Stumbled upon here by accidant, and glad we did. Small cozy testaurant, maybe 20to 25 places inside. Not very spacious, tables very close to each other. My colleague, not one of the smallest persons, was sitting on a small plastic (but design) chair literally with his elbow on the table beside him. Just for this a rating of four instead... More

Arrived to a surprised hostess who had to be shown our booking in the book. When shown the table it obviously hadn't been prepared disrupting other guests. After a while sitting down I had to indicate for menus as she was on her phone. The food burned squid with lumpy mashed potatoes (a strange combo) and a strange sweet chopped... More

Had a very delightful lunch at Chez Nathalie. The service was great, the food had a bit more flare than expected at the typical neighborhood bistro like this. The salad ordered for entre was spit for us to share and the two mains (lamb special and paella risotto) were delicious. The prices are appropriate for the quality and service. A... More

We ordered appetizers, main courses and desserts and all were top notch. This is definitely worth a stop if you are... More

Located in the heart of La Butte aux Cailles area, this small restaurant has a cosy ambiance. Service is smoothly efficient and the menu is simple but serious and rigorous : fresh products with some creativity.The tuna and the encornets were greasy. We took entree+plat+dessert for 40€ which is a little over priced to my point of view.

Chez Nathalie is a cut above the other eateries on Quail Hill. The waitress is friendly and the kitchen is a bit more imaginative than the surrounding bistros. Its neighbours tend to pack the crowd in but this small restaurant has just 26 seats and a far nicer ambience. Our dinner was uncrowded, with good service. Wild strawberries with whipped... More

We were now in December at the restaurant, we found the place very cozy, very attentive owner, we explained the dishes and told us some great wine. Surely it back on the next trip to Paris. It was the best place we eat this time in Paris. I indicate to all friends Chez Nathalie.

Not such a good experience for us. They waited until we had completed a starter before telling us that not only was our main course as ordered not available, but that there was only one item on the menu available (that being a dish that people at the next table recommended against, and which we had already observed to be...

This is an outstanding though very humble place. Small dining room with personal service and superb fish dishes. The entrees were excellent and the main fish courses were very creative cooked with a lot of imagination. Prices are reasonable for this excellent experience. A place to come back

Neighbourhood Profile
Place d'Italie / Quartier Asiatique
Far off the beaten path, this part of Paris is a forgotten gem worth exploring. Avenue d’Ivry houses Europe's largest Chinatown with great Asian supermarkets and shops, and a thrilling atmosphere around Chinese New Year. Place d’Italie impresses onlookers as soon as they set their eyes on it. Not far, around La Butte aux Cailles, the streets suddenly imitate provincial France and you’ll feel like you’ve been transported. The beauty of these streets lies in their surprises around every twist and turn.
