We managed to get a table for two on spec even though it was very busy. The bookings diary looked full for weeks so I think we were lucky . Food was excellent as you would expect from a small french restaurant . The only odd dish was the cheese which is a served with dressed lettuce !

We just had the pleasure of being treated to dinner at this wonderful restaurant - and it was amazing. For a fixed price of 39 euros apiece, we enjoyed an appetizer, a main course and a dessert, and each was flavorful and expertly prepared. I can't wait to visit again on our next trip to Paris. If you want to... More

A must try in Paris. The dishes are not too big but extremely flavorous. Also, the service is nice. Le chardenoux is a must do in your Paris list.

We chanced upon Le Chardenoux cutting through some minor streets on the way back to the hotel Boutet, saw how busy it was and the presentation of the food and immediately booked for the next evening (and even then could only get a table on the pavement). Excellent food, great service, a really pleasant meal in an obviously popular restaurant... More

Quiet neighborhood in the 11th - sympa - cordial -- representative and at 39 euros for prix fixe, an excellent value. Two couples enjoyed a quiet dinner in a very typical setting -- tables close, but with the quiet atmosphere that allows for civilized conversation. Our entrees included tasty fois gras, seasonal girolles and a salad. Mains included the daily... More

Recommended and reserved by the Hotel Boutet. Great choice. Just a short walk from the hotel. Very French and with local diners which is always a good indication. Also full and need reservation. This kitchen of Cyril Lignac is traditional in all ways. Menus, portions, wine list, service, atmosphere, etc.etc.. Next time in Paris will definitely return

Agree with another reviewer that this is a very French sort of restaurant. There is a very typical French neighborhood ambiance. The food was delicious. We had the farm tomato on toast and shredded crab with warm potato for appetizers; grilled beef steak and cod for main dish; a sorbet and chocolate lava cake with passion fruit sauce for desert....

Went there with friends only because of Cyril Lignac. The decor was nice and cosy like in an old style bistro. Service was nice and quick. Was a bit disappointed with the lunch menu which was reasonable but not to a Chef's standard. I guess you pay for the name. Try it once but don't think I would go back.... More

Charming little restaurant, close to the metro. It's a small restaurant, very nicely decorated in a French way. You have to take the menu for 39 euro (evening, lunch is cheaper) with lots of choice. Service was prefect. I would definitely recommend.
