After reading previous reviews we decided to go here for an evening meal, but unfortunatly i wish i hadnt. I ordered a medium steak...and it came out well done, full of fat, so much so i couldnt eat it..it also had a really bad flavour. My husband also ordered the same..which also was bad. We had ordered a pitcher of... More

Popped in, looks basic, very welcoming.... Service excellent, food in abundance, you will not leave hungry, proprietor very helpful, even giving us his peers mobile in case we had problems during our stay in Paris, better than any "bistro" by far, thank you very much..,,. Definitely a must visit if your hungry.

The service was great, the food too and there was lots of it. The only thing that could be better was that it was a little cold near the door and the windows near the entrance. Recommendable

We were wondering where to have our last dinner in Paris and we were suggested to go to this place across the street. Totally exceeded our expectations! Service is great, people are extremely friendly and funny, and most important... FOOD IS DELICIOUS and very generous, especially if you're starving after a long tourism walk during the day. Menu is available... More

It was my last night in Paris and we pretty much tried all type of food in the area of the 13e. A couple of times we passed by this crowded restaurant that is the canteen bus... We decided to stop there since the menu seemed not too pricey and big portions (I was hungry!). We asked for a table... More

We had heard about this place and the huge portions so thought we'd give it a go. They really weren't lying when they said the portions are huge! I had the 400g chicken burger, my partner had the 400g beef burger and they both came with a huge side order of fried potato slices and salad. I just about finished... More

It doesn't look like much but it's cosy and the decor is interesting. The staff are friendly and have a great sense of humor. The casual atmosphere is a welcome relief in Paris. The burgers are huge with salad and fried potato. Very good! The Chocolate Mousse is amazing. Perfect end to the day when you are very hungry after... More

This is a quaint, local place serving Italian food in objectively large portions. A great place to go if you want to relax somewhere casual and fill up after a long day of walking. The owner really made the experience for us - he's a laid back, friendly guy who makes you feel at home.

Thank Jeffrey P

Canteen Bus Gobelins is a benchmark for good living! No risk of being hungry! Open 7/7, Midi & Evening, all summer, reservations recommended! All our dishes are out! In the warm atmosphere of the room paneling, film takes the form of famous faces in his black frames and invites you to share our giant specialties in a vintage atmosphere. Our gourmet menu comes in fresh hearty dishes and desserts giants which some homemade. To accompany these giant plates, Canteen Bus Gobelins, innovates and offers a wine of the month, a wine grower, from the 1st coast of Bordeaux selected by Emmanuel Delmas, renowned sommelier. You will also be charmed by our original beer month, Belgian beer ginger which imparts a unique taste of power and sweetness. Finally, Canteen Bus Gobelins rhymes with Cinema Malin! Exclusive partner UGC Gobelins, we offer "Premieres" and "Pass Solo" throughout the year without forgetting our animations (his roulette and riddle blackboard with his surprise gift if you find it!) .
