A lovely setting but i was not at all impressed. The lack of any organisation was evident and the Chefs had no head gear The food was mediocre. I will not plan a revisit for some time

This place is great for people watching. The baguettes, coffee and chocolate fondant are divine. Love this place for lunch. Staff very accommodating.

Soulless place. Poor selection of pastries piled on a tray at the checkout. Relatively indifferent staff - didn't at all feel welcome. But the coffee was excellent and despite the limited choice, so also was the croissant. The one large window seat gives great view over Trinity. Baguettes looked like they hadn't been cooked - slightly off white. I had hoped for crispy brown so didn't purchase. Don't think I'll be back. Pity, I had looked forward to the visit.

Zut alors! The food here is superb. Open to members of the Alliance Francaise (french language institute) but also to the general public. It's more akin to a cafe/brasserie than a restaurant but the chefs and wating staff are French and it shows in the food... Try the charcuterie platters - I had the mixed one with dried meats and cheeses - really wonderful and very good value. The only thing is that the 'resto' is occasionally reserved for musical 'soirees' etc so it's not always open in the evenings. Oh - I think they re-named it recently to 'La Cocotte' Bon appetit.

One of my favorite cafe in Dublin. It's just perfect for a quick lunch! Food and staff are lovely!

Eat here often with a friend. It is quiet, well lit and friendly. Rotating art/photography exhibits make me feel like eating in museum space in Paris. Even on rainy days the big window make you feel cheery. I especially like the smoked salmon salad. It is good value for the money. Soups are hearty.

The best coffee in town, the best French pastrie in town and the best sandwiches in town - and such good value. The place is full of academics form Trinity who come over for morning coffee and lunch. Spacious, bright and quiet (no music) and really friendly staff. And cheap!! I thought this place was a real gem when I discovered it!
