We had a great introduction to good French cooking at La Fontaine de Mars. Our waiter was delightful as he made fun of his English which was 200% better than our French. This is a very pretty and cozy restaurant with unpretentious food. We would...More

This is an old-style French bistro near the Eiffel Tower; my wife and I ate upstairs there April 2017. The food and service were impeccable, and the staff was glad to help with wine pairing. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of the experience.

You should be able to find their number on line. Check Trip Advisor because sometimes they have reservations available on their site and at least they will have the phone number to do so. You won't be sorry - great... More

Hello, I am just a tourist creating tips for others. I do not work at the restaurant. You need to make your own reservation. Just Google them and call- they are very friendly.
