paris, this is a very good price for a lovely dinner.

Highly recommended!
