My wife and I had a late night dinner here last night and we both give it five stars. The way they prepared the escargot was sublime. The steak frites were to die for and the chocolate soufflés cake was divine. The waiter, Renoir is fabulous and right out of central casting and he dog Gaspar completed the experience. Run,... More

I have been living in Paris for 12 years and it is very seldom that I find such a good Salmon dish in a restaurant. Perfectly cooked, seasoned, portioned, and garnished. Absolutely perfect!! For 20€ only! The other items we've tried on the menu were delicious too!! Friendly staff. Lovely little cosy and romantic restaurant with charming deco. The perfect... More

Buzzy street with lots of bars, restaurants and galleries and lots going on. The menu is unusual while remaining firmly French. Service friendly and welcoming, restaurant dog is greedy. Not cheap but a really nice evening

Came here for a dinner reservation on Valentine's Day. Lovely food that was full of flavour and great service with the waiter knowing great English! He also was able to recommend a lovely red wine to us which complimented the beef well. Lovely quiet location , would visit again and hope to soon!

The hotel recommended this bistro for our final meal and it did not disappoint. Cozy, with a good crowd - the food was simple and scrumptious. The staff were welcoming and the setting very quaint with the menu written in chalk on a board. The house pour was quite good and we lingered over dessert. I definitely recommend it.

Had a wonderful two-hour lunch at La Bonne Cecile with an excellent 3 course menu for 20 Euros. Although we were a group of 5 mixed French and Foreigners - all first timers - we were welcome as part of the local crowd. Heard that the dinner menu is excellent, definitely needs a second visit. BTW, so popular reservations are... More

A colleague and I had one night in Paris before flying back and I'm just glad the hotel concierge recommended La Bonne Cecile. Started out with a couple of cocktails and then a perfect meal with an excellent wine suggestion. Both meals were excellent - the service was great and their recommendations were spot on.

We really enjoyed La Bonne in this vibrant part of Paris. The staff are delightful and very happy to explain the menu in English. The food was brilliant, 3 courses were all great. Ceviche was great but the duck and beetroot salad was a standout. My main course of duck and raspberry was also brilliant.
