Recommended by our hotel on our arrival to Paris. We enjoyed sharing a few dishes for lunch. We returned there our last day in Paris for desserts and drinks Everything was delicious. Staff was very friendly.

Great atmosphere here. Located in a popular little square in the Marais district. I had the snails stater and steak tartare main. Delicious.

The freshly made bowls are really a miracle, tasty and with all the good ingredients you like to have. A good offer for modern and health-conscious nutrition at fair rates.

I can not give ZERO star that's why I give 1. I went there with friends for desserts and coffee after lunch. Can not say much about the service as desserts took much longer than expected. the worst was the hygiene of the place. On...my coffee cup, there were lipstick marks, the teaspoon was completely unwashed with dry residue from coffee and tee. when I questioned the manager he reacted with indifference and literally said: OK, sorry1 which sounded like "OK leave me alone you tourist". So I ask where are the standards and the great French hospitality?More

The location is great, the place is nice and relaxed with old furniture. The staff is friendly and the sun was shining on us from blue Parisian skies. All that is fine, but the whole reason for this review is the Truffles risotto. That was...the greatest risotto I ever had. Do not ever kick is off the menu. You have struck gold with it!More

Chez Josephine is located in a beautiful and quiet square which was a true oasis during a hot August day in Paris. Our experience in the restaurant was unexpectedly good given its simple and a little rough exterior. The food was very tasty and our...water very polite. Everything was well cooked and reasonably priced. From our experience it seems that many locals chose it as well. We do recommend it and we would certainly go back in a future visit in Paris.More

The food is nothing special and expensive for the quality of food. There are much better places to dine in Paris. The service was nothing special. They pack you in like sardines.

Nicely located at the square, with modern menu with 90% of the dishes avoiding red meat which suits us - we were impressed with the veggie burger and the chicken with carrots. Tasty and elegantly served. The service was however slow, and not attentive. We...got the wrong bill with higher price at the end etc. But well worth a visit.More

We had lunch, had to wait for a table but the staff were efficient with organizing tables and we got ours quicker than promised. Tempeh Bowl and Risotto were very good and the staff nice. A big thank you for honesty as well: We accidentally...left double the amount of money at the table compared to the bill, and were already walking on the street when our waiter ran after us to give us our 50 euros back! Great to experience this, thank you.More
