Description: La Coincidence est un restaurant de cuisine traditionnelle francaise et nord-americaine. Implante dans le 16eme arrondissement, le commerce se distingue de ses voisins par ses prix abordables, son ambiance detendue et le dynamisme de ses gerants. Ancien joueur de golf professionnel, Jean Baptiste rencontre Alban par hasard lors d'une soiree entre amis, ils decident de s'associer. De cette coincidence est ne un restaurant tendance ou cheeseburgers et cheesecake cotoient filet de boeuf aux cepes et Saint-Jacques au vin blanc. Une regle d'or : aucun surgeles. Ici, les legumes viennent du marche Saint-Didier et tout est fait maison.

“Nice unpretentious restaurant”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

We came here because it was near to our hotel. The menu is rather limited because it has a large section of tartare and hamburgers. We are not into raw beef and we didn't come to Paris to eat hamburgers so we focused on the other options.

We ordered the foie gras and eggplant starters. The foie gras was excellent. The eggplant starter a rather small portion with very little mozzarella and an uninteresting tomato sauce. But the eggplant was well cooked.

For the mains Cod fish and a steak smothered in foie gras sauce. My fish was dry and overcooked but the steak was cooked perfectly and was juicy with excellent flavor. The chef spared no expense with the foie gras sauce. It was excellent.

This restaurant has great staff and large portions. It is not pretentious In anyway - if anything it's way laid back for French restaurants. Aside from the desert The food is not really presented artistically as one normally expects in a French restaurant. It's presented family style without any fanfare. But it all tasted good.

“Very good food, not too chique and not touristic”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

We searched for a restaurant nearby our hotel and this one immediately stood out. It might not be in one of the nicest streets of Paris but it's definitely a place I would recommend. Very friendly staff and very good food. If you are looking for something else than all the tourist cafés and not for something yoo chique but very good food in a nice and friendly atmosphere, this is the place to be if you're in the neighborhood.

“Amazing food!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

We went to Paris for a one night getaway. I managed to book a table for 2 through tripadvisor on the day we visited which was fantastic.

The atmosphere in the restaurant was great, bubbly and we both enjoyed the alternative decoration.

With a full restaurant the waiters failed to give us menus when we sat down and we were waiting 20 minutes for our menus! When they eventually did arrive, the waiter explained each dish in detail (as the names were all in French).

The food was outstanding. And the red wine was exquisite (Cotes du Rhone - 2013).

I would advise booking as the restaurant seemed very busy and 2 groups were turned away without a reservation. Don't go if you're in a hurry though!!

“Exceptionally friendly little Paris restaurant with very good food & wine”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Found this small place about 20 minutes from our hotel, which was near the Eiffel Tower area. Lacking reservations, we waited about 45 minutes for a table for 5, but the friendly manager gave the 4 adults a glass of wine while we waited. Being a smaller restaurant, the menu wasn't expansive but everything we ordered was great. When the manager (owner?) found out that one in our party was having a birthday that day, he graciously brought glasses of champagne and a large candle to blow out. A wonderful ending to a great meal.
