Dear Carolyn H, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. The Bouillon Chartier, which exists since 1896, is one of the oldest canteens in Paris. We offer simple dishes, good prices but good qualities, prepared mainly with fresh products. Sharing table, water...More

If you’re in the Paris area, enjoying an up-this-point lovely visit and want your last dining experience to be vile, confrontational and a waste of money, the Bouillon Chartier is the place to be. Through reviews, we were all expecting a long deserved big fancy...More

Not a top-tier restaurant. Don't expect very fine, fancy dinning. Tableware is old and not shiny. Quite crowded. You must share your table with other guests during peak hours. Serving speed is fast. The staff is not very friendly but good-mannered. The food tastes OK...More

I do not think they even take reservations. Get there early as its is very popular, well-priced...decent food and touristy...in the best sense. ask to be seated upstairs...you may be sharing your table but it is worth it... More
