If you want a place to have a meal, with confort, good food and nice people, look no further.
The staff is very friendly and nice. At diner allways are jazz playing in the sound system, warming and relaxing. Good prices.

This place is located in a charming side street in the Butte aux Cailles and has a kind of comfy, haphazard charm in the decor.
But don't be fooled like we were. My wife was served a salade gourmande that looked like it was diced up by a four year-old left alone with a knife. What's worse, the foie gras in it was so off that it was starting to ferment. My brochettes d'agneau consisted of knarled, undercooked pieces of meat. The "cheese platter" was apparently the chef's idea of a joke - 5 pieces of cheap feta with one piece of something non-descript.

If you come upon this place just keeping walking. There are plenty of proper restaurants on the rue de la Butte aux Cailles 50 meters up the street.

We spent my girlfriend´s birthday in Paris in order to experience the "non-touristic" Paris as much as we could. We lived in a hotel nearby, in this lovely neighbourhood and found this amazing beautiful place to have a Sunday late lunch. The weather was great and the windows were wide open so the fresh air combined with amazing meal we had really made our day. The place is neat, yet has this special "old" atmosphere. The meal was simply amazing, we really enjoyed it and Le Samson quickly became one of the best places I´ve ever visited. The staff was unbilievably friendly and helpful and still not overbearing or annoying. It was one of our last days in Paris and this was a perfect "ending" to our trip! When we come back to Paris, we´re gonna come to Le Samson!

Thank you!

I had the cochon au lait and it was delicious -- simple, hearty fare. The serving was of an extraordinary size, I couldn't finish it. Especially since it came after a nice-sized appetiser of foie gras.

Nice little place off of Place de Italie. Decent prix fixe menu, friendly service. Our party had the duck and salmon dishes offered off of the prix fixe menu and were not disappointed. Decent value in a city which can bring high-priced dining.
