Pretty good meal. Good food and wine. Waiter was clearly brand new which didn't help but his boss was excellent.

This restaurant, over all, is below average. The food is decent, the location is good and the staff are not particularly friendly. We speak minimal French, and our waiter was visually annoyed by our attempts speak French to him since he spoke little English. I would not recommend this restaurant.

We ate here as it was recommended by hotel staff and walking distance. Service and food was good, very crowded and tables close together so if you like cosy this would suit. Reasonable prices and good wine list.

Service was excellent, accommodating us despite the fact we hadn't booked and were between lunch and dinner. Menu choice is classic French, you can book upstairs rooms for meetings / groups / parties etc. The Moules frites were perfectly cooked with very few wasted mussels and generous portions. illes flottantes like fluffy clouds. Seemed a genuinely friendly place with classic... More

The restaurant is quite large and preserves all the charm of the thirties (it opened in 1932!). We visited on a Friday night and it was practically full. The tables are very close to each other, so it is quite easy to engage in conversation with your neighbors. Jenny offers a "formule": entrée + plat, ou plat + dessert, at... More

Wonderful period dining room that was pretty full on a Thursday lunchtime. Great shellfish to start and flavoursome French onion soup. The mixed fish casserole was hearty and filing. Visited this place 20 years ago and it's still great

We ended up at Chez Jenny on Christmas Eve because when we were calling around for reservations it was the only place that had a table for us. As it turns out, on our walk there we saw that there were plenty of places open to eat. No matter, we had a nice dinner there. No complaints. The server was... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
