Come here for classic, heavy French bistro fare (think boeuf bourguignon, riz de veau, confit de canard) in an authentic old Paris setting. The restaurant is quite small so you need to reserve in advance. Don't miss the millefeuille.

We had a wonderful dinner with my family of 7. Beef bourguignon was excellent. Salmon was equally delicious. The best were the desserts - soufflé and mille-feuille. It’s well worth a visit.

Looks good on pictures, but it was BIG disappointment coming to eat there. It was like expecting a juicy tasty burger and getting McDonald instead.

To the best of my knowledge, you cannot reserve at Josephine Chez Dumonet online (and definitely not on the Paris Forum), you will need to telephone to make a reservation.
