Absolutely excellent lunch- fixed price menu at 42euros good value- generous helpings of beautifully cooked food, service friendly and slightly quirky, but all adds to the ambience. Rice pudding I normally dislike intensely but this version was memorable for all the right reasons

Booked ahead and was excited about visiting. The bistro has tables joined up with no room for elbow manoeuvres !!!! The place was full of Americans and quite frankly I was disappointed with the noise and stuttered service. Chef proceeded to shout at his staff Gordon Ramsey style . The food was ok but I've had far better in Paris... More

The food is good, but too expensive compared with similar restaurants in Paris I did not like the smell of food all over the restaurant, need to change clothes afterwards

You'll eat so well, that you won't have room in your tummy for another meal. Go for lunch and plan to skip dinner. The jamon iberico was unique and smoky, served with great bread and butter and a big jar of pickles. The Parmesan cheese soup is famous and delicious but super rich. The vegetarian orzo with shaved truffles was... More

We had the opportunity to dine at this tiny, wonderful restaurant while in Paris. Tables are crammed next to one another so hope you get a friendly neighbor like we did. The meal was absolutely spectacular - exactly what you would hope for in a Paris restaurant. The staff was very welcoming. Portions for one were enormous and should be... More

My last visit to Paris was 5 years ago and L’Ami Jean was the restaurant I always want to go back. This time I only have 1 night in Paris I still preferred to go to L’Ami Jean. This is a bistro style restaurant better for a group as they have movable long table setup so always it is very... More

I am not a big eater, so multicourse/tasting menus can often turn into death marches for me. I'd done a lot of research on restaurants and as this was going to be my daughter's first meal in Paris I wanted her to go to a "very French" place, whatever that is. So I picked L'Ami Jean. It was a brilliant... More

Traditional French, great meat dishes in long cooking, excellent cote de boeuf. Friendly service which make you feel at home. English is spoken. Do not plan to make any exercise after dinner. I will be back.

I have been in Paris eating at many restaurants and in general most have been very good . We are used to tight tables which first made me uncomfortable but they actually end up being a positive because of the interaction with locals even with our poor French and their much better English . We were unable to read the... More
