We especially went there for the Paella because there was an extensive article in Le Monde about the chef Alberto Herraiz who was supposed to have re-invented the Paella. We had reserved on the internet as this restaurant seems to be very "à la mode" these days, and the staff made sure that we really would come by sending an email, sms and calling the same day! However, we were a bit disappointed: The Paella was good but by far not as good as the ones we had in Andaluzia during Christmas holidays: too much rice, not enough seafood although we paid 9€ extra for the langustines. Also the tapas need some refinement to live up to the expectations. The wine list is rather pricy. All in all: not bad but nothing extraordinary for the money you pay.

An outstanding restaurant in Paris. I really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The chef is really friendly and recommends the must-haves on the menu. Definitely try the Pallella a l'encre de seiche. Unforgettable culinary experience! We got the cookbook as well, highly recommended

We chose Fogon for dinner for URL last evening in Paris. It was delicious. We did not do the recommended tapas menu because my husband does not eat seafood, but we had two wonderful entrees (which are starters on French menus) and a main course designed for two. Our waiter recommended a lovely bottle if wine.

The atmosphere was very nice, and after dinner we roamed around the Latin Quarter before hitting the metro back to our hotel.

Lovely restaurant, with great service, the paellas are still good but the tapas need a lot of work in order to live up to its reputation and to do this lovely restaurant justice. Although not pleased with the food will come back because we love Fogon and hope that the food will return to its old standards that made it a remarkable little place.

My husband and I live in Paris and as he's a chef, we like to eat out a lot! We decided to opt for some Spanish cuisine and found favorable reviews of Fogon on our trusted source parisbymouth.com.

Living in Paris means you often crave cuisine other than traditional French. So we were very excited to try this place.

We started off with some small plates and sangria which was delicious! The bread with tomato spread for a starter was a bit bland, but still good. The chorizo appetizer, in my opinion, was too much for 2 people - could have done well with 1/4 the amount. But good flavor! i some of their

Then we ordered the jambon paella. Really loved this dish - very traditional, flavorful and filling! We couldn't finish it all...made us wish we could have asked for a doggie bag!

All in all a nice evening. Would definitely recommend to friends and will probably take guests there in the future!
