The food was lovely - service friendly and helpful. This is my type of restaurant - clearly it is where the locals eat. No tourist trap here. No English menu - which is a very good sign; but the waitresses very helpful in endeavouring to translate. I'll be back.

We were seated inside upstairs where it was very hot without AC. We had 3 Entree ($45 euro )and 4 Plat du jour (46 euro). I think we had the salmon tartare which was like mush. The other plates were unmemorable. The service was fantastic. They brought a jug of water and ice!! We were so thirsty from the heat.... More

Enjoyed a memorable evening of traditional French dining at Les Petits Plats D'Emile with friends last Thursday, April 14th! Old style brassierie not far from the Louvre museum it was busy, packed with a youngish crowd of diners that night. Among us we ordered and tasted just about every dish on the menu. The organic salmon was cooked to perfection,... More

From when we walked in we were greeted by such a friendly waitress. Everything about this place is lovely. The service is relaxed and personable. We ordered cocktails first and they were great! We skipped the starters and had a main. My mum had the duck with honey and ginger and it was delicious. I had the sea bream and... More
