Waiters are not very welcoming and the food is mediocre. Caviar d'aubergine and gambas with guacamole as a starter were ok but disappointing compared to the very good comments. The meat quality is good. There are just two sides to choose from and the mashed potatoes don't have much taste. Altogether there are many places with a far better price-quality... More

Recommendation came from staff at Hotel Gustave and we weren't disappointed. The food was excellent and we had an very helpful and friendly server...everything we ordered was delicious...if you love pork dishes, or even if you don't, you will love the food at this restaurant.

We had very simple food but it was cooked just perfectly: grilled pig ears, pate de boudin as appetizers, then grilled dorade and lamb chops as plats principaux. Everything was made 'just right,' not overspiced but not bland either, served at the right temperature. Their house red (I picked one of the two by random) was very, very good. Service... More

Fantastic French food. Service was excellent considering the menu was in French and we only speak English. The waitress explained everything on the menu well. Their signature pork dish was so tasty and cooked perfectly. We decided on dessert and ordered the fruit salad which was the best I had in Europe. We also shared the chocolate tart, perfect to...

We ate here 2 times because the food and the experience were exceptional. The wait staff does not speak much English and the menu is written on a black board and is hard to read so bring your food dictionary. There was an excellent selection of entrees. We chose razor clams after we talked to the French couple sitting next... More

My boyfriend and I were in our first time ever in Paris. We stayed at the Hotel Apollon Montparnasse and they have a book where other clients write about their opiniones of best places in Paris. We saw La Cantine Du Troquet in it and decided to try it because it was near the hotel. We were absolutely pleased with... More

If you don't like those tacky (and expensive) bistros around the Eiffel Tower, this is your place. Genuine french food without labels. Great staff and fresh ingredients.

This small place was strongly recommended to us by the hotel staff and they were absolutely correct. We were in Paris a week and ended up having dinner there three times! Might have been more, but the restaurant is closed both Sunday and Monday. Wife and I had different meals each time, but all of them were great, and might... More

Nice cozy atmosphere. My salmon was cooked perfectly. My husband had veal which was delicious. Main dishes come with potatoes to share. This is a very popular place - go early because it gets crowded.
