Le Trumilou

Looking for "coq au grandmere?" This is the place. Grandmother is probably in the kitchen putting together a duck stuffed with prunes as we write this... Complete with a collection of wooden clogs and old-style crockery, this is a bit of provincial France, in downtown Paris.

Le Trumilou features hearty country fare and little else, so don't go expecting haute cuisine and waiters in tuxedoes. Instead you will find creative and satisfying dishes featuring wild mushrooms, the aforementioned "grandmother's chicken" and items like quail stuffed with raisins. The huge servings of food from this family run eatery will satisfy you after stomping around Paris all day in search of fashion or fun. Complete meals range from 20 to 30 euros per person.

Added bonus - the view of the Seine is to die for. Many diners have said this is the most romantic place they've ever eaten.

Three times in three years, I was always satisfied. If friends of mine travel to Paris I recommend this nice place. A jewel of Paris, thank you Le Trumilou, Van Garrett (Author&Musician)

Fanatistic lunch on a quiet Saturday. Wine was superb. The gentleman very kindly spoke English since our French was not very good, and he had a great sense of humor. I regret not asking him his name. This will be our only restaurant stop when we visit Paris. With excellent food and wine at a very reasonable price, why look anywhere else?

Have been visiting this restaurant for nearly 20 years now! Menu has not changed and I (sadly) have the canard aux pruneux every time and it never fails to disappoint. My latest visit in June 05 showed no let up in standards and we were the only non-French there. The saucisson lyonnais was a good starter. Water is placed on your table free of charge. Good to eat here and not feel ripped off.

Old-fashioned bistro. I have been visiting for nearly 20 years and the decor and menu has not changed - thankfully! Duck with prunes is a must.

Good value definitely romantic definitely not.Cigarette ash is more romantic and there is lots of it about.View what view? Unless there is another dining room higher up all to be seen is cars hurtling by.Still the food is excellent and plentuful.
