French Restaurant
$$
“Les Cocottes is family comfort food at its best, but with gastronomic flair that only Constant brings to the table. It reflects Constant’s roots – his mother’s cooking – with the culinary skills he developed at star restaurants such as Les Ambassadeurs at the storied Hotel de Crillon, Ledoyen (another Michelin three star restaurant), and The Ritz, which ultimately helped him become the genius Chef and restaurateur that he is today. Les Cocottes does not take reservations, which usually means you need to show up early (promptly when doors open), wait a while, or show up late (after 10:00 for dinner). ”

Auvergne Restaurant

“3)Have lunch or dinner if you’re starving to the Plomb du Cantal (3, street Gaîté or street du Maine). Cross Av du Maine and take the little street of Rue du Maine on the left just beside the nice bakery go ahead you’ll find it on your right or continue for the second one in the other side of Gaité street just in face of you. You should be there early enough around 12h or 19h to find a table as they don’t take any booking.”

French Restaurant
$$
“Simply excellent. It all looks simple but it's all so fine, fish and meat perfectly cooked, everything homemade, great entrees/desserts too. The place is a bit pricy (16-20 euros for main plate) but it's well worth it. They don't take reservation, you have to be there to be seated. If it's packed, don't worry, the neighbourhood is FILLED with restaurants. ”
