This is one of our favorite spots in Paris. It is wedged between the chef's lower-cost cafe and a much pricier fine dining restaurant. The layout is a bustling diner, more counterspace than tables by design. The food is a modern spin on traditional French fare served in a rustic iron pot ( a cocotte), a one dish meal. The chicken and mushroom was superb, wines by the 50 deciliter excellent, service a tad slow due the standing room-only crowd waiting outside to get in. Arrive by 5 or after 9:30 to reduce wait times, no reservations.

We had scouted this place out via the review but were unable to reserve. Thankfully we found a couple of spaces when we arrived just before 1pm after our tour all the way up the Eiffel (to help build up an appetite!). Polite and efficient service as we sat at the counter and watched several lovely deals fly past. All three courses were very good - it was a la carte with a special starter and a special main - however none of them quite hit our menu of the weekend. The langoustine broth (only time I steered clear of foie gras over the weekend) and terrine delivered lots of flavour, then the main courses of lamb and the "cocette of the day" - veal in a sort of bolognese sauce - also delivered lots. Again desserts did not disappoint, with another chocolate dessert and waffles with lashing of chantilly cream and a delightful caramel sauce. Definitely would recommend and would definitely return in the future - probably the best meal of the weekend.

I have always been a huge fan of CC. Les Cocottes has excellent service and a delicious menu. The restaurant doest take reservations, so you must wait in a line, inside the restaurant. Which has most seats on a bar. So if you are looking for a quite place this isn't it. People stand in line inside behind you while you eat. If you are looking for a typical French experience, be prepared to only hear English in this restaurant. Most of the clientele is American and the atmosphere is quite loud.
I had pigs foot in potatoes with a salad of mesclun and white asparagus to start with.
The waiter was an "apprentice" but he was adorable.
Over all, I would probably eat here again, but not for dinner, for lunch.

The first thing that I love, they don´t take reservations. Everyone gets in. The place is always full and with a great atmosphere. Everything is delicious, and served in cocottes (big heavy pans). You need to try the famous chocolate tart by Christian Constant... just perfect.

This restaurant was recomended by Le Bristol which I believe is the best hotel in Paris.I met my son there and we were immediately seated towards the rear of the restaurant but had a great view of all around us.Young waitress was at first a little terse but brought water and menu straight away her english was also very good.Ordered wine and 3 dishes [Ritz Salad,Chicken in a Pot and a beautifully cooked omlette all to share].Our waitress became quite friendly and even though busy kept everything moving nicely.
Our food came as one which is what we ask for,lovely salad a signature dish for them Chicken more than enough for two, cooked perfectly and so very tender.
It was just a beautifull simple meal served to perfection whit a nice Burgundy to accompy it.
The sight of young children with there parents sitting at the bar eating with impecable manners was so very stylish and so Parisian.
On finishing our meal our now charming waitress let us move towards the front of the restaurant to enjoy another carafe of wine.This was one of many fine meals we had in Paris and Christian Constant can take a bow Great food,ambience and very well priced.
