Relais de l'Entrecote is amazing. We prefer the one on Rue Saint Benoit. Not overly expensive and you get served a salad followed by steak with the most incredible sauce. You get a few servings and as many amazing frites as you desire. Definitely worth visiting

Love Chartier, the waiters were lovely with my dc. Patiently taught my dc how to eat snails properly. I did order in my crappy French so maybe that helped. Our steaks were all great and as you say cheap too. Fantastic atmosphere.

I agree that Chartier waiters aren't rude if you speak French. But I've seen them be mechant with Americans. And they had a go at my son when he ordered fries with a dish that is supposed to be eaten with puree de pomme de terre. grin

Enjoy your trip!

Le Recrutement Café

36 Boulevard de la Tour-Maubourg, 75007 Paris, France
+33 1 47 05 46 85

I’ve eaten here twice on separate visits to Paris, and enjoyed it both times. It’s cosy and quite casual, and the waiter who served us both times was really friendly- he asked us to try a new pudding they’d just made -for free -the second time! They have the sort of thing your dad enjoys, done well, but also more traditionally French dishes. It’s not fancy at all, but has a nice atmosphere.

Really enjoyed this restaurant run by Alain DuCasse / his team. Didn't like the Chartier on a Sunday although agree it's a busy lively place.

Another vote for Chartier. DP and I loved it. Didn't find the waiters rude but then I speak a little French so maybe that was it

Ha ha growling, I was about to say Chartier too. We have always found the waiters charming and very funny, but DH speaks fluent French which probably helps. Let us know where you end up OP.

Forgot to say. They do steak frites or poulet frites (chicken and fries) - both trad french style. It's not a relaxed romantic dinner for two. But it is an experience.

Another one we really liked was Au Chien Qui Fume at Les Halles. Trad French brasserie but a bit calmer and more upmarket that Chartier.

I like Chartier . It can be a bit hit and miss, and the waiters are rude (as they are everywhere in Paris) But it has an atmosphere like nowhere else. it's like being back in the Paris of Van Gogh and Monet. And it's cheap.
