“Excellent place to dine out”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We were wandering in the area and found this restaurant that looked nice so we decided to try it.
The outdoors area was great, the waiters are nice and helpful. We choosed the Kind Prawns with Risotto and the Thick steak with potatoes which were both excellent.
After paying the check, we asked the nice waitress to open us our bottle of wine, she gladly did and said she will open it but we cant drink from it at their place (logic).
The overall experience was great and the food is worth every cent.

“OH MY GOD”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We went here because the menu looked nice and so did the seats. Even though you pay a lot, it's still very good. The waiters were nice and the presentation of food was excellent ps the gooey cake was luscious.

“Classic French bistro”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We stayed in the Montmarte area and were wandering around when we found this restaurant. We decided to dine outdoors and had a wonderful meal! The onion soup was terrific - completely covered with cheesy crust and lots of onions and rich broth. The beef chuck was great - slow cooked and shredded. Nice wine list with excellent but inexpensive wines. Most of the staff members are bilingual and menu is also available in English. Do not miss this place if you are in the Montmarte area!

“Unchanged epitome of French auberge”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

I was in Paris using a 1929 Guide Bleu. There are almost no restaurants which are mentioned in the guide and which still exist in Paris but this is one. I imagine that anyone suddenly transported from the 1920s to the current Avenue Trudaine, a short walk south east of Place Pigalle would recognise the Auberge du Clou, and possibly even the food it serves. Glorious onion soup with a complete seal formed by the cheesy crust, meltingly soft pork and puy lentils in a sweet grain mustard sauce, cheese from the Auvergne. Inexpensive wines can be had by the carafe and the wood and plaster interior , simple decorations and friendly bi-lingual staff make this a delight. If you don't like this place, you won't like Paris .

“Twice nice”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

We had lunch twice as we are staying in an apartment nearby. Great service, English menus, classic French bistro. Very good steak tartare. Also a good hamburger was had by one. Wine is reasonable price.
