Had a wonderful two-hour lunch at La Bonne Cecile with an excellent 3 course menu for 20 Euros. Although we were a group of 5 mixed French and Foreigners - all first timers - we were welcome as part of the local crowd. Heard that the dinner menu is excellent, definitely needs a second visit. BTW, so popular reservations are... More

A colleague and I had one night in Paris before flying back and I'm just glad the hotel concierge recommended La Bonne Cecile. Started out with a couple of cocktails and then a perfect meal with an excellent wine suggestion. Both meals were excellent - the service was great and their recommendations were spot on.

We really enjoyed La Bonne in this vibrant part of Paris. The staff are delightful and very happy to explain the menu in English. The food was brilliant, 3 courses were all great. Ceviche was great but the duck and beetroot salad was a standout. My main course of duck and raspberry was also brilliant.

The service and food exceeded expectations. We typically would not choose the price fixe option, but that was the way to go. Nice atmosphere and setting.

We were looking for a good meal while staying in Paris. Since our hotel was in the area of Republique we looked around. If you stay on the main street it's nothing but fast food. Head two blocks off the main street and you'll find fantastic food. We arrived at Bonne Cecile and were immediately seated. I had a view... More

We ate here based on the recommendation of our hotel concierge and were so pleased we did. Our meals were excellent and reasonably priced. We ordered a bottle of Bordeaux - also very nice and reasonably priced. The owner, Benoit was charming and accomodating and Gaspar added a nice touch!

Okay really loved dinner had the beef that came with this great gravy sauce so good! Only suggestion I have is would have absolutely LOVED this place if my beef came with mashed potatoes for that gravy sauce instead of fries. Otherwise honestly a great place and I highly recommend it!!
