My spouse had the paella mixte. True to flavors of Barcelona/Valencia, although served in a paella pan, it was cooked in another large pan then served in the small pan. It also did not have any chorizo although it did have chicken, mussels, and shrimp with nice saffron rice. My dish was pork ribs with great smoked paprika glaze sauce. We arrived just after the lunch hour rush, so server was struggling to clean tables and serve us but he was always friendly and patient with our broken French/Enlish. Prices were very reason able and food had authentique Spanish flavor. We'd go back.

Stopped for lunch here since it was right beside Musée Cluny du Moyen-Âge.
Great Paella, the mixe version was on the lunch menu.
Lunch menu prices are very good for Paris.
Service was nice, had no problems with our Quebec french.

Me and my wife had a great time at Cafe cantante. Paella was great but tapas were even better. The staff was very friendly and helpful, specially one of the waitresseses who translated the entire menu into english for us, and she also recommended us a great argentinian wine. We will go back here anytime we're in Paris. No doubt about recommending this place!

The restaurant is just across the street from Musee Cluny and not far from Notre Dame.
The lunch menu is very good value, food was nice and the service friendly. The framboisier was one of the best cakes I've eaten.
