We stayed in a hotel in Rueil Malmaison on for our visit to Paris. Looking for a bistro we found this L'Estaminet on the corner of the street where we were staying. A perfect meal and great service.

Food is well made and tasty. The Menu is simple and clear. I love this place because of the service ( Sara ) she will guide you and makes this meal a fantastic one. Should return there to try other than stater and dessert.

It is one of my favorite restaurants in Rueil. The food is delicious, and served in generous proportions by a smiling and warm-welcoming staff.

Although the place is at the corner of two streets, there was no nice inside. The food was very good and all the meals well presented to us. The service was very good too and we only have to say that the tables are too close to have the feeling to share your meal with the table next door.

Went for dinner after a long day's work on a business trip. Was greeted by pleasant staff with no reservations. Service was relaxed yet attentive. I had the confit de canard and my colleague the rougeau fish. Both enjoyed our dinners and service. It became clear that this is a popular neighborhood hangout. Altogether a pleasant experience.

We booked this restaurant via The Fork as it had good reviews but was near to our accommodation, we knew we might be late so didn't want to waste time. What a great place! Both the servers were friendly and attentive even though it was pretty busy. We ordered the aubergine and the artichoke starters, both were really tasty. We... More

I stopped here for lunch on my way to an exhibition at the Atelier Grognard and a visit to the Chateau de Malmaison. Although the restaurant was empy when I arrived at noon, it soon filled up. The food was good and reasonably priced, and the service friendly.

the food was average. The tiramisu marron glaçé was quite nice. Abit noisy for lunch as there were a lot of clients from nearby companies.
