A little gem – Chez Robert et Louise

On my last night in Paris, my friend and I spent our hours in the La Marais area; cold and shivering we tried our best not to just into a random restaurant to eat. Googling restaurants in the area landing onto the tripadvisor page we found Chez Robert et Louise.

In the dark, we navigated towards rue veille du temple, stopping by Pierre Hèrmes macaroons. There were a few people outside, and the restaurant sign was visible from across the street. Curtains half-opened and a peek of diners inside. We waited 5 minutes for seats, guided downstairs we passed the open roaring stone fireplace where cooks was adding a pinch of salt to the grilled sizzling steaks.

There’s a lot of cool vintage stuff downstairs, exposed white brick walls and a bicycle hung high. If you were in a small party, you would most likely have to share a table with another group. The 8-seated table we sat had another pair and later on during the meal another couple joined the table.

What’s on the menu?

Since it was a steakhouse, mainly meats and French food.

 

Since eating at Le Garrick back in London, I knew the escargots garlic snails were a must. For steak Dee and I ended up with entrecote ribeye steak. All main courses are accompanied with sautéed potatoes and salad.

Escargots came in a steel bowl filled with 6 large snails; each one was oozing the melted garlic butter and was quick to disappear.

Steak served sizzling, browned from the flaming hot grill; my piece had bit of bone marrow in the middle. My meat was a true slice of perfection, easy to chew and dissolves in the mouth. Beef was richly flavoured and the salt enhanced it’s the natural taste, completely delicious.

Lastly, I wanted to end the meal with a dessert, a blissful tarte tatin. Fit for the gods, a truly tasty classic filled with peaches and light cream.

 

Robert et Louise is a charming steakhouse restaurant, a great little gem in the middle of La Marais, and I can’t believe I paid under €30. From the steaks I had so far this place has knocked the top spot from my Malta one.
