I was looking for a (any) restaurant in the Clichy area to make a change from eating in the hotel.
Based on other reviews on this site, La Cocotte seemed like the best first choice and I'm glad to have chosen it.
As with other reviewers, the restaurant was a little difficult to find, but that's more the sat nav's fault.
I hadn't reserved but we got a table anyway, next to the radiator, so that was a good start.
We got some smoked ham for nibbles as we were reading the menu. Chose the rib of beef to share with my friend, and it was a great choice: the waiter brought the meat out on a chopping board to present it to the table, then took it away to slice it up and add some seasoning. The smell of the meat stayed with us at least 2 minutes. It was, by far, the best bit of beef I've had in a long time: cooked just right and full of flavour. There was some meat left on the bone, and the owner brought a sharp knife over and told us to get stuck in. He wasn't going to tell us off for eating with our fingers & enjoying ourselves.
Then I had chocolate mousse with lemon marmalade hidden in the bottom which was pretty good too.
All in all, it was a long walk for some fine food. I think I'll need to go back some day

We went to this restaurant at the recommendation of a friend, got very lost along the way, got off at the wrong Metro station (Place de Clichy is very different to Porte de Clichy) and were tired, hungry and a bit bemused about the location of the restaurant before we arrived.

The restaurant itself was a revelation, yes it is quite far out of town and not on the tourist trail but the food was exceptional - the service was brilliant and we were very pleased that we had pressed on despite our tired feet!

For starters we embarked upon 6 Escargot - well it's got to be done once. All very good and fresh.

The Chateau Briand was the best steak my husband had ever eaten. I had a beautifully balanced duck dish with exquisite flavourings of cumin and a carrot and sweet potato mash. Everything was cooked to perfection, and perfectly seasoned. Our friends enjoyed a lovely monkfish stew.

For desert we had creme brulee and I had a lovely chocolate mousse cake (not it's proper name). All of these were lovely and not a morsel was left on anyone's plates.

This is a lovely restaurant where you can enjoy a truly exceptional meal for around 100 Euros per couple (with a bottle of wine).

We visited twice over a long weekend while staying with son and daughter-in-law in Clichy. The food is described as "cuisine artisanal", which you might think would be rough and ready but you'd be wrong. Everything is prepared with care and finesse and the waiter/owner is such an enthusiast for his food, he describes everything in detail, where it comes from, how it is prepared etc etc... A superb meal and highly recommended!
