“Find Something Else”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

Avoid this place, it's close to the tower, so I gave it some leeway in the prices, but the food was terrible, fried egg burger was $20, and was a BK patty with a fried egg on it, no bun. $10 a beer, I could go on...

“Great Location - Good Food”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

The location is everything for Castel Cafe. We sat outside and it was incredibly charming. The glow of the night, accompanied by the animation of the other tables made for a memorable first night in Paris for us. Our food was fine - nothing to write home about. I had a cheese platter and a dessert crepe. Good but not amazing. If you just want atmosphere with decent food, definitely try out Castel. Just don't expect A++ food.

“romantic dinner ”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

we noticed this restaurant while taking pictures of the eiffel tower, and decided to try them for dinner. i had the chicken special and my hubby went for a burger. we both enjoyed our dinner (although next time i'll ask for the sauce on the side)
our waiter was attentive, and polite. we loved that he did not hover over us nor did we feel rushed. the menu was moderately priced as well.

Thank mstru

“Don't go there, girlfriend”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

The service was terrible, the prices were terrible, the food was bland, and there was cigarette smoke in our faces the whole time we ate. When trying to ask if the establishment took credit cards, my mother was brushed off by two waiters who were standing talking to each other and made to wait seven minutes for the only waiter who seemed to be working to answer get question. I ordered the French onion soup and got some vague broth with shredded parmesan the slightest hint of onion. We asked the waiter why there was no onion in the soup and he replied "they don't really know how to do that here." Would not recommend.
