Situated on Place de la Nation, this authentic French restaurant is always busy with an excellent choice of seafood, meat and a very good value wine list. The wine is available by the glass, 25cl, 50cl or bottle to suit all tastes and pockets. Waiters help you out if your French isn't very good. From the traditional onion soup to... More

We stopped at Dalou because of its privileged location at Nation and attractive look. On the go menu we took scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and 2 Brouilly glasses. Fine but nothing more. No expresso because the coffee machine was KO ! Vague feeling that service and decor are fading away at Dalou. It's a pity.

The place was just okay, old, not well kept and with no charm, tables are way too crowded, service was bad ( a waitress passed by me and dumped ice on me and did not even bother to apologize as she picked it up). The food was bland, there were four of us and only one thought their food was... More

The service is terrible, the waitress left as we did not decide quick enough, did not try to help or advice us. Afterwards they did not have tools for the crab and she was again rude and arrogant. Food is really not good for Paris standard. Worst service ever! Do not even bother going there!

Honestly, if you want the truly Paris bad-attitude-type-brasserie, you will find it there. Impossible to get a welcome from ANY of the servers, impossible to get a seat where we wanted, impossible to be treated like a customer... I've never seen this of my entire life. You want to get a special garbage treatment and pay 10 euros for two... More

Is you are looking for a sure thing, a restaurant that invests care into every dish, that can be relied on to provide a decent meal no matter what you order from the menu, stay away. I've been going to Le Dalou for years, and have had some good meals there. It's conveniently located and I like the decor. But... More

We had a nice French Dinner with friends, fish was delicious with a spinach bed. Dessert creme brulee was really good. Our waiter was funny, quick and very friendly. Nice evening

We came in here last week as we had been to the Marco Polo 10 metres away on the previous trip. The place has a sophisticated and slightly snooty atmosphere and obviously looks like it should be a seafood restaurant, particularly when a small plate of shrimps (the tiny things) was put down as an amuse bouche. My colleague had... More

the oysters here were good, we had some foie gras here as well which was just normal. the service was extremely slow and people here were not friendly. The bread was stale as well.

Let's cut a long story short. If you are not too far from the Place de la NATION (lots of Metro and busses go there) or your Hotel is in the area, than, LE DALOU is a nice and popular place, no luxury, but simply fresh fish, oysters, mussels and many kinds of different sea-fish daily brought in, well prepared....

Neighbourhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make their homes.
