My wife happened on this lovely restaurant while going to the Louvre. She had lunch and we went together the next day. It is quite nice. We ate upstairs and had the specials of the day. I had a lamb dish with rice. Everything was quite delicious. The staff is quite nice and the building lovely inside. Highly recommend!

The food was lovely - service friendly and helpful. This is my type of restaurant - clearly it is where the locals eat. No tourist trap here. No English menu - which is a very good sign; but the waitresses very helpful in endeavouring to translate. I'll be back.

We were seated inside upstairs where it was very hot without AC. We had 3 Entree ($45 euro )and 4 Plat du jour (46 euro). I think we had the salmon tartare which was like mush. The other plates were unmemorable. The service was fantastic. They brought a jug of water and ice!! We were so thirsty from the heat.... More

Enjoyed a memorable evening of traditional French dining at Les Petits Plats D'Emile with friends last Thursday, April 14th! Old style brassierie not far from the Louvre museum it was busy, packed with a youngish crowd of diners that night. Among us we ordered and tasted just about every dish on the menu. The organic salmon was cooked to perfection,... More
