Bouillon Chartier

In 1896, the Bouillon Chartier was born out of a very simple concept – provide a decent meal at a reasonable price and give customers good service in order to earn their loyalty. 50 million meals, and only four owners later, the recipe is still every bit as much a success.
The dishes are traditional but with a wide range of choices at frankly unbeatable prices. You can be sure that what you’re getting is quality, too as their suppliers are consistent and always among the best.
