This little gem of a place is as crowded as I've ever been in a restaurant. But we went back for a second meal a few nights later. Why because the seasoning was amazing and the quality of the fillet was one of the best...More

You don't go here for a romantic 'diner a deux'! The tables are so close that to get out the waitresses have to pull out your table completely. There is a lively bustle and hubbub and it serves very good bistro fare at very reasonable...More

Our friend recommended this Michelin star restaurant and we made reservation a few weeks prior to our trip. We were worried that there were restriction on the attire but casual is fine. My fiancée and I were happy with every dish we ordered: avocado crab...More

We were nicely packed in, but the atmosphere was pleasant and unhurried; the main courses (chicken fricassee with wild mushroom risotto , and a squid dish (!) were absolutely delicious - probably the best chicken I have ever tasted; husband says likewise about his squid...More

This is lovely little restaurant. The tables are definitely close together, as other reviewers have stated, but we didn't find this at all objectionable. The service was excellent, and the food was wonderful! Staff spoke very good English. Price was reasonable--2 three-course dinners and 2...More

My husband and I took advantage of the 38 euro three course meal for our last night in Paris, which you get starter, main and dessert. We didn't have a reservation but arrived at opening at 6:30pm on a Sunday night, which was clearly way...More

I wanted to have a last night's dinner in a casual restaurant with my 10 year old son. I couldn't go to a stuff restaurant but wanted something other than chicken fingers. The concierge at the Sofitel Faubourg recommended this place and one other -...More

We have been coming here for years. There is a pre fixe 3 course offering a variety of options. There are up charges for a number of the entrees and apps. Be prepared....this is a very small venue. You will unavoidably be part of your...More

l'Ardoise was recommended by our hotel and decided to give it a try. On arrival, we couldn't believe how tight the seating was - almost no space between tables for two. We had starters, main course & desert, and every dish was both a feast...More

We arrived at opening and were warmly greeted. Hostess did a nice job of walking us through the menu. Crabcake with shrimp and avacado, white asparagus for starters. Both had the rack of lamb. Deserts were cherries w/almond ice cream, and a version of rum...More

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops

Are reservations needed on a Sunday? We will just be arriving in Paris after a long flight, and not sure what time we'll be ready to eat!

Laura, I gave this restaurant just an average rating, and said I probably would not return. It is adequate if you do not have high expectations. There are better restaurants in the area, just not open on Sunday. I would... More
