Dessert was the highlight..profiteroles were quite good as was the rice pudding..pumpkin soup was excellent..main course of roasted chicken was fine but certainly not exceptional and the steak with mashed potatoes was forgettable..steak was tough and potatoes were almost puréed..service was good but do not understand all the rave reviews..this place must have changed over the last few years

A travel buff and foodie recommended this restaurant so we tried it after our visit to L'Orangerie. We each had the veal and were quite pleased. Obviously a local favorite,,,we were the only Americans in the restaurant for lunch. Well worth a visit

First meal in Paris and we were off on a high note! The place is small... We sat on the tiniest table I've ever sat on in my life, so close to the other diners. I started off with some sparkling and the salmon and oyster tartare which was wonderful. Next course was the steak and potatoes which was done... More

This place had some amazing coffee. Only had breakfast here in this tiny cafe/restaurant so I can't say much. The eggs were cooked nicely but what I did notice was how fresh the food was - from the orange juice to the eggs! Would visit again for a meal. =)

After our visit to the Eiffel Tower, our group was famished and wanted some good eats nearby. Unfortunately, there are few restaurants that are open during the late afternoon. Thankfully we were able to find Cafe Constant. It was about a 10 minute walk from the Eiffel Tower. There were five of us so we were seated upstairs. We chose... More

On vacation I like trying unique food so we came to this place and I tried poached cod with seasonal vegetables for my main entree; pickled salmon as an appetizer; and a Gallia lager to drink. Everything was prepared exceptionally well and tasted great. The pickled salmon was the biggest surprise as it was way better than I expected it... More

Happened upon this place for their beers which are comfortably priced which in Paris can be a challenge. I then asked the concierge at our hotel for a place to go that was not a tourist trap. Low and behold I head back to Cafe Constant but not realising it was the same place. What a surprise to find their... More

food is okay, not impressive, seats are small, i can barely touch the elbow of the person seating right next to me, quite embarrassing, not a relaxing place to go

Café Constant: Things have changed at this one of Chef Christian Constant’s three places to eat on the same block on rue Saint-Dominique in the 7th arrondisement of Paris. We typically spend 2, 3, or 4 months in Paris each year and have eaten at Café Constant well-over 40 times. It used to be a good place for a well-prepared,... More
