You will fall in love with this small, intimate bistro, which serves traditional food. The menu consists of classic French preparations, such as Escargots, Cassoulets, Duck with Olives et al and is easy on the wallet. So sit back and enjoy the wholesome appeal of this place. And when you've finished, compliment and exchange useful tips with Didier Remay, the chef.
That's it. Find out for yourselves. Allard is a very good place to partake of good to great food in a very humble 20th century environment. If you'd like to understand French cooking, Allard's not a bad choice. Duck w/olives is really fun and good.
I don't know about a bloody $85.00 chicken. I've eaten 500 meals in Paris and I havent seen a bloody chicken. My wife and friends had dinner there several months ago, and had wonderful three course meals for 34 euros. I had a wonderfully seasoned steak that seemed better than any I've ever had. My wife noted that the wines we ordered, a Julineas, and a Sancerre where of a much higher quality than one would find with the same labels elsewhere.
The waitstaff was more than friendly
Yahoo prompts me here with the question, "What did you like or dislike about the place and why?" Well, that's easy. I disliked the fact that: (a) my $85 chicken was dangerously undercooked (blood actually ran when I cut into the thigh), (b) our waiter and the maitre d' were disdainful and wholly unapologetic, and (c) nothing was done to rectify or ameliorate the situation. Disappointing given the fact that the restaurant was well recommended.
My daughter and I were in Paris for 10 days in May 2007 and enjoyed our visit to Allard -would recommend it highly. Once we were assigned a waitress who could speak some english, we managed to order from the menu. At Allards the portions are large and the food is good. The restaurant is quaint from the outside (enter from door in side street)and has a lovely ambience inside although the tables are perhaps a little close for a private conversation. If you are one of the first diners to arrive - do not feel hesitant to request another table if you do not like where you are placed - they are very obliging.
We are returning to Paris in October and will be booking dinner for my husbands birthday.
First we had trouble finding the actual door of the restaurant. My husband and i were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary and we really didn't know which restaurant we should go to. We were early so we had to circle the area until our time of 700pm when the waiter sat us in the corner of a very tiny room. After 5 minutes, he came back and changed our seat to a more comfortable area. We ordered the chicken for two but it seemed ike it was more for three or four. The chicken was very good though; it reminded me of being young and in the countryside. I am fully aware of the French culture when it comes to dining and not attending to you all the time. They would rather have you eat and enjoy but I thought the wait was really tooooo long at that time. The problem was, we were the first one to be there and the people beside us came maybe half an hour to one after us but because we were in the corner and all the tables are somewhat connected, we literally had to wait until everyone was done because the waiter never came back to us. He only came back to give the bill to us and the others next to us at the same time.
Andre Allard is a wonderful treat in Paris, located in the 6th Arrondisment. The hearty french cusine is made up of traditional french farm house cooking. Try something you would not normally try, ris d' veau. (sweet breads), escargot, something, you will realise that something oddly foreign to an American can be fantastic. The Chicken for two is a favorite. Great wine list. Make a reservation.....
