Hipsters in Paris (2015) “Basically its busy, vibrant, disorganised, inexpensive and (usually) delicious. Go in with reasonable expectations about the service and decor and you will exit supremely satisfied.”

John Talbott (2014) “… a Chinese/Cambodian/Laotian/Thai/etc. place on the Southern edge of the city that is one of our two friends’ favorite Asian places.”

David Lebovitz (2014) “If you’re looking for a pitcher of real iced tea, unsweetened… this is the real deal… unlike the take-outs around town, the dim sum here is made in-house.”

 L’Express (2012) “Service rapide et prix raisonnables…”

Chez Ptipois (2005) “…une des meilleures adresses de Paris pour les dim sum…”

Alexander Lobrano (2015) “Served with charm and a deep professional knowledge of proper table service, this meal was the kind of feed upon which the good reputation of French cooking was originally constructed, because what this food says is that you can eat well even when you’re not interested in making a fuss about it or spending too much money.”

The New York Times (2013) “La Rotonde, a 1911 vintage brasserie in Montparnasse, accommodates both the real and imagined realities of the city, all without sacrificing good food…the politely wisecracking service is brisk in the brasserie tradition. More important, the traditional comfort cooking is not only well executed but often made with pedigreed ingredients.”

Ann Mah (2015) “The food at Bouillon Chartier isn’t that bad. But the truth is, no one comes here for the food… 1) We wanted to meet near les Grands Boulevards; and 2) It’s open on a Monday. Oh, and 3) It’s historic. And 4) It’s cheap (bonus!).”

Time Out (2014) “The affordable prices and friendly service convinced us in the end to upgrade Bouillon Chartier from an amusing, clichéd spectacle to our new regular hangout.”

David Lebovitz (2009) “It’ll be a sad day in Paris if Chartier ever shuts its doors. True, the food isn’t exceptional. But it’s cheap and people seem to flock here in droves… I don’t think you’ll find a more perfectly-preserved relic of an old Paris… and a menu that hasn’t made a single concession to any of the culinary advancements of at least the last three or four decades…”

Le Figaro (2008) “C’est toujours le même choc visuel dans ce bouillon plus que centenaire qui transporte instantément à l’époque des crinolines. Mêmes cuivres, moulures, verrière, miroirs, éclairages globes, tiroirs à serviettes, etc., enceints dans un ample espace… même service en noir et blanc (parfois virtuose dans le maniement des assiettes et des verres)…”

Le Figaro (2012) “… du bon goût de la province… l’aligot­, traditionelle purée au fromage et starlette locale, s’agrémente d’une bonne bête aveyronnai­se (tartare, faux filet, entrecôte, saucisse, côte de bœuf, pièce du boucher)…”

  • François-Régis Gaudry (2011) “….céleri rémoulade et Cobb salad, Cheese burger et plateau de fruits de mer, cheese cake et poire Belle Hélène. Menilmontant et Manhattan, même combat….Floréal aurait droit à un truc du genre : « A des facilités et beaucoup d’imagination, mais ne les exploitent pas jusqu’au bout. Peut mieux faire… »”
  • Gilles Pudlowski (2011) “Les gens du quartier, branchés ou débranchés, en terrasse, les bobos curieux à l’intérieur. La maison fait rendez-vous en continue, table aimable….Mais le lieu a des prétentions gourmandes…et tout n’est pas parfait, loin de là…”
  • Phyllis Flick (2011) “The bun was homemade, as were the fries, making it one of the best burgers I’ve had in Paris…This is probably also the only place in Paris where I’ve ever overheard a table of chic looking Parisians order hot-dogs for dinner.”
