Thoughts on L'Oxalis and Cafe Constant?

Planning on going to both in a couple of weeks....found both in the red Michelin....

Should I get reservations for 7 people for a tuesday night...the place looks small (this is the week after Christmas).

  1. I'm a fan of Cafe Constant on rue St. Dominique for a low key but tasty dinner, but the restaurant does not take reservations.

      They open at 7. If you arrive at 7 with your party of 7, you will get a table! If you arrive at 7:30 or 8, you will probably not get a table!

      I eat at all the Constants regularly when in Paris.

    2. I would certainly try to book anyplace I wanted to seat seven people. Otherwise, you may find yourselves out in the cold...and it is definitely cold now. Seven is a large number for a small dining room to absorb.
