Loved the place. Bit noisy but gear food for cheap price. Authentic French food. It is always crowded so be there early or call in for reservation. But you should visit once if you want that authentic French food experience. Plus they have toilets inside which is great. GooglePlace - March 2018

The service here is absolutely wonderful. The thing is that the food here is a little better than good which was slightly disappointing given that we waited an hour to get seated (we knew about this prior to coming). However, the interior and the service were incredible that we don’t regret coming here. Staff are friendly and quick but as far as ordering the plates that come with fries and a meat, they’re just okay. GooglePlace - March 2018

Cool place with old traditions. It's one of the oldest French restaurants in Paris. You have to wait in line for hours sometimes to get in (no reservations allowed) but it's quite cheap for what they offer! Not the best food in the world (don't mistake me it's still very good), but it is very good compared to the price you are paying. And the place is huge too. The service is not so well. My friend once asked for an extra fork and a waiter was very rude to her he said if each customer asks for another fork it would be a disaster and started complaining about her but eventually he got her one. They take credit cards. GooglePlace - March 2018

One of the many highlights of my trip to Paris. The restaurant serves traditional French meal with several courses. The food and service is excellent, and the staff friendly and entertaining. And more importantly, very affordable. The restaurant was very busy the night we were there and she were seated next to another couple from Hong Kong. It was one of the most interesting evenings, with each of us trying to surmount the language barrier, talk about our respective home cities, and exchange our experiences during our respective trips. For anyone looking for a classic French dining experience, Le Bouillon Chartier is a must see. GooglePlace - March 2018

Wonderful wonderful wonderful place. We’ve been coming here for many years now and it’s always a real joy. Good food at reasonable prices in a beautiful setting- Paris at its most proper. Excellent waiters scrawling your order on the tablecloth in front of you always make you feel welcome. Would recommend avoiding peak evening as they don’t take bookings and queues can be long- lunchtime the best time to go. Don’t miss it. GooglePlace - February 2018
