“Best food on our trip to Paris”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

We popped in for lunch after a trip up the Eiffel Tower and got a table for four immediately. The restaurant had been recommended in my guide book so I expected it to be busy, and it was. There was a mix of tourists and locals, which is always a good sign.

Our waiter was good, helpful and efficient. Drinks arrived quickly despite the place being busy,

The highlight was the food, which was the best we had during our five day trip to Paris. Extremely tasty and beautifully prepared, it made a welcome change from the bland, conservative food we experienced in most other places. It was also reasonable value.

The tables were close together and it was perhaps lacking a little in ambience, but this was more than compensated by the excellent food and pleasant service.

Reviewed July 28, 2013

we turned up to go to the bigger restaurant a couple of buildings away but found it was full to the brim with a queue outside aswell, we then saw this little place owned by the same person. we sat down and had a lovely evening with fantastic food, the staff where very attentive. we then finished off the evening with a 5 minute walk to the Eiffel tour which was lit up and sparkling.

“French food at a good price on the tourist beat”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

My wife and I went here because of suggestions from both locals and friends. It is very popular and since you can't book it can mean quite a wait. We were given a seat in about 45 minutes. The people at the table next to us were locals and raved about the aiolli. Our food was fairly quick and was really good. It was our last night in France after 2 weeks in burgundy and 10 days in Paris and walking from our apartment we passed the Eiffel tower at sunset and it all came together well.The wines were simple but well priced and a lovely bottle of beaujolais was perfect.

“Great lunch value”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

The fixed price lunch menu is a great value. It's small, but where isn't in Paris? Our teens also enjoyed their meals, nice location, especially for lunch before strolling over to the Eiffel tower. We ate at les cocottes in 2010, in my opinion cafe constant is better, both the food quality and the value.
