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
