This was a repeat visit to Au Bon Accueil, and it was terrific again. We had made reservations well in advance for dinner.

Everything was freshly prepared and cooked beautifully. They have a nice selection of wines (by the glass and by the bottle). The starters, mains and deserts were delicious (we enjoyed the duck confit and lamb this time.).

The entire staff was friendly and attentive.

After dinner, it is just a short stroll to the Eiffel tower.

Thank you Laurent and team for another memorable meal.

Stepped out from the taxi and we were met with the Eiffel Tower watching over us ....in we step to a classic French restaurant the waiters were charming and helped interpret the menu.

Wow the food was sensational and good value wines on offer - we went for a cheeky white 20 Euro bottle and it was delicious .

We had three course special and the octopus , fish and rum barber were to die for ..

Strongly recommend

A short walk to the Eiffel Tower

Really excellent French food on a side street not far from the Eiffel Tower. I slipped in without a reservation and literally got the last seat. I would advise reservations. Had great waiters who were quite friendly. Menu is only in French but they will help translate if you need it. Each dish was exquisitely prepared and quite delicate. Interesting combinations mixing traditional preparations with more unusual ingredients and spices. A+ on presentation across the board.

Thank esemmes

Au bon Accueil serves a mix of classic French and family/bistro style food, but elevated to a higher level.

Situated about as close as a restaurant can get to the Eifel Tower, it is an unassuming place, but one that really delivers.

Unlike many place in the neighbourhood, this is decidedly not a tourist trap.

Highly recommended.

This was my third time eating at Au Bon Accueil. I had a business trip in Italy and we detoured to Paris in February. The first two times that I ate here were in the summer, and we sat outside the restaurant facing the Eiffel Tower. The menus are in French but are easily translated - the wait staff will also help.

PROS: Excellent food, fantastic view of the Eiffel tower if sitting outside, Decent wine list, with a good half bottle selection. The mashed potatoes are awesome.

CONS: The wait staff is OK - neither very helpful or very bad. At times it felt they were too busy to stop at our table, which caused us to feel rude by stopping them. The inside seating feels cramped.

Dear Kevin,

Thank you for your comments on TripAdvisor and were are delighted you are enjoying our food and our restaurant since it is your third visit. Indeed it is much more pleasant in summer while you can dine outside while seeing the Eiffel Tower, hence why when it tends to get busy in winter the restaurant feels a little bit more uncomfortable due to its small size. We try to be as available as possible for our customers, but as the restaurant has less activity at this time of the year, we have less staff on.
Do not hesitate to make yourself known on your next visit so we could discuss it further
Kind regards
