Ate here for dinner. Huge helpings. They have a menu in English. Very small and casual. My oldest had a burger and youngest chicken kebab. My husband had potato stuffed with chicken curry and I had pasta with chicken. Dry reasonably priced and kid-friendly.

The service was great, the food too and there was lots of it. The only thing that could be better was that it was a little cold near the door and the windows near the entrance. Recommendable

Canteen Bus Gobelins is a benchmark for good living! No risk of being hungry! Open 7/7, Midi & Evening, all summer, reservations recommended! All our dishes are out! In the warm atmosphere of the room paneling, film takes the form of famous faces in his black frames and invites you to share our giant specialties in a vintage atmosphere. Our gourmet menu comes in fresh hearty dishes and desserts giants which some homemade. To accompany these giant plates, Canteen Bus Gobelins, innovates and offers a wine of the month, a wine grower, from the 1st coast of Bordeaux selected by Emmanuel Delmas, renowned sommelier. You will also be charmed by our original beer month, Belgian beer ginger which imparts a unique taste of power and sweetness. Finally, Canteen Bus Gobelins rhymes with Cinema Malin! Exclusive partner UGC Gobelins, we offer "Premieres" and "Pass Solo" throughout the year without forgetting our animations (his roulette and riddle blackboard with his surprise gift if you find it!) .
