Absolutely delicious. Warm and friendly workers. Escargot was fabulous. Steaks were excellent. French fries, which were homemade, we're off the charts amazing. Great stop for your stay in Paris.

Very family friendly dinner in this bistrot opposite our apartment. Unstuffy and friendly staff. The food was really pretty good and good value for money. Charcuterie was well received by my younger daughter as were the snails by my teenage boy. Portions were generous.

Very good onion soup as a starter, and plat du jour, tagliatelle with shellfish, as main course. Very rich and full of flavors. Short but nice winelist, good prices.

Walked in and had a very good 2 meal lunch for 16 euros. It seemed to me that there were quite many locals having lunch. The waiter was really friendly and food (vegetable soup and osso bucco) was tasty.

A young man and his wife own this charming little place. Keep in mind this is not a formal restaurant where you would expect 5 courses. So, if that is what you are looking for you might want to find another spot. But if you...More

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops

I'm sorry I really don't know. They offer continuous service and we tended to eat early dinners most of the time. No reservation was needed for us.
