Chez Clement is a chain of restaurants that is not considered best in town, but we must admit Clement Champs Elysees is the best quality price ratio on this expensive avenue.

Des Gars dans la Cuisine

In the heart of Le Marais, close to Picasso Museum, innovative and fresh French food with affordable set menu at lunch for 14 euros. Good wine glasses.

The chef, Gil Rosinha, creates the dishes himself depending on the products which are available. The dishes are all thought out and diverse.

Chartier

A legend in itself, Chartier is over 100 years old and still very much alive. The restaurant is dear to native Parisians, which might help explain why it is just as beloved by tourists from the world over. In 1896, the Bouillon Chartier was born out to provide a decent meal at a very affordable price and give customers good service in order to earn their loyalty.

50 million meals, and four owners later, the recipe is still every bit as much a success. The dishes are traditional but with a wide range of choices at frankly unbeatable prices. Enjoy leek vinaigrette, hard-boiled eggs with mayonnaise, vegetable soup or snails for starters; meat, fish or stews come next. The menu is a long one, the meals are authentic and the mains are around 10 euros. For dessert, ask for the famous home-made Chantilly cream. Chartier takes no reservations and if there’s a big line. Wait in line. It's worth it.

Cafe de la Tourelle

Parisians like us can miss La Tourelle for years. The local who recommended it to us hesitated. If more people know the place, it could change the wrong way. No web site. No thrills. They focus on food the old way and serve delicious home made French dishes at more than affordable prices. 16 euro set menu.

For more than 100 years, Cafe de la Tourelle has been a neighborhood restaurant for working Parisians. While the place has changed hands a few times, most recently in 2000, nothing much has changed. There is nothing hip about La Tourelle. No trendy menu, no cute server, no floral arrangement. Even the address, though in a highly touristic district near Notre Dame, is on a quiet side street off the busy Boulevard Saint Michel. The outside looks staid and forgotten. Get in and try it.

Excellent two course set menu for lunch at 15 euros.
