Was looking forward to eating here having read the reviews. We booked for 9pm, arrived at 8.30 and a brusque irritable waitress told us that restaurant was full and so had reserved a table for us at a restaurant around the corner. No apologies. Needless to say we went elsewhere (not to the restaurant she sent us to) where we were welcomed and had a wonderful meal (Les Fabricantes). Tip for manager at La Mere Poule - it would have only been courteous and would not have reflected badly on you if you had informed us in advance that you were transferring our booking. You had our email address to which you confirmed our booking with you. You also had our mobile number. Shan’t be returning.

Great little french restaurant with a small selected menu. Great food and great service (which is not that common in Paris) try the « tarte tatin » totally worth it

We had lunch at La Mere Poule and loved everything about it. We sat at one of their outside tables, where the waiter was funny, informative, and attentive. We each had a different pasta dish and everyone was amazed at how thin and light the noodles themselves were. The sauces and topping were flavorful and not heavy at all. This would be my go-to place to eat pasta if it were in my hometown.

The food was delicious and fresh. We all ordered something different so I was able to enjoy several plates include the pork ribs, chicken, leg of lamb and the burger. All wonderful. We also had chicken spring rolls as an appetizer. Very small eating area, so make a reservation online, we did by chance but glad we did.

Chose this place based on Tripadviser reviews. It’s a very small and intimate place with a delightful waitress. Service was excellent really enjoyed the Rioja we chose. Although the food was good, it was completely overpriced for what it was. The main chicken dish was simply a quarter of a roast chicken with roast potatoes - nothing special for €18. The suckling pig which came recommended was tender but came with no sauce or seasoning. Expensive in my view at €28. Would not recommend at these prices.
