“Fantastic find off the beaten track”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

Found this restaurant via Trip Advisor and was a short walk from our hotel. What a find! We went early on Tuesday evening on the off chance of a table and received a warm welcome. Our French isn't the best but didn't have to worry as the menu was explained to us and we went with the house recommendation of falafel and houmous to start with and followed with the trio of meats finished with baklava all washed down with a very nice Lebanese red wine. The restaurant quickly filled up and most people were welcomed like part of the family. Madeleine was delightful and popped through from the kitchen on numerous occasions inbetween cooking. A selection of customers also popped in to collect takeaway orders. If I lived near Chez Madeleine I wouldn't do much cooking either. I would happily travel from the other side of Paris to dine there too. Well worth a visit.

“A cozy evening with great Lebanese food”
Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

Situated in a calm side street in Boulogne this is an address you don't want to miss if you like Lebanese. Madeleine in the kitchen prepares delicious dishes with lots of aroma served in a delicate manner. Try the Chawarma beef as a dish with a Lebanese red wine. Enjoy!

“Best homemade Lebanese cuisine”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Just walk in and the feeling of belongingness to this cosy place is there. You are helped to the large selection of dishes (if you are not used to Lebanese cuisine). the food is there and the taste is awesome. What is the secret? If you were Lucky to step in the kitchen, you see chef Madeleine busy preparing every dish herself, with her natural smile. I will not describe all the food I ate and enjoyed , but assure you that the taste is there: freshness, generosity, and a smile on top. Needless to mention Madeleine's generosity with extra fruits and sweets (for free depending on the chef's mood). You walk out saying I will be back , because you realize it was excellent value for money.

“Awesome Meal-Delightful Service”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We stumbled onto this delightful Lebanese restaurant and what a gem! We were an hour early for dinner (Parisians eat later than we do) and were told we should come back later. We returned but we were still a half an hour early. Nevertheless, the manager, George, said, "Come on in and sit down." He could see we were hungry and needed a place to rest. Thank you! We had wine, and chatted while the kitchen came together for the evening service. Voila, George returned and we said, "Do your thing." What a meal! If you like Lebanese food, the food is as good or better than anywhere we have had this cuisine. The best part is George. What a gentleman. We'll be back!

“Delicious Lebanese cuisine”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

One of the best lebanese cuisine I had in Paris, if not the best. I highly recommend the mezze assortment to try as much as you can.
The service is very friendly. It is extremely crowded on Wednesday to Saturday: a testimony to the quality of the place but book in advance. Tuesdays are much quieter.
