This restaurant is quite nice but also confusing! It's presents itself as a French-styled American Diner. The decoration is really French with pictures of diners and American stuff! Anyways the food itself is tasty but sadly a bit overpriced! My parents paid roughly 70€ for...More

Went with a friend on our first night in Paris as it was only a short walk from our hotel. The waiting staff were very lovely and attentive and the food was very good too. The portions were big so it was definitely value for...More

We told the waitress she had already ran our credit card, but she insisted (even though my sister had the receipt in hand) that she didn't complete the transaction and ran it again. The food was great but if you are an American, watch your...More

Agreed with Gnome84 this is definitely a taste of America. I had the best cheeseburger of my life at this restaurant and the pastrami bagel sandwich is to die for. Wait staff is friendly, and the atmosphere is lively. Has a classic American diner feel...More

Awful experience. Waiter with beard gave us a very rude and unpleasant welcome: On arriving, when we asked if they had a free table the answer was "it is not my problem". We were given 45min to have diner and were chucked out as soon...More

This restaurant is a taste of America if you miss it! Good burgers, good bagels (pastrami bagel!!), and also good brunch saturdays and sundays!! You can find good mozza sticks with marinara sauce, which is pretty hard in Paris! The waiters are very friendly, good...More

It's tucked away from the main streets, but when you arrive you are greeted warmly! The restaurant is a very retro style with vinyl albums being played and diner style 50's chairs to sit on. Good selection of food, the salad was enormous but fabulous...More

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
