Outstanding Resturant - Edit

We had Sunday brunch there. Absolutely outstanding food. Nice restaurant, nice atmosphere. We talked with the manager at length and he was gracious and happy to speak with us about their recipes, the food that they cook, the spices that they use, etc. Highly recommended!

Amazing service and great food - Edit

What a great night we had. The service Adrien gave was great. The food was superb. Very delicious and i loved that he even shared some secrets of the kitchen. When we are in Paris on a Sunday we will definitely have brunch here.

Excellent - make a reservation!!! - Edit

Le Potager de Charlotte was a few blocks from our hotel and excellent!! We arrived from Boston during a freak snow flurry and were excited to make this our first stop, unfortunately we were not aware reservations were needed and had to come back the next day. I enjoyed everything we ordered and highly recommend making this a dinner stop on your itinerary, or take advantage on the brunch on Sunday!

Pros: excellent presentation , friendly staff

Cons: reservations needed

Extremely Friendly Owners - Edit

The food was great!!! The service and friendliness of the the staff was even better!!! After I noticed the How Not to Die books on display and struck up some conversation with the owner who was very kind and eager to give us recommendations on other vegan shops and restaurants. They said they were all booked when we showed up but said if we finished in an hour we could eat, we never felt rushed and they made a point to say that we can finish at our leisure.

I had the green lentils dish and it was superb! They didn't skimp on the mushrooms like some places which I love 😍😍

Nice restaurant but expensive with smaller portions - Edit

I enjoyed my visit overall. The staff were lovely and the food was aiming high, almost as if trying to prove a point about what vegan food an be. I think they proved that point quite well too.
The portions were too small for me and I was still hungry when I left.
This is one of the basics - if you’re vegan, you need larger portions to get the right amount of nutrition, not smaller.
The dishes are expensive too but they are aiming for fine dining so I can forgive that.
My biggest issue really is that the menu is extremely limited and the mains aren’t very satisfying.

Pros: Friendly staff, Aiming high with vegan food, Great desserts

Cons: Very expensive, Small portions, Limited menu

fine food - Edit

I have been here only once but really enjoyed their meal.
Waiters are a bit uptight but I find their plates to be excellent.

not sure about the hype - Edit

The staff was friendly, atmosphere inviting but we left hungry.

The food itself was generally good but our main dishes came out cold and had to be reheated.

Entire menu was gluten free except for the bread served as an accompaniment which struck me as odd.

Fantastic! - Edit

Very pleasant place, the staff were very nice. I had a full menu, where most of the dishes held high quality. Some of them striked me as odd, but still not too bad, although they tried to gastronomically upsell some kind of chickpea blini for far more than it could be stretched. The venue was cosy, although slightly cramped.

Pros: High quality, innovative approach, pleasant and de

Cons: Overstretching the virtue of some overly simple di

A top notch vegan restaurant - Edit

This is the fifth restaurant that we dined at in Paris for the dinner meal. Most have been very good. This one was the best. Great food that was simple, well presented and very tasty. Plus, a chocolate dessert that was relatively low in calories and did not leave me too full.

Pros: mostly Whole Foods, little to no added salt or sugar, English menus available

Cons: none

Best Vegan lunch - Edit

The food tastes great and was visual treat. We experienced their Brunch on Sunday during the Smmmile Vegan festival at the Petite Halle we were super satisfied as we had our friends who were vegetarian but not Vegan. We spend 3 hours eating and it was truly amazing. Highly recommend.

Pros: Visual spectacle , Great taste, Healthy

Cons: Limited option, expensive but worth

fantastic Sunday Brunch - Edit

After strolling the Montmartre district all morning into early afternoon, We called to see if Le Potager was open a was told we could have the last Sunday brunch reservation. The food was awesome and even though we were the last people in, we never felt rushed. The owner and chef personally delivered our food and presentation was above 5 stars, and the taste was of equally 6 star pleasure. The food was so good we tried to eat slowly so the experience would last even longer. The owner even gave us additional information on other vegan restaurants we might want to visit while in Paris!!!!!

Pros: best food ever

Cons: not more of this quality restaurant around

One of the best places I have ever eaten - Edit

What can I say? Adrien and his brother (the chef) are a dynamic duo who have turned Le Potager into one of the vegan treasures of Paris. Extremely health-oriented, there were copies of well-renowned books on veganism that demonstrated their interest in truly medicinal food. Adrien was very patient and kind in helping me figure out the menu options for the day, and I went with the 4-course brunch and got a juice as well. The presentation and aesthetics of the food were matched equally by the delicious taste. YOU NEED TO TRY THIS PLACE!

Pros: incredible aesthetics, medicinal food, unbelievable taste and service

Cons: it's not open 24/7

amazing vegan dining - Edit

As a family of 5 strict plant based eaters, it's never easy to find great vegan dining options in Paris but we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the savoury dishes & further blown away by the dessert dishes. Wow, joint owner & chef, David with his brother, really have an amazing quaint restaurant here, with all the right ethical reasons for anyone who cares for the nutritional aspects of what they consume, as well. Great to also see a couple high quality books on the bench of the restaurant, "How not to Die", by Dr Michael Gregor, clearly displaying the focus of the restaurant chef & owners in respect to health, nutrition & general positive ethical stance to the animals & the global environment. So amazing well done guys & thank you from the Ashton family!!

Pros: Food quality, service & ethical stance/behaviors a

Cons: none

Incredible tasting and healthy - Edit

I love vegan junk food as much as the next person, but I also enjoy meals that are pure veggies and grains, without the faux meats and cheeses. That is what Le Potager De Charlotte offers and it is insanely good. The owners and staff are also incredibly sweet and accommodating, ask them to recommend their favorite restaurants and places in Paris and they will not disappoint! Love everything about this glorious restaurant!

Great veg. place in Paris - Edit

Discovered this place by chance. While I was trying to download the Happy Cow app onto my new phone, we found ourselves already standing outside one of the far between vegetarian restaurants in Paris. Much better food than a couple of other veggie places I've tried in Paris. Also very nice decor and ambiance. Friendly wait staff, who also speak English. Enjoyed a nice bottle of wine along with our meal. The only slight downside might be the limited number of dishes on the menu - e.g. 3 main dishes, (I hesitate to write "entrée" because of the different American English and French meanings.) Definitely plan to visit again.

Pros: Great food, Lovely restaurant, and wine!

Cons: Limited selection of dishes.

Good vegan opt options - Edit

A very nice meal, but a bit over priced for what we got. However, vegan options don't seem to be common yet in paris, so this is a popular place and I would go again for the vegan food.
Good service, easy to find, busy - have to book,but we booked the day before.

Pros: All vegan, Nice decor , Nice waiter

Cons: But expensive for what we had

simple and lovely - Edit

This vegan spot is just a stones throw from my apartment and I finally got a chance to dine there! Very pleasant experience, great presentation and very filling. A bit expensive considering the ingredients are quite simple - you pay the price for its presentation. I recommend for vegans and vegan-curious people!

What a lovely find in Paris for vegan/vegetarian food. Took my meat eating husband who loved it as well. So reasonable priced for what you get. Staff was awesome and atmosphere. Would recommend booking to make sure you get in.

Great vegan fare - Edit

Really good, entirely vegan menu featuring French / European dishes. Sit down restaurant. Decent portion sizes; you will get filled if you order an appetizer and main. Lunch for two was a bit under €50 (no alcohol, and I think the lunch and dinner menu are the same). Has great looking desserts as well.

Amazing vegan paradise ! - Edit

I went to le potager de Charlotte while visiting Paris and was truly amazed: not only the place is lovely and the staff really caring, but the food was fresh, inventive, seasonal, colorful and very tasty: I had the "avocado egg" : "avocat façon œuf dur" and it was the exact same taste as an œuf mimosa! A true highlight on the menu!
The textures were amazing. So were the tastes and the dishes and desserts, nicely plated up.
The choice of wines is also incredible, you can ask the staff for advice !

Pauline, Ambassador for Berlin

Pros: fresh, seasonal, local food, very well cooked, incredible textures, nice staff, cosy atmosphere

Lovely vegetarian in Paris - Edit

We had a very enjoyable dinner there. The menu is seasonal and quite different from your typical vegetarian fare - think of it a vegetarian fusion where you will recognise your staples (hummous, nuts) but in a different context. Staff were friendly and spoke English (but better if you can speak French as the English menu translation was understandable but not quite right). Service was good but you will want to arrive early as the place gets busy. Prices were reasonable for a high quality vegetarian dinner.

Pros: Fusion of foods - interesting menu, Nice decor, English spoken

Cons: Fills up fast so be early, Can be crowded

Young and tasty cuisine - Edit

We went there for dinner and we really enjoyed the experience. I would suggest to book, though, as the place fills up very quickly (I did it through FB and worked very well). The menu is not very big but original and extremely tasty. We tried 2/3 of it (two starters, two mains and two desserts) and we finished all, even the deco!! They also have excellent wine, very good value for money. The service was quick and extremely polite, they kept on bringing us baskets of hand-made bread, because my husband could not get enough. I found the prices correct for what you get and would definitely go back again!

Pros: Unusual and tasty cuisine, Good value for money, Inexpensive delicious wine

Cons: Not very central
