The Bistro

The Chantefable, formerly known as « La Rallye Gambetta » is over a hundred years old. For more than a century, it helped the transmission of French Cuisine traditions.

 

On its opening at the end of 18th century, The Chantefable was a tavern where local poets used to tell their tales and sing. Close  to the famous « Père Lachaise » cemetery, on the same block as Rue de la Chine one of Edith Piaf’s favourite spots, The Chantefable has steadily thrived in the heart of the buzzing 20th arrondissement in Paris.

 

Upon its restoration in 2000, the details of the ceiling mouldings where duly preserved, bringing charm and authenticity to the place. The mirrors, dating from the post war period, enhance this Art Deco setting and will transfer you back to the past – to an era of gourmets and epicureans.

 

Go and admire some reproductions of Toulouse Lautrec’s paintings in the back room. Here you will find sincere, generous and gourmet food. Throughout the seasons, you will enjoy our homemade treats.

The Team

In the restaurant, the team has proudly worn the traditional French barista outfit for many years, adding to the Art Deco charm of the bistro.
In the kitchen, everything is homemade. For the last 16 years Chef Laurent and his team have been making traditional dishes, all the while respecting seasonal products.
