I heard this restaurant is great, so I went for lunch one day. I guess the food was good for the price, but it was certainly not amazing. The appetizer was great but both the main menu and the dessert were below my expectations. I couldn't understand why it's so popular. Also, the service was not great and one of... More

This place has very good food, friendly waiters and Parisian feel. Very small. I recommend for lunch if you are in the area.

We found this place by accident and sat down for dinner at one of the outside tables. Both entrees and main courses were very reasonably priced and the staff was very nice as well. The chef also came out to chat with people sitting in the dining area and outside as well. The food was excellent and a good representation... More

We dined here on our arrival night in Paris, having carried out a lot of research and it was extremely close to our hotel (which also recommended this bistro). It was very popular - although unsure why as the food was very basic, really lacked flavour and served on tiny plates. We enjoy a wide range of food and sometimes... More

The long queue is certainly an indication of the quality of Cafe Constant. Excellent service who were patient and friendly to English, French and Portuguese speakers! Food was divine - interesting unique combinations for a fair price. I have gone with friends and colleagues for business and will be back again. The young chef is talented and creates beautiful dishes.... More

We chose the free-range patte bleue chicken with bacon strips, pearl onions and mushrooms. Tender and moist to the taste. Only 16Euro on the chalkboard special. For dessert we shared prunes in a red wine sauce. Only 7Euro. Delicious and very much in our price range. Don't miss this great café.

I was never disappointed at Cafe Constant where you get good dishes for reasonable prices in quite a posh area of Paris. The service is rather nice and you always spend a good time there.

I really like the casual atmosphere of this place and the idea of eating at a cafe owned by a renowned chef at a relatively reasonable price. Unfortunately, the food didn't live up to the expectations I had of a big name chef. It was good, but not refined and it didn't have that little extra flavor / something a... More

This appears to be "just another sweet cafe" among many others on this pleasant street, but Constant makes his simple food here with all the integrity of his other, pricier, establishments. We wandered into it on a stroll one day, happened upon an open table, and our little lunch became one of the most memorable moments in our week-long foodie... More

A place to have a quick snack that is made from exceptional products for a more than affordable price in Paris. Plus, the chef is a superstar in Paris!
