Worst dining experience of my life. The waitress appeared to be friendly and helpful but upon getting the bill she added a €7.50 tip to the card payment (the bill was €25.00 with service) without telling me and in a very sly way. When I noticed and challenged it she started saying how Paris does not have tips on the... More

Despite the really bad reviews, we've eaten often at this Paris, which is open 24/7. We'd always had excellent service and good food. No more. Great greeting. Nice table. Asian server was nice, but disappeared. Black server was just nasty and invisible. My onion soup (hardly a challenging choice), tasted like dishwater, with floor scrapings. After two spoons, I'd had... More

I went to Les Relais d'Alsace for a lae lunch with my friend from London that was visiting Paris for the second time. She tried the typical Flammekueche and loved it, she is vegetarian. I would recommend the salmon Flammekueche. Try the Alsatian wines also (white : Pinot Gris, Riesling). As for me I had meat, very good as well.... More

Stayed as a family in the Crown Plaza on the Place de la Republique - not wanting to venture too far on our first night and with serious doubts about the streets behind the hotel, we took a chance on this welcoming looking eaterie right by the hotel. Menu was sufficiently broad to accommodate adults and children's tastes. We actually... More

We went there for a small cake-break during our shopping trip through Les Halles shoppingmall. The applecake I've had was amazing good, and also the coffee and the service. We definitly would come back again.

The onion soup was good mix of the bread, cheese and onion. Not overwhelming. Escargot not that fantastic but still fine. The sausage and meat platter with sauerkraut sealed the deal. The best part, the staff even offered to reheat our meal. Very attentive staff indeed.

Visited the Republique square to pay our respects to those caught up in the Paris attacks. Suddenly it started really raining and we needed lunch so we went straight into this restaurant. There was a pleasant greeting and we were shown to a lovely little table by the window. We both had Croque Madame with French fries and salad. The... More

Brilliant sea food menu cooked fresh and to perfection. Very welcoming genuine service. Can't see what people are saying about the service lacking. Excellent all round would recommend and potentially return if ever in Paris again.

We were 5 families and although the first approach of a female waiter was a bit negative to accommodate us the outstanding service of waiter 'Bari' turned a good dinner to excellent. Most of the dishes were delicious and excellent and some were average, but the willingness of Bari to satisfy all of our requests and our difficult children left... More

Staying at a nearby hotel and wanted to eat out, I found this place which was fairly quite at 9pm. Was shown to a tiny table and asked to sit at a larger table, which was refused as the table was for four.... The restaurant was less than a 1/3 full, and shortly after a couple came in and were...
