We only had one night in Paris, so were disappointed to find La Cuisine de Phillipe fully booked. However on checking out of our hotel opposite at midday we walked straight in and got one of only 2 tables that weren't booked and enjoyed a delightful and delicious lunch. The special of the day Garlic Mushroom souffle was divine, melt in the mouth and light as a feather. My husband had the lobster and was very impressed. I had the devilled veal kidneys nicely spiced with a good kick of mustard and chilli - perfect and delivered with the smoothest and creamiest mash potato. The canard pie - similar to an english shepherd pie was also delicious. We finished with the creme brulee and apple pie and were not disappointed.
This is a 30 seater restaurant managed and run by one waitress and I couldn't fault the service, we were never left waiting and I truly felt as if I had found a quaint little restaurant in a remote french village where all the customers were regulars.
I would recommend it in a heart beat - we paid 57 euros for three courses and a glass of wine - the previous evening we had paid nearly that for 1 steak in one of the ubiquitous anonymous street restaurants.
I am delighted that restaurants like La Cuisine de Phillipe exist.
