There is also a smaller dining room upstairs as well, and
exceedingly popular with the locals the Cafe
Constant takes pride in its efficient service, quick turnover, and a very well prepared
simple traditional French cuisine for a reasonable price.
Considering it is located within an expensive area of Paris,
situated in the 7th Arrondissement not far from the Eiffel
Tower and the Musée D'Orsay, you can have a
three course meal for only around 33.
You do not get fancy menus handed to you like you would at many restaurants in Paris, but everything available
that day is written up on an old fashioned blackboard, with each course having a fixed
price, and the dishes available vary dependant upon the seasons and what produce is
Some items you may see on the menu include a terrine of pork and foie gras with lentils in
vinaigrette, quenelles of whitefish, beef tartare, profiteroles, etc and they serve wine by the glass, bottle and carafe.
The bistro type food with some of the
traditional recipes from Christian Constant's Grandmother has become so popular with the
locals for bringing back their childhood memories, that you may have to wait at the bar
prior to getting a seat, but it is well worth it and you will not be disappointed.
Christian and Catherine Constant also own and run Le Violon d'Ingres bistro and Les Cocottes, which are both situated on
the same street as the Cafe Constant!
