“Great find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

We stumbled upon this cozy establishment after finding the one recommended to us up the street a bit on the stuffy side. As one previous reviewer put it you were made to feel at home. The owner seated us and not only served us but gave recommendations for food, wine, and desert. Our meals were fantastic from start to finish. This is a very small restaurant and you're likely to find that the owner does pretty much everything besides the actual cooking - so if they're busy here you may find yourselves waiting a while for the owner to take your order or present you with the check - but hang in there! We were only in town for one night so this was perfect and much better than some of the other restaurants we patronized during our previous visit to Paris.

“Best dinner we had in Paris.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012

This is a very nice restaurant. Not nice as in "posh", but nice as in friendly with well cooked food and great atmosphere. It almost felt as if you were dining in someone's home.

There are 3x4 courses (starter, main, dessert) to choose from the a la carte-menu, and there are a few more options written down on a large chalk board, so there's plenty to choose from (and more than is shown on the webpage). Wine was terrific and I especially like how we were recommended one of the cheaper wines when we asked for a suggestion.

The entire meal was excellent, from starters to dessert.

Service was, like I said, excellent, though somewhat confusing at times. No wonder, since the owner (one of two brothers?) is serving the restaurant alone.

Next time I come to Paris, I will definitely visit Les Ronchons again, at least once.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2012

Don't be put off by the furnishings which are a bit 'tired' - the food more than makes up for it. We had lobster bisque and a really interesting baked egg in a red wine sauce for starters followed by peppered beef, a fish of the day and a very different rabbit dish! The high spot was the OTT rhum baba - especially when the owner came over to pour extra rum over it!! A quaint and welcoming little restaurant.

“Good French food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2011

My partner and I went to this restaurant on our first night in Paris. We weren't terribly hungry, but the food was well presented and good, the owner friendly (English-speaking) and the overall experience a good one. Although it is advertised as having a view, there wasn't one inside the restaurant. The prices were moderate.

“A friendly Parisian restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2011

Charming, friendly service from the owner, who also possesses a great sense of humour. We were given good advice in selecting from the menu (but not patronised or humiliated for our poor French). The owners full description of the wine demonstrated the passion felt for wine in this establishment. The food was well presented and delicious. In our opinion, extremely good value for money and a splendid evening.
