We are big fish eaters and Cafe d'Angel is a delight. We ordered the scallops, ray, and cod and honestly could not decide which was the best. Delicious! They bring out a chef special taster while you wait (yummy), and refill your bread tray as often as you like throughout your meal. Service is very attentive and friendly. The only downside is that it is open Mon-Fri only.

En route to Cafe d'Angel, we were a bit leery as we passed the big, brassy bistrots aimed at a passing tourist crowd, but we could not have been more pleasantly surprised when we turned off the main street and found the cafe on a quiet side street. Clean-lined but not stark, it had immediate appeal from the street. We received a warm welcome as we entered, and were offered a comfortable table for two.

The two-course menu at 26 euros, or three courses at 32 euros, is a bargain, but with only two choices for each course, we preferred the a la carte options and specials. Ordering near the top of the price range, we paid 135 euros for three courses each, a decent bottle of chilled Gamay, and tip; we didn't consider the prices inappropriate for the caliber of the meal. When we asked for recommendations, our server assured us that everything was good and that it was all made in-house, possibly rebutting a recent scandal revealing that many Paris restaurants purchase frozen meals and pass them off as home-made.

We were offered a lovely amuse-bouche of two small dishes, one containing a dense blend of cod and salmon (I think), and the other a light serving of creme fraiche sparked with paper-thin slices of scallion and radish - tasty, and nicely paired. A starter from the daily specials was ideal on the steamy summer night: a tomato sliced horizontally and filled with fresh, creamy goat cheese, on a bed of mild pesto studded with lime. The other was a block of fois gras with apricot preserves. We both opted for excellent pan-cooked veal filet with mushrooms in a rich, deep sauce, perfect for the smooth potato puree served alongside. Bread was especially good (surely 'tradition' rather than 'baguette'), and the basket was kept filled.

The savouries were satisfying, but we could not resist one of the dessert specials - a dish of fresh cherries, served warm with cassis juice and a spoonful of vanilla ice cream. Not quite as fabulous as hoped, and the ice cream melted quickly on the warm cherries and heated dish, but still quite good.

Service in the small-ish restaurant was excellent; both of the waitresses who served our table were cheerful, helpful, and adept. The menu was exclusively in French, and the servers used French alone with us. Nonetheless, when a tourist family of four was seated at a near-by table, we noticed that the same servers used excellent English with them, so they were being distinctly patient and gracious in letting us exercise our French.

After a full day of sightseeing (in the rain), we were looking for an "unfussy" place to have dinner. And it had to be close to our hotel.... Cafe d'Angel proved to be the perfect choice. The food was excellent, the service was attentive, and the prices were very reasonable. Again, we all shared some foie gras, but then we each had our own appetizers and entrees. I had grilled dorade with vegetables which was very light and delicious. The desserts were also terrific!! This place turned out to be a little gem.

On a short street tucked away, just steps from the Etoile, this small gem is where we celebrated a girlfriend’s birthday. The different ‘formules’ are good values: 2 dishes for 26€ or 3 dishes for 32€ whether starters, main dishes or desserts. As I wasn’t very hungry, I had two starters both of which were delicious. Everyone was happy with their choices and the service was very pleasant – a good time was had by all! I will definitely return!

Pleasant service, well prepared food, good wines. I have been coming back to this restaurant for years. Small, personal, congenial. Good to go alone and for couples for a pleasant evening out.
