About the restaurant Chez René

"HISTORICAL LAIR - Paris would not really be Paris without these gourmet monuments. Chez René, an institution of the left bank since the 1950s, bistro-chic decor is handled to perfection: rows of white tablecloths, seats in red leather, copper hooks, Picasso, Botero and others on the walls.

SMALL RETRO DISHES - as a good Lyon restaurant, the establishment treats regulars to the grand classics of the region and the must-have French ones: bone marrow grilled with thyme flower, black radish with cream, fresh froglegs à la Provençale, hot Lyon sausage with pistachio, warm apples with oil...

PROUST'S MADELEINE - After this tour de France of local cream, can you still find a small square? The legendary "

Great lunch for me and my family. Even though we don’t speak French, we were made to feel very welcome by our waiter Daniel. The food was quite delicious.

We had an amazing meal. Daniel was our server and was fanstastic. He gave great recommendations and the wine he paired with our meal just made everything taste incredible. A classic French menu and great atmosphere. We loved the food and the service!

I came early and got right in. My server, Daniel , was great. He was friendly and helpful, nothing like the stereotype of the haughty, arrogant French waiter. I had a glass of Sancerre with a delicious foie gras.and then had the house specialty boeuf bourginon. The restaurant interior is attractive, decorated with art museum posters. Good location on Blvd San Germain.

This is an old-school Parisian restaurant which is what we were looking for. Food was more than acceptable with very large portions. Daniel our server was fantastic.

The salad was overdressed, the food just seems tired, and there was nothing special about it. Even the bread was mediocre. the restaurant has become...mediocre.

Meal after meal, year after year the staff and the chef at Che René continue to show what great food and service is all about. We look forward to every visit - we are always delighted. This place is one of the must visit restaurants in Paris. Thank you Che René- a trip from Perth, Western Australia, - all 14,000 kms for a meal is worth it ???? Special thanks to Phillipe and Daniel and the staff tonight - superb as always.

Chez Rene is the best. We have been to Paris 5 times, and have dined there every time. The staff, food, and ambiance couldn’t be better. A classic Parisian restaurant, we always feel that Paris isn’t Paris without at least one dinner at Chez Rene.

Classic French food. Terrace is wonderful. Inside is tightly crowded. We eat here every time we come to Paris ( 3 times a year). It’s wonderful food every time.
