We ate here on recommendation from a friend. What a great place! A really old, traditional restaurant serving French home made cuisine. Brilliant personal service from friendly staff, who also translated the menu. Wonderful

I have never been a restaurant in Paris like Chez Marcel. The owner and staff are so welcomed attitude, super friendly and very chatty. We had a great experience there.

This was a special experience. We were recommended this restaurant by our flight attendant and from the moment we walked in, the entire staff was all smiles. The proprietor was incredible--he saw that it was getting dark so he brought me a blanket (!) and gave us drinks to welcome us --the atmosphere here is fantastic, the tables are smushed together so everyone ends up having lively conversations with their neighbors (in a mix of languages the night we ate there). The food is homey and well-crafted, with Lyon flavor--my fish souffle was delicious, and we shared a millefeuille for dessert which was perfect. I highly recommend you go for authentic French atmosphere and warmth! (Plus the prices are extremely reasonable.)
