This little bistro is located right near Notre Dame and the Seine and is next door to Shakespeare and Company bookstore.. It has really nice ambiance both inside and out, and the sidewalk seats afford great people watching. The food, however, is just average and the prices are quite high. For example, and half carafe of Rose was 20 Euros. Also, I had coquille St. Jacques and it was just Okay. The service was efficient but not particularly friendly.

On our last day in Paris, I was looking for a nice place to have lunch after visiting Notre-Dame. A quick look on tripadviser provided details of Le Petit Chatelet, which was a very good choice.

My wife enjoyed the lamb skewers and I opted for the fillet steak, washed down by a bottle of Cotes du Rhône. We shared the best crepes I have ever tasted. Not bad for under 80 euro.

My only criticism was my steak was slightly over cooked, more medium than medium rare, but the quality and presentation of the food was excellent.

Definitely a place I would recommend in one of the most beautiful cities I have ever been to.

We dined here twice during our two weeks stay in Paris, and both experiences were very good for all four of us. Indoors/outdoors, both are nice, so let the weather decide for you. This is a popular place, but they work very hard to get their guests seated in a reasonable amount of time.

We stopped into this restaurant on a whim after visiting Shakespeare & Company next door, and were blown away by our dinner! The service was impeccable, and each of our dishes (chicken and salmon) was delicious. Even without a reservation, we were seated immediately and quickly served. Unfortunately for other people, as the evening stretched on many were not able to get a seat. A reservation might be a good idea, or make it an early dinner (we were there at about 6-6:30).
