“Great local bistro with fabulous food!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

We ended up at the 20 Bellechasse as we were staying at a hotel on the street, so it was really a question of convenience. That said, the service was good, the food was excellent (especially the specials!), and the ambiance was vibrant. Note that the restaurant is quite small (by American standards), so you will be sitting close to other people, but the food and lovely wines will more than make up for any awkwardness!

Bon Appetit!

“Good place for a late dinner!”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

First night in Paris and staying at the Hotel Bellachasse we wanted something close by. Place was almost empty (the person in charge said due to a Futbol match) when we arrived although a few more groups came in later.

The food was good but the service was only adequate. Prices seemed about right compared to other places we ate at during our stay. Person waiting on us could not take his eyes off the futbol match on the tele. It may have been just my impression but the locals seemed to be receiving much more attention than us tourist.

I may have been a bit tired since my wife would have given it four circles. Her meal was was good and the wine selection was pretty good and reasonably priced. So if you're hungry it may be worth a try but don't expect fine french food.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

This looks (from the outside and upon entering) like a rather inviting, traditional bistrot. But soon, the lack of quality shows, in the food, in the service (smiling but disengaged) and in the unkempt interior. The location, near the Musee d'Orsay, will keep customers stopping by. Don't plan to do so and make alternative arrangements if you can.

“Not worth a visit, even if your feet are sore!”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

We had been walking around many of Parisian attractions, my husband needed food and a chair, so instead of going to a restaurant i had chosen from great reviews on this site, he decided he had no will to continue. We came across this restaurant, with a trip advisor sticker on its door and decided to eat lunch there. Good service, decor rustic however food poor, not worth the effort of chewing.

“Very good price value parisian joint”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

This is the perfect combination of tradition and fashion.
The restaurant is full of locals and tourists an it is better to book in advance.
Food is very French and well cooked. Don't expect high cuisine, expect traditional everyday dishes very well done with generous portions. Wine list very well priced and selected.
We go there either for lunch or for a big table of friends.
I recommend the experience!
