“Nice atmosphere - busy with locals”

Quite a small menu, but what they do is very good. The assorted meat plate (slate actually) is particularly good. Can also recommend the chopped meat with potato topping (Shepard pie?). Help staff. An older English guy came in and the waiter helped him with the menu explaining the dishes. Nice touch.

I will be back this way in the future and will definitely stop by again.

“Moi j'adore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

I always go there when i am in Paris, nice cheese and charcuterie (ham, sausages....). The place is always crowded so for intimist dinners forget about it. With friends they have nice big round tables i love them. The desserts sre insane but with the food you will be full so if you want to enjoy the tiramisu..spare yourself the entree or like all parisians take your time to eat...it is not s race and in this restaurant you wont be press to leave. The success for this place makes it that often you have to queue for a table... Last time i went there in April i could not get a tale...

My partner and I decided to visit Chez Lili et Marcel as we were staying in Bercy during our visit to Paris.

The restaurant is just outside the Metro station so in perfect position.

We loved our meal here! The service was fantastic... I can't remember the name of our waiter but he went through the whole menu explaining it in English! He was superb... probably the best service received whilst in Paris.

We shared the cured meat selection for starter and had the Burger and Steak for out main. Both were cooked perfectly and very tasty, The wine was very good too.

I would recommend this place to everyone and would return again.

Thank you again!
