Our daughter made a reservation for the three of us on a Monday night, which I strongly suggest as this is a very small restaurant that fills up quickly in the evening. I believe the offerings change often so I will not spend time describing our specific meal. The food was excellent along with the service and friendly atmosphere of... More

La Cocotte is a wonderful place serving scrumptious, seasonal, home-made food. We particularly recommend the foie gras, ravioles, duck Parmentier and salted caramel croustillant. And Harry the super cute French bulldog who loves your attention!!!

This place might not look so good at first sight. But the food is really good and genuin. It was like a sundaydinner at your family's place where you get reminded of that really good stew your mother makes. Desserts very good as well! Worth a visit! :)

Although fully booked they managed to fit me in. Enjoyable three-course meal of chestnut soup, lamb and lentils and tiramisu, with an acceptable house wine for less than €40.

Amazing flavours in a really small restaurant in the old Ecusson neighbourhood close to Saint Roche church. Really good value for money.

Excellent and original French food in a small restaurant with outdoor seating. Reservation is definitely advised. We went there for lunch. Besides the "lunch plate" (3 small dishes + cake for about 12€), the regular menu was available as well for 26/29€ (2/3 course meal), 3-4 dishes to choose from. The ravioles salade, vegetable crumble, parmentier de canard and particularly... More

Been there twice, once for dinner and once for lunch. Both times the food was excellent -delicious food prepared with care. The owner is very friendly and is proud of his establishment. Reasonable pricing given the quality. Highly recommended.
