It’s pretty much guaranteed that once you set foot over the threshold of Les Cocottes you’re going to be hooked. In fact, if you don’t live in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, move there. Find a reason. You need this place right on your doorstep.
For starters, you don’t need to make a reservation. Of course during the peak lunch and dinner times, you might have to wait a short while, but the staff are super charming and friendly and they have a great system in place to get you seated as soon as possible.
Inside is modern and fluid, contemporary and chic but importantly it’s not cold or aloof. The atmosphere is buzzing and lively: rather hip but not in a pretentious way. There’s a great mix of local Parisians and overseas visitors. You can choose to eat at high stools at the long curving bar counter that draws you inside to the spotless open kitchen and giant blackboard area with a skylight bringing warm light or at the tall tables, either individual or shared.
There’s a touch of magic going on at Les Cocottes because it manages to be a blend of everything. It’s smart but it’s casual. It’s fancy but it’s simple. But above all it’s warm and friendly and you’ll find yourself chatting to your neighbour or to the staff at the counter. Come for lunch. Come for early dinner and afterwards walk across to La Tour Eiffel to watch the sunset. Paris doesn’t get any better than this.
