This has several restos believe 11 in Paris, one in Bougival, etc; I like them an try the one in Bougival, and the bd Capucines in Paris. We had even celebrated my kids birthdays at Bougival near our old home. However, I worked in Paris nearby so did stop for dinner several times at the Capucines location.
Classic French and very good service. Children menus.
the deco is very parisien at Capucines, like a convent. Other like at Bougival is like a mansion or hôtel particulaire fantastics oasis of luxury with excellent prices.
Favorite Dish: menus from 14,90€ very reasonable at all season. up to 32€ around special occasions. I order the steaks here, and house red wine always.
There's a chain of Chez Clément restaurants through Paris; 11 in total.
The one at Place St-André-des-Arts is in the middle of the histir center of the Notre Dame area.
The terras even is build around a public potable water fountain.
Fresh food is served.
Plate service from Euro 15,--.
Yes, this is a chain, but we ate at one and the food was very good, the prices were about average and it was possible to get a table on a Saturday night for which we forgot to make reservations....
Favorite Dish: We started off with a seafood platter ~ Oh it was awesome, however, they don't rinse their oysters, so the oysters were EXTREMELY salty!
But, it was delicious nonetheless!
The place caters to the upper middle class in my opinion. It is very chic and the waiters are very polite. The dishes are quite nice.
Favorite Dish: I had aiguillettes de poulet, my friend had escalope de veau. Our bill was less than Euro 40.
I noticed that most of the guests were tourists at the time we went there. I had the impression that the waiter who served us is used to making the customers have their meals at a great speed. That was put bluntly alright but observe it when you go there.
Favorite Dish: The place is known for seafoods. I had a set meal. It was alright. The fish was very good and the soup was also very nice. The dessert was so-so.
I saw all the tips/reviews on Chez Clement and could not resist adding my lowly 2-cents worth.....
I forgot that in late Oct. 2001 I ate here
(the one on Boulevard Montparnasse - the one on Place St. Michel purportedly is better - at least better looking, but how can a chain of places that serve the same menu be that different from one to the other?). I forgot because, at least when I ate there, it was no big deal, average at best.
OK though for a Paris "non-event" type dinner, and on the plus side it is "affordable" (for Paris) with prix fixe around 28 Euros ($35.48 at exchange rate). Back when I ate there at xchange rate of ~ $0.88 / Euro, it only cost me about 20 bucks so I didn't mind it.
Summary: not bad, average, good for a quick "in&out" dinner when dinner that night is just something to get out of the way (though 40 bucks can be more wisely spent on dinner somewhere else).
Favorite Dish: They specialized at that time in what they called their "Rotisserie Menu" which is kind of like mild barbecued meats.
I made a mistake and had "Beef" rotisserie : Piece of beef, pork spare ribs with honey and spices, crispy chicken. - The seafood entrees are supposed to be much better.
The honey sauce was very mild and can best be described as "so-so." People recommend this place (it's a chain of about 12 restaurants all over Paris) so if you order something different than what I did I hope you might like it.
Ambience was not bad - a few Parisians, but there were lots of tourists.
Here's the menu:
Chez Clement rotisserie Menu
This is the best restaurant we tried during our week-end in Paris. In comparison to others, the prices were reasonnable (portions are big!) and the food was delicious. We ate outside with view on the "Arc de Triomphe" on the Champs-Elysees but it was also very nice inside (a very original decoration with spoons !). As it's a chain, you can find "Chez Clement" restaurants everywhere in the city (more info on the website) but I don't know if the quality is the same everywhere.
Favorite Dish: I had crepes filled with ham and cheese + artichokes + glass of cider + a piece of blueberry tart as a dessert.
The restaurant advertised continuous service and it was about 3.30pm. We were cold and starving - we waited at the service counter for about 3 minutes. Clearly the manager who was standing at the register was more interested in his accounts and bills than us, because we were completely ignored even though we were standing less than a metre away from him. Eventually a waitress came up to us to show us to our table (after having been ignored by at least 3 others). We then asked for details about the fixed price menu. The manager answered one of our party in a detached, disinterested way. When we asked for further clarification, he was just darn right rude and barked that he had just explained it all to us. We have had great service and friendliness in the past four days, this was the exception. We departed to find frinedlier pastures. And found them: just 100m away is Capucine Cafe where we throughly enjoyed every part of the experience.
I read a tip about this restaurant chain here before our trip so when I saw one close to our hotel I dragged my sister there. We shared a selection of starters as we wanted to try a bit of everything. I liked most of them, but wasn´t impressed with the creme brulee that had bits of foie gras in it. Our main dishes were really good - my sister had duck with foie gras and I had chicken, both came with mashed potatoes which was great. For desert we again shared a selection of the desserts - all very good. Very good service, nice ambience and friendly staff who spoke English.
I dined here on Bastile Day (14th July) 2008. It was the worst meal I have ever eaten anywhere in the world. Locals, who should know better, took us there. They had eaten there on other occasions and thought it good value. Maybe the Chef was on holiday, or drunk, or just not a Chef ! I had Duck Delight, some of it was raw in spite of my asking for medium. The sasuage served with it was also raw. Just awful ! Do not go there. Judging by the other reviews other restaurants in this chain may be good, but not the one that you can see the Arc de Trihump from.
