It is an adorable restaurant which fit completely with what I think of as a "classic" Parisian restaurant. I had a cucumber salad to start, and it was so good, but I couldn't even figure out how they did it. The veal Normandy that I had for my entree was fantastic too. There was one server and one chef but... More

Really nice waiter (Jeremy?) , and lovely to see the chef in action. All the quality of the food was top notch and I'd suggest to go here if you're after some rustic cuisine and some nice fries to top it off.

La Cordonniere provides excellent French cooking at reasonable prices especially around the 1st Arondissement. If there is a criticism is the limited fish / vegetarian choices that however is overshadowed by the best Pear Mousse I've ever eaten. Also an excellent wine list.

Took my tourists here (I'm a tour guide) as they were foodies. Everything was fairly priced and quality was exceptional. Starters around 10€ range, Entrees were 25€ range and dessert also 10euros range. I attach a photo of my veal in a mushroom sauce with perfect fries. My sole complaint was (don't laugh frenchies!) No ketchup. My dessert which I... More

Had the ravioli and foie gras. Both out of this world. Main course was the pintade and pigeon, Both excellent. The Pernand-Vergelesses, 2013, was excellent too.

Small place with a very intimate feel. MAKE RESERVATIONS! Hugo and Jeremy take excellent care with both the food and the service. Just go ahead and get the specials of whatever Hugo is making that day. You cannot go wrong.
