Les Cocottes de Constant?

Will be staying in the 7th on an upcoming visit. Have heard from a friend that Les Cocottes is excellent. Would love to hear any reviews from those in the know. Merci!

  1. I like the crab with sucrine lettuce, the arugula salad with lardons and poached egg, the langoustine ravioli with artichoke puree and the chocolate tart. All are delicious and it's a lively place to eat.

    1. Pros: very good cooking at reasonable prices
      Cons: no reservations, diner style seating.

        Another pro: very nicely priced wines by the bottle, dirt cheap selection of wines by the glass, some starting at about 3e per glass.

      2. fun atmosphere, good food. 3 cheers for pied de cochon in potatoes.

        1. was just there last night. place is quite awesome. Had the chicken fricasse, totally classic, really delicious. Get there before 7:45 to get seated immediately or be prepared to wait. I like to be there by 7:30. The ceasar salad (a dish I *never* order anywhere else) is really quite nice as well.

            Had lunch and really enjoyed it. Excellent staff. Very good frisee/lardon salad, and beouf au carrot, and I know this is heresy, but I thought the rice pudding was the best one we had out of the 3 we tried, there, L'Ami Jean and Epigramme.

              Thank you all for the posts! Laidback, sorry I missed the earlier thread. Thanks for posting the link. Glad to hear the reviews are similar after two years. Sounds like a place we'll try.

            2. highly recommended, great food, pleasant service and don't forget the chocolate tart ...... a must try.

                I 'live' in the neighborhood when in Paris. Will arrive Nov. 1 for 6 weeks. I always go to Les Cocottes for lunch on arrival day, unless timing is just vad! I always know that I can go to Cafe or Cocottes for dinner or lunch if I arrive early..which I do. I also dine at Violon. The Constants do feed me well when in Paris. I can get lazy..the food does not get much better and it is so very convenient!!

                    Closed Sunday, but Cafe Constant nearly next door is open (and I think it's a bit better in terms of cuisine).
