Had a good piece of beef and a vegetable risotto, both good value and nicely cooked. Good selection of dishes and wine, and pleasant service. The dishes are certainly different from those of years ago, when it was a Basque restaurant, but that also came...More

The foods is mediocre and pricey, the service terrible. We sent back an undercooked steak which was returned to the table still very undercooked and the fries had been refried in oil...awful! 157euros for 3 is not cheap either. I would never eat here again!

Ate an early dinner here on a Friday. The food was amazing and the restaurant was very cozy. Appeared to fill up later in the evening because there were many reserved tables.

The lamb was superb. Husband loved his burger. Menu on a blackboard in either French or English. We made reservations online - The Fork.

Traditional french bar where you can have a glass (or bottle) of wine with a typical french menu. The "planche" is served with a pot of pickles. Toilets are clean, staff is smiling and place is busy.. Many reasons to go there.

We went here on our last night in Paris because we were looking for a low key authentic atmosphere with great French food. The interior looks like a movie set - it's exactly what you would dream up when you picture a restaurant in Paris....More

A branch of my wife's family has lived in Paris for generations and this is one of their favourite spots to eat. We had a light dinner there so I didn't try that many courses but I had a cod in pistachio sauce that was...More
